The new sedan will be sold in India by September, according to Overdrive, and will reach other markets. Brazil is a sure destination, once it will probably be made in the South American country, more specifically at the Sao Bernardo do Campo plant, already in charge for Ford Ka production and also in desperate need of more products. Small sedans are very popular in Brazil, what makes the Ka Sedan (the name the car may receive there) a natural choice. Low investment figures for the development of this version are also something Ford has surely taken into consideration. As we have already said, Ford has confirmed the sixth generation of Fiesta will be made in Mexico.
Brazil has a free trade agreement with this country, what allows them to exchange vehicles with no import taxes. The new Fiesta tends to be very popular in Brazil and the Ka Sedan/Ikon could also succeed with the Mexican public. Nothing seems more obvious than the swap of new Fiesta units for Ka Sedan vehicles and vice-versa. Even the date when both are expected to start production, in 2010, proves this would be a perfect cost-cutting combination, or, in other words, the best way to maximize resources and production.
