Donald Trump wants Ford to build Focus Active in U.S.

According to President Donald Trump, Ford should build the Focus Active in the United States now that the American automaker has decided not to import it from China.

That decision is apparently motivated by current and future U.S. tariffs that would make the vehicle too expensive for North America.

The President’s rather simple solution hasn’t convinced Ford who believes building it in the U.S. would still make it too expensive to sell in North America. Therefore, Ford has decided that they simply won’t sell the Focus Active here.

“It would not be profitable to build the Focus Active in the U.S. given an expected annual sales volume of fewer than 50,000 units and its competitive segment. Ford is proud to employ more U.S. hourly workers and build more vehicles in the U.S. than any other automaker.”

So there you go. No Ford Focus Active in North America.
