Interesting facts about the Ford Focus

The original Ford Focus rolled off the production line in July 1998 as a successor to the Ford Escort. The model was originally designed by Ford of Europe and teams of German and British automotive engineers.

The fourth-generation Ford Focus models in the UK are manufactured in Saarlouis, Germany and many variants are available. The Ford Focus has many editions ranging from smaller 2-door coupé-cabriolets up to 5-door hatchbacks.

In 2020, the Ford Focus was the fourth best-selling automobile model in the UK. However, the company has stated that it intends to cease production of all passenger vehicles, including the Ford Focus, in the American market and to only focus on pickup trucks and SUVs. It remains to be seen if Ford will continue producing newer generations of this popular little vehicle in Europe and the UK.

The Ford Focus variants available in the UK in 2021 use a number of modern technologies, including Quickclear heated windscreen and acoustic laminated windscreen technologies on all new Ford Focus editions, including the Zetec Edition, Titanium Edition, Titanium X Edition, Active Edition, Active X Edition, ST-Line Edition, ST-Line X Edition, and ST Edition.

For many decades now, Ford has used a single supplier for its glass and windscreens on its Ford Focus models and variants, Carlite (Carlex). They supply Original Equipment (OE) glass as well as aftermarket glass for the Ford Focus, and like Ford themselves recommend that customers only use OE glass for windscreen replacement.

Carlite has outlined in detail the criteria for OE glass for Ford vehicles. Note that there are many different types of windscreens for the Ford Focus, so choosing the right glass for your variant as well as the edition and age of your Ford Focus is essential.

For older Ford Focus models that do not contain ADAS sensors or advanced technologies, aftermarket glass supplied by reputable suppliers can be just as good and meet British Standards whilst costing a fraction of Carlite’s OE glass.

We recommend you choose reliable automotive glaziers here on myWindscreen that use high-quality glass, adhesives, and equipment to ensure your safety whilst saving time and money in the process.
