MADRID: Ford is considering making a new sports-utility vehicle (SUV) at its plant in Valencia in Spain, the company said on Thursday.

“We are closely monitoring the evolution of the European markets for opportunities to enhance our current product offering,” the group said.

“Given the changes we see in the industry, we believe there is an opportunity to add an all-new multi-energy SUV to the Europe cycle plan, to be manufactured in Valencia.” The group said this was still subject to a formal decision.

Spanish newspaper Cinco Dias first reported that Ford was weighing production of a new passenger car at the Almussafes plant in Valencia.

“Great news for Valencia, Spain and the workers of @FordSpain. The company’s decision to produce electric vehicles guarantees the viability of the Almussafes plant for the coming years,” Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said in a message on X.
