FORD DRIVES HARDER BARGAIN

FORD will be putting up the price of cars across its UK range by four per cent, it said yesterday, blaming the sustained weakness of the pound against the Euro. The price increases will begin on 1 July. “The total revenue impact of the currencies has been huge -- well into nine figures -- on Ford’s UK business,” Ford UK’s managing director Nigel Sharp said . Models like the Ka cost around £600 extra.
