New Focus pre-premiere in Bulgaria even before the start of production
SOFIA, September 8, 2014 – An exclusive pre-premiere of the new Focus in Bulgaria took place today at Moto-Pfohe. Home media and customers were among the first in the world to be able to see the new Focus, exposed at Ford’s showroom even before its official start of production in mid-September.
Exclusively for the most eager and loyal fans of the brand, media and customers, Moto-Pfohe managed to deliver one of the few pre-production units of the 2012 and 2013 world best-selling model.
