Ford Shanghai Showroom

American automotive giant Ford has expanded its design centre in Shanghai to include a clay modelling studio and showroom 

Ford has opened a new design centre in downtown Shanghai, underlining the US automotive giant’s commitment to what it calls its ‘China 2.0’ strategy. The new facility extends its existing design studio to encompass a in-house clay model workshop and showroom. 

Focusing on vehicles aimed at the Chinese market – the OEM recently unveiled the new Mondeo at the centre – the new facility includes exterior, interior and colour and materials design; digital experience design; design strategy; digital modelling; design engineering; and clay modelling, milling and fabrication.
