After suffering declining sales figures over last couple of years, Ford has stopped taking orders for its Edge SUVs.
This latest decision from the company comes as it had sold less than 1,700 SUV in the UK during course of the year which represents more than 50 percent drop from previous year for the same time period. However, the company will continue to sell the SUV in other European markets as long as the stocks last.
In an official statement the company said, “The decision to limit Edge availability to seven key markets is in line with our strategy aimed at strengthening the Ford brand and creating a sustainably profitable business in Europe, including by taking action to improve or exit less profitable vehicle lines.”
This latest news comes after the company announced that it will be cutting around 7,000 jobs worldwide as part of an ongoing restructuring process within the company. Reports have suggested that the company is planning on introducing a number of new vehicles by next year as it moves towards EVs in the coming years.
