The New Ford Ka Concept was revealed in Brazil yesterday. The Ka concept previews the next generation 2015 Ford Ka (and 2015 Ford Figo), and Ford confirms that production of the ‘sub-B compact vehicle’ will commence in 2014.

Ford does not talk much about the Ka Concept, only saying that it will offer class-leading fuel economy, a roomy interior with comfortable seating for five, best-in-class air conditioning, a central docking station for mobile devices and Ford’s SYNC multimedia system.
The company is also keen to mention that the Ka Concept is the second vehicle developed by Ford Brazil, the first vehicle being the EcoSport. Ford’s Chief Designer, Ehab Kaoud, is responsible for the Ka Concept’s design, and coincidentally, Mr. Kaoud was also the design chief for the EcoSport.
Joe Hinrichs, president of The Americas for Ford Motor Company, said –
The Ford Ka Concept is aimed at customers in growth markets who want and expect more. It will delight consumers with its sleek design, clever technology, attention-to-detail quality and superb craftsmanship. It also shows the continued importance of our South American design and engineering capabilities to serve markets around the world. It’s truly another global design and engineering milestone for Ford.
