The second generation of the baby of Ford's
European lineup is going kinetic when it arrives later this year. The new Ka shares a platform with the Fiat 500
and Panda, but it has a look totally in keeping with its stablemates. The kinetic design language common to other current Euro-Fords translates remarkably well to the diminutive dimensions. The Ka will be built at Fiat's
assembly plant in Poland. Ford's mini-car will also share engines with the Italian-branded cars. Four cylinder engines of 1.3L MultiJet diesel
or 1.2L gasoline varieties will be offered. The new Ka will debut in November of this year. For now at least there are no plans to offer the Ka in the U.S. market.
