Focus Active Cancelled!

Ford announced internally that it has pulled the plug on the US Ford Focus Active due to tariffs. A press release will go out. Development has stopped entirely, there are no plans to assemble Focus locally.

Ford is reassuring employees that Ford is the least vulnerable to continued tariff pressures and that Ford doesn't see a need for economy cars going forward because of SUV electrification.

It's a shame, I thought the Focus Active looked sharp and it's one less vehicle for a company that doesn't have many new vehicles to launch. Obviously this means more customer attrition than predicted.
