Post Ford confirms internally that Blue Oval B-car will be built on Mazda2

Filed under: Economy, Ford

Ford Motor Company is one of the few full-line automakers without a new sub-compact in the US market. That is destined to change now that company executives have declared what we've suspected for some time; the forthcoming Mazda 2 chassis will be used for one or more new Blue Oval B-cars. North America, South America, Europe, and Asia are all slated to receive some form of new B-car, based of the Mazda 2, but instead of creating a single global model, Ford will create unique top-hats to fit the needs of the market it serves.
Since Mazda has a reputation for great-handling vehicles and quick development time, they're fast becoming the defacto platform creators for much of the Ford world and the Mazda 2 platform is merely the latest example. We've been looking forward to a Ford B car for some time, but it looks like it's still two years away. Hopefully, we'll be able to enjoy the Mazda 2 way earlier than that.
