Good start for Mondeo.

January 2 – In less than one month after being launched in Chinese, Ford Mondeo Zhisheng has sold 6,000 vehicles in Chinese market, a pretty satisfactory sales record for a newly launched vehicle, according to Jeffrey Shen, president of Changan Ford Mazda.

Mondeo Zhisheng produced by Changan Ford Mazda was launched in Chinese market on November 8 of 2007. The vehicle has three models: two powered by a 2.3 Liter engine and one powered by a 2.0 Liter engine. It is priced between RMB 180,000 (USD 24,644) to RMB 240,000 (USD 32,859).

In Chinese market, Mondeo Zhisheng competes with other models in upper and middle segment, like Honda Accord, Toyota Camry. These two models have already proved successful in Chinese market.

In November of 2007, Guangzhou Honda sold 10,914 Accord vehicles and Guangzhou Toyota sold 13,062 Camry vehicles.

"With 15,000 vehicles being sold out in one month, Mondeo-Zhisheng soon becomes a hot-selling model since it was launched in European market in June 2007,” Shen said. “With a stretched wheelbase, which is designed particularly for Chinese consumers, we expect it to have strong showing in Chinese market.”

In the first 11 months of 2007, Changan Ford Mazda sold 186,522 vehicles, ranking 9th biggest auto seller in Chinese market.

Massive discount on the new Mondeo in China.

June 10th, 2008 - Ford have given the new Mondeo a massive price cut in China to make it ‘more competitive’ with its rivals. The price cut, a massive 20,500rmb (Honestly, one of the biggest we’ve ever seen) will take the base model 2.3l manual Mondeo to a bargain 170,480rmb, the base model 2.0l version will reach the mid 150,000rmb range. The 2.3 automatic gearbox model doesnt have as big as price cut, but will be cut in price by 15,000rmb.

The price cuts put the gigantic new Mondeo in direct competition with the similar priced VW Magotan, Passat, and the new Mazda 6. The price cut could also have been due to the fact that May sales of large cars were down an amazing 50% for that month alone, and many other brands have been forced for cut prices.
