The new Ford Mondeo, which was just introduced in China, will not be available in Europe, where midsize car sales have been dropping for years.
A Ford representative told Motor1 Germany that the "Mondeo" moniker will only be used in the People's Republic. When manufacturing at the Valencia facility ends in March, the Euro-spec Mondeo in all three body types will be formally decommissioned. Despite the fact that the automobile has been available for a decade, it is one of the oldest models in its class.
The next sedan is likely to get the same ultra-wide screen configuration as the crossover Mondeo of 2022.
The archrival Volkswagen Passat sedan has already been canceled, and while a next-generation vehicle is planned, Wolfsburg is reportedly only planning to offer it as a wagon. According to a new report, Opel will phase out the Insignia as we know it and replace it with a hybrid of an SUV and a minivan.
Skoda has announced that the next-generation Superb will be sold as a sedan if you still want a midsize sedan without paying the extra demanded by a luxury car.
The Czechs are also keeping the wagon alive, while the Peugeot 508 in both body types is here to stay for the time being.
