05.25.2011 By Ioana Tudor

US automaker Ford produced about 3,000 Transit Connect light commercial vehicles at its car plant in Craiova, southern Romania, in the first four months of the year, four times more than in the same interval in 2010.

All commercial vehicles produced by Ford in Romania between January and April were exported, while 15% of those manufactured in the first four months of 2010 were sold on the local market, according to the Association of Car Manufacturers and Importers (APIA).

Ford Romania will start the production of a new car model, the B-Max minivan, next year. B-Max will be produced exclusively in Romania.

At the end of March, Ford finished installing the production lines for B-Max and a new family of engines at the Craiova car plant.

The U.S. carmaker has invested EUR350 million so far in its Craiova operations.
