Gunnar Herrmann Interviewed Paris Motor Show - Ford C-Car Line Director
Gunnar Herrmann (Global C-Car Vehicle Line Director), the Ford Globetrotter has been responsible for the Ford Focus for three car generations (1998) and is responsible for the Ford C-segment worldwide. These cars are almost like his children, he has long seen them "big", Working with and on them knows every "screw" by name.
Robert Basic and I met up with Gunnar in the Ford Grand C-Max and let the video flip on.
Among other things, it's about the modular design on the C platform to shorten development time. I then explicitly asked how consumer-friendly this is with any repairs or damage repair. This is very important to me, that not only the development time at the car manufacturer is shortened (up to about 9 months), but also the car customer suffers no disadvantages due to higher repair costs.
He said "cool" + the i-Car
What I liked very much, he calls the child by name and says that the Ford Focus RS is "so cool". You can not describe it better if you are car-crazy. Gunnar would also build an i-car if you let him. All about it in the video!
Robert has pointed to his other interview "Ford and Social Media" in this interview, definitely watch!
