AddFord will start familiar-sounding Ford2go carsharing service in Germany

With more than a half-million words in the English language and 10 digits to choose from, Ford had ample opportunity to not name its new European carsharing service pretty much the same as a competing service operated by Mercedes-Benz parent Daimler. Alas, opportunity squandered.

10Spy Shots: Ford Ka caught

The newest Ford Ka has been spotted by Auto Express, and the car in the flesh looks almost exactly like the Ka renderings that Auto Express published a couple of weeks ago. The grille could be a bit smaller than the one in the rendering, but it's difficult to tell without the highlights and chrome. The number of discrete elements in the GT-R-like mouthpiece, though, is the same.

AddJames Bond changes his Aston Martin for a Ford Ka

I still have to decide if this is just a measure to save money or to save CO2, but James Bond's upcoming film will feature the new but humble Ford Ka instead of an Aston Martin.

16Rendered Speculation: Ford's new Ka is coming

There are many vehicles manufactured by Ford that never see the United States market, and the subcompact Ka is one of those offerings.

13Ford Edge headed to Brazil

It seems like America is the only place where American cars aren't popular. Buick has huge numbers in China, and Ford's having a lot of success in Brazil.

The first-generation Ka was based on the chassis of the Ford Fiesta, but the new one shares mechanicals with the new Fiat 500 and will even be built in the same plant in Poland with the Fiat. The funky curvy design of the original Ka is displaced by the kinetic design of the latest European Ford models and a CityKa model will in

AddFord promises to keep the Ka affordable in Europe

The first generation Ford Ka was built off of the same platform as the larger Fiesta in Europe but the new upcoming model will share a platform with the recently announced Fiat 500. While Fiat has decided to follow the path of the MINI as a premium small car, Ford has decided to try and keep the new Ka less expensive. In Britain the 500 will have a starting price of almost £11,000 while the Ka is targeted at a significantly cheaper £7,500.
