Romanian regional newspaper Gazeta de Sud reports that Ford seems to have intensified production at its factory in Craiova, South Romania. While the plant delivered an average of five Transit Connect vehicles daily in the first months of the year, pace apparently intensifies with about 85 vehicles now produced daily, the paper reports, quoting factory sources.

Ford does not usually provide information about the pace of production in Craiova.

This week, information has emerged that Ford allegedly demanded the Romanian Government to extend by an year the contract deadlines for investments and production parameters that have to be reached at Automobile Craiova.
