Production of the Ford GT supercar will be extended approximately two years, to meet overwhelming customer demand.
Ford will re-open the application window to customers in selected markets, including the UK, for one month beginning Nov. 8, delivering approximately 1,350 Ford GTs for customers worldwide.
Car makers in the UK said they were “hugely disappointed” by the diplomatic traffic jam around the Brexit negotiations.
Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, “No deal is not an option but nor is a limited Canada-style trade agreement, which would create hard borders where they currently do not exist, ….the importance of frictionless trade to our highly integrated just-in-time business model cannot be overstated so we need a deal – urgently – that replicates the benefits of the single market and customs union to safeguard the industry and the 856,000 livelihoods that depend on it.”
The RAC has criticised MPs who want to accelerate the Government’s zero carbon drive.
RAC head of roads policy Nicholas Lyes said, “We understand the rationale behind wanting to bring forward the end of the sale of conventionally fuelled vehicles to 2032, but this would have to be matched with bold and decisive action from the Government that actually makes hitting the new date possible and there are still significant barriers that are putting drivers off alternatively fuelled vehicles – these include the upfront cost, access to charging infrastructure, and ease and time to charge a vehicle.”
