That means the company will no longer sell the Fusion midsize vehicle, Taurus large auto, Focus compact and Fiesta subcompact in the region as the market continues a dramatic shift toward trucks and SUVs. To date, the company has been testing its self-driving technology on its Fusion sedan cars, but Fordtold Quartz that it plans to develop an entirely new vehicle, unlike anything it's released to date, for when it starts producing autonomous vehicles for consumers-which the company says it'll be ready to do in 2021.

We won't be getting any of these in the future, according to Ford. The company previously predicted $14 billion in cuts by 2022.
He said the company will cut $5 billion from capital spending from 2019 to 2022, reducing it from $34 billion to $29 billion. He said the company used "hard work" to find more efficiencies after Hackett unveiled the plan in October.
