Ford B-Max, Could It Come To Malaysia?

This is the first official images of the production version of the Ford B-Max MPV which is fast gaining a reputation of being one of the most innovative models in its segment. Ford CEO Alan Mullally will be unveiling the B-Max at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2012. Ford was actually one of the late ones to arrive in this segment. The B-Max replaces the existing Fusion. Ford asserts that a new benchmark is set by the B-Max with its “ingenious design and unrivalled technology.” Its highlights include the use of rear sliding doors and the removal of the B-pillars, a characteristic carried over from the concept car. In comparison, the Grand C-Max (a bigger sibling) has rear sliding doors but keeps the traditional B-pillars. Ford has resolved the technical problems that are typically related to not having B-pillars mainly side impact safety and production complexity.
The B-pillars are integrated into the sliding doors. Ford of Europe CEO Stephen Odell said that the B-Max offers a design that’s groundbreaking and has features that have only previously been offered in its bigger cars. The official technical details have yet to be announced but it’s likely that Ford will provide more information as the Geneva launch nears. The concept version was slightly longer than four meters, making it 11 cm longer than a five-door Fiesta and 32cm shorter than the bigger Focus-based C-Max. The dimensions of this production car are expected to be identical to those of the concept car. Ford asserts that the new B-Max provides a load space that’s the best in its class.
