Ford B-MAX Concept

Ford B-MAX Concept

The new Ford Fiesta-based B-MAX Concept, which made its debut at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show last week, will not be coming to the United States. Why? Well, Ford already sells two versions of the Fiesta in the U.S. including the five-door hatch and the four-door sedan. The fear is that the B-MAX would hurt sales of those to models as well as the upcoming Ford C-MAX, which is due here later this year.

European sales of the B-MAX Concept will start in 2012.

Meanwhile, General Motors is planning a similar vehicle for the United States as a GMC based on the Granite Concept.

The Ford B-MAX Concept is powered by a 3-cylinder 1.0L Ford EcoBoost gasoline engine equipped with Ford’s auto-start-stop system.

    I really want it to come over here :( I am in Canada so maybe there is still a chance. Europe has all of the new small fords that are here in North America plus more. They have the fiesta, focus sedan, focus 5-door, focus estate, ka, c-max, grand c-max, and now the b-max so there is more cars that it would cut the sales of in Europe. In North America we only have the fiesta sedan&hatch, focus sedan&hatch, and the grand c-max rebadged as the c-max. I think there is room for the b-max.
