Contrary to previous reports, the Ford Ka might be coming to North America. Alan Mulally, CEO of Ford has confirmed that the company is considering bringing the sub-compact over.
The Ford Ka is smaller than the Mini. It is roughly the size of a Smart car, except less expensive. It has never been introduced in North America, but has been selling in Europe in great numbers over the past few years.
The Ka is very comparable in size to the Ford Aspire or the Ford Festiva. Small, nimble, good on gas and easy to park. What else do you need in downtown traffic?
If you don’t have the budget to buy a hybrid or a full blown electric car, the Ka might blow you away in terms of efficiency while having a low initial purchase price.
Watch out Kia, Ford is coming!
