But I don't buy that. Back in 2008 the new Fiesta was available in croatia 3 months after it was available in germany, so I guess new focus will be available in LATE 2010 in croatia even I guess you can order one from october...but it's possible to be available in germany from october...
I don't think Autoklub info is correct as far as the car being available. But I do think October is when Saarlouis Assembly Plant will begin to run the line or begin ramping up for the 2012 Focus. Both North American and Europe Ford executives are still stating that the 2012 Focus will begin production "early" January 2011.

My feeling is that the transition from Wayne Assembly Plant to the new Michigan Assembly Plant got behind schedule, hence missing the November 29 time line and making January 3 the at the moment target date.
December being a non productive month with the Christmas holidays etc is not a time to plan a Job 1 start up.

Ummm. No. Don't want the current EU C307 Focus, don't even want the new global focus. The only Focus I'm interested in is the hi-perf model a few years down the road, and I don't want it, until it is extensively driven, hence the "drive and buy kinda guy" comment in a previous post.

2012 Focus

Tried to find the original 2012 Focus thread but it appear to be buried past the 6 pages

Anyway if anyone is still interested in the nex gen Focus
just read an update regarding new dates for order bank open now Nov.08,2010 and first schedule production now Jan.31,2011




throw a pic in just in case you all don't remember what it looks like



Source http://www.us.leaseplan.com/web/lpus...hy-864mu2?open

And another bit of info for those still interested the offical production Focus
"Launch at Paris Show at 9.15am on 30 September 2010"
and also the ST model

BTW is there anyway of resurrecting/restore the original 2012 Focus thread or has it gone up in smoke?

I sure hope that leaseplan is wrong. The production start date keeps getting pushed back for some reason...that's unfortunate. Ford communications continue to say production starts at the end of this year, though. They really need to get this car out ASAP!

It doesn't trouble me if they push the production start date back a little, so long as pre-production testing is catching any glitches.

Agreed. I know they started manufacturing pre-production 2012 Focus models back in July. I'm sure by doing this they will make sure everything is right before being shipped to dealers.
