In expectation

Koln, 9. March 2015 – the old adage that waiting is supposed to increase desire has apparently been deeply internalized by ford in younger prasentations.

Those who want to buy can order now, but that doesn’t mean they’ll get a new car: the first new s-max won’t be delivered until september, about a year after the official trade show premiere. Meanwhile, ford has revealed how much the van will cost.

The first price list at least indicates that ford has taken a very close look at the orders placed so far.

The smallest diesel engine can not be ordered with the expensive, the most powerful diesel not in combination with basic equipment.

This is intended to slow down the youngsters at the wheel.

The schadenfreude of some parents presumably keeps until resourceful sprouts exchange the keys.
