GENEVA The Ford Motor Company is expected to release details this week on a new family of subcompact vehicles that will be designed in Germany, engineered in Japan, assembled in Brazil and marketed in the U.S. starting in 2010.

The centerpiece of this new family is the next-generation Ford Fiesta, which is being designed in Europe with engineering assistance from Mazda. The new Fiesta is slated to go into production next year in Europe and other markets. A version to be assembled in Brazil beginning in 2009 is expected to be exported to the U.S., probably as a 2010 model, according to suppliers familiar with Ford's plans.
