Ford moving small car production to Mexico

(CNN) - Automobile manufacturer Ford will completely phase out production of small cars in the United States within the next two years.

A Ford spokesperson said production of the Ford Focus and C-Max, the only small cars the automaker still assembles in the U.S., will be moved to Mexico. Ford had previously announced the opening of a new plant in Mexico that would employ 28,000 workers.

After Focus production moves to Mexico, Ford will move the production of other vehicles into Wayne, Michigan, where the Focus is currently made.

The automaker said the new Mexican plant will not result in any U.S. job losses.
