    The new Ford Mustang is expected in Ireland in 2015

    The Ford Mustang is finally making its way to Europe, for the first time in its 50 year history.

    Unveiling the new model, Ford announced that it’s expected in Ireland in early 2015.

    A choice of engines will be available, including a fuel efficient 2.3 litre Ecoboost engine and a 5.0litre V8.

    Both Fastback and convertible variants will be on offer, which Ford says ‘promise world-class levels of performance and refinement with sleek design that retains iconic Mustang design elements’.

    Further details will be announced closer to launch.

    Meanwhile, the car company also revealed details of its Ford Edge Concept and Ford Ka Concept.

    Ford describes the Edge Concept SUV as having a ‘sleek exterior design that communicates athleticism, confidence and capability’, with a premium interior ‘surpassing segment expectations’.

    Advanced automated driving technologies, such as obstacle avoidance systems and self parking will also feature. Both are currently under development.

    Meanwhile, the company unveiled its ‘vision for a practical choice for urban drivers’ with the new Ford Ka concept.

    It said the fuel efficient city car will feature advanced technologies usually only found in bigger cars, including a MyFord Dock for storing, mounting and charging phones and satnavs, as well as the Ford SYNC in car connectivity system.

    Revealing details of all three models at the Go Further event, Ford executive vice president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Stephen Odell said: ‘Despite the challenging market conditions, Ford continues to heavily invest in new products in Europe to position the company for success in the future.

    ‘The introduction of Mustang and the Edge Concept and Ka Concept are proof of our commitment to building our line-up with exciting new vehicles.’
