President Iohannis tests new Ford EcoSport SUV

 •  English

President Klaus Iohannis tested on Thursday the new Ford EcoSport SUV, with national rally champion Simone Tempestini by his side, as co-pilot.

"The test was very good. We took a racetrack lap with the new Ford EcoSport car and for this class I find it has excellent features, its performance is really good. I think it will sell well," Iohannis said after test drive.

Asked whether he wishes to purchase the new Ford model, he replied that he would analyse this matter with his wife.

"For me, it is a discussion. You see that I usually sit in the back of the car and this is why I sometimes like to take the driver's seat. (...) I will consider the matter," Iohannis said.

The head of state participated in the launching ceremony of the new Ford EcoSport model at the Ford Plant in Craiova. Attending the event were also Prime Minister Mihai Tudose and the U.S. Ambassador to Romania, Hans Klemm. The event took place in the presence of several thousand employees of the Ford Plant in Craiova.

After the speech delivered on the occasion, the head of state took a drive test with an orange EcoSport car. AGERPRES (RO — author: Florentina Peia, editor: Marius Fratila; EN author: Simona Iacob, editor: Simona Klodnischi)
