We had an impressively upbeat interview with Ford Europe's British born boss this week, grilled by our automotive editor, Dave Leggett, on the sidelines of a first look (and ride, no driving) at the upcoming Mexican built Mustang Mach-E. Who'd be the head of the European arm of a Detroit based automaker? Stuart Rowley would. He's well on with a painful restructuring - bang goes the Bridgend engine plant in Wales, 12,500 jobs across Europe - but the huge losses are abating, even if the word 'profit' isn't yet in use, Brexit and EU CO2 quotas are well in hand and even the coronavirus doesn't appear to be fazing him unduly.
