Re: Ford needs to use the Mustang Platform...
You are saying that Ford must left Europe, but keep its plants to build VW vehicles? That has no sense. If Ford left Europe, they need to sell the operations there.
The current negotiations between Ford and VW include to share platforms ( for comercial vehicles and possible pick up trucks) , but the plan can include EVs and autonomous vehicles. The plan is give some help to VW in USA and Ford in Europe. Maybe, VW can help Ford with small cars, and Ford will help VW with trucks. And that plan is a good plan, IMO.
...no, probably export from here. With the change to EVs, everyone is going to have excess factory space. No need to keep anything there, assuming import duties are manageable. If you've killed "One Ford," which was done to amortize R&D across more units, there is no way for Ford to maintain any profitability in EU with development amortized over fewer cars.
