Ford Says ‘No’ To 2019 Geneva Motor Show As It Lacks Major Premieres

Ford Says ‘No’ To 2019 Geneva Motor Show As It Lacks Major Premieres



The Blue Oval chose not to attend the 2018 Paris Auto Show that took place earlier this month, and will reportedly miss out on the 2019 Geneva Motor Show too, reports Autocar, after speaking to a Ford spokesperson.

Ford doesn’t see the need to embark on a road trip to Switzerland, spending a few million dollars in the process, with no major premieres under its belt. That’s the bad news, the good news is that this won’t become a recurring theme, according to the British publication’s source, who said that the 2019 Geneva event just doesn’t meet their requirements at the time.

OMG.....no automaker has ever declined a show because they had nothing to add.

Jose, your face palming is a bit over the top.

They're bringing it upon themselves. They deserve a double face palm.

Show us some excitement after all your news.

Very soon, like within 6 months, we will see new Bronco, baby Bronco, GT500, Explorer, Aviator, Escape and their new hybrid strategy across almost everything, and hopefully, more information on their strategy. No way worthy of a double face palm. These are all major products and mostly high volume.

Of those upcoming models listed, I think only the upcoming Escape (badged as a Kuga) will to make it to Europe. Paris 2019 perhaps?

The Upcoming Bronco was only referred to as global once (I think by Jim Farley), so it's a big question mark if it really will be sold globally.

Wings, something is wrong , here. If Ford will not attend the Geneva auto show in 2019 because will not have something new to show, this can be true because the Geneva auto show will be in March (5 months from today). Or , maybe, that 6 months will not be 6... maybe will be 12 or 18...

Geneva show is first week of March, which is a little over 4 months. I am really not sure about the cadence, mostly because I don't care to ask, but I do know that Detroit will have reveals. Geneva might not have new reveals for other markets, but regardless, 4 months or 6 or 8, we know the product is coming. I just don't get why it matters at which show.

Makes sense that Ford will not display new models (mainly for America and China) in a European auto show.

I wonder when Ford plans to launch the new Focus ST in Europe?

it's been a while since they show their latest new product and you tell me that in a 6 month time period they will show 6 new products?? really? I will have to see it happen to believe it! I mean, if it was Mercedes Benz I would believe you, but I have my doubts. So far, nothing for LA, so everything at Detroit?
