  Ford Telstar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ford Telstar was a family car sold by the Ford Motor Company in Asia, Australasia and Africa, comparable in size to the European Ford Sierra and the US Ford Tempo.
The Telstar was dropped by Ford of Japan in 1999, as the company sought to differentiate itself from Mazda by concentrating on European and US Ford models.
Local assembly of the Telstar was short-lived, and for a while the model was almost replaced by the Ford Corsair, which was simply a facelifted version of the Nissan Pintara, as the two companies were sharing models under the Button Plan.

 Ford Laser - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ford Laser is, in fact, a restyled version of the 323 produced by Mazda in Japan since 1980.
Ford New Zealand continued to assemble the Laser locally until 1997, and the range included the old station wagon model, discontinued in other markets in 1989, until it was replaced by the Escort.
The Ford Laser was also assembled and sold in some countries in Latin America such as Colombia and Venezuela, and sold in right hand drive markets in the Caribbean such as Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.

 Ford Motor Company - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ford Motor Company has denied allegations that they profited by the use of forced labor to produce tanks for the Nazis during the war, saying that Ford had lost control of the German division by that point in the war and was not responsible for its activities.
Ford came to India in 1998 with its Ford Escort model, which was later replaced by locally produced Ford Ikon in 2001.
Ford was also one of the first top industry executives to make regular use of an battery electric vehicle, a Ford Ranger EV, while the company contracted with the U. Postal Service for delivery of a large number of electric postal vans based on the Ranger EV platform.

 Ford_Mondeo
The Mondeo is produced at Ford's European plants in Germany and Belgium, as a sedan (saloon), a 5-door hatchback or a wagon (estate).
In response to Ford's claim that it was a 'world car', Ford dealers retorted 'What world was it designed for?' The Contour and Mystique proved unpopular with US buyers, who preferred the larger local models, the Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable, and both the Contour and the Mystique were dropped in 2000.
Ford Australia has withdrawn completely from the medium-sized segment of the Australian market, arguing that it is in decline.

Ford became a publicly-traded corporation in 1955; however, the Ford family still maintains a controlling interest in the company.
Increasingly, Ford Motor Corporation has looked to Ford of Europe for its 'world cars', such as the Mondeo, Focus, and Fiesta, although sales of European-sourced Fords in the US have been disappointing, and in Asia, models from Europe are not as competitively priced as Japanese-built rivals, nor are they perceived as reliable.
Ford in South Africa traditionally sourced its models from the UK and Australia, with local versions of the Ford Cortina including the XR6, with a 3.0 V6 engine, and a Cortina 'bakkie' or pick-up, which was exported to the UK.

 Articles - Ford Sierra   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Ford found that customers were more attached to the idea of a separate boot than they had thought, and this was then again addressed in 1987 by launching a Saloon version of the Sierra.
Samcor, which assembled Ford models under license after Ford had divested from the country, was already assembling the smaller Laser and Meteor, alongside the Mazda 323, on which they were based, as well as an earlier version of the Mazda 626.
Ford's badge engineering of Mazdas proved less successful in South Africa than in other markets, and the Telstar was replaced by the Mondeo in 1998.

Ford had access to the Mazda range, and the 1986 Tracer was an early example of taking the Mazda 323 and the body designed for the 1985 Asia–Pacific Ford Laser, building them in Mexico.
Ford of Europe could sell it across the Atlantic: a 15-month, $300 million investment that could be recouped, even as a niche product, because it faces very little competition apart from the 2005 Golf GTI.
Ford's the one doing retro (the daft Living Legends programme), so by right Mercury should try to signal to us, since it won't have as ageing a US line-up as the blue oval by 2005 if we had our way, that it's thrusting toward the future, calming dealers.

Largely forgotten in the Australian performance scene is the 108kW Mazda-developed F2 turbo 2.2-litre as found in GD 626/MX-6 turbo and the late Ford TX5 Turbo.
One engine to go half way was the F2 2.2 litre transverse turbo engine, an optional fitment to the MX-6/Capella/626 (it was also re-badged as a Ford Telstar in Australia).
Using a SOHC but 3 valves per cylinder, the air-to-air intercooled turbo engine could push out up to 108kW at 6000 rpm - so long as high octane fuel was being used.
