Anyone waiting for the new Ford Mondeo will have to wait a little longer, according to Automotive News Europe.

According to union sources, Ford has delayed production of the next generation model for up to three months at its Genk, Belgium, factory.

Production was scheduled to begin next April, but was pushed back, union members have told media outlets in Belgium. Ford apparently admits it is continuing to work through a number of issues to "ensure a robust, high quality launch," Automotive News Europe reports.

The new Mondeo, which was scheduled to hit European roads this spring, is expected to be revealed later this year at the Paris Motor Show. It's likely to share nearly all of its looks and hardware with its North American sibling the 2013 Ford Fusion (shown above), a model that debuted at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

Whatever problems the Mondeo faces, our sources tell us that these delays won't impact the Fusion's launch here in North America.

      Any word on deliveries to dealers here in the States? I call local dealers in Tampa Bay and they are clueless.
