Like most automakers doing business in the Old World, Ford  (NYSE: F  ) has had a rough time in Europe in recent years. Deep recessions in major European markets have driven new-car sales to lows not seen in decades. Ford lost over $1.7 billion in Europe last year -- bad enough that Ford CEO Alan Mulally launched a full-scale restructuring for Ford Europe last fall.

Ford says the losses won't end until 2015, but things have been getting better as those restructuring moves have started to bear fruit. Now, as Motley Fool contributor John Rosevear explains in this video, Ford's turnaround might be getting some help -- auto sales in Europe are finally, slowly, on the rise.

This little-known auto company could be huge -- soon
An under-the-radar auto company has giants like Ford, GM, and Toyota clamoring for access to its revolutionary technology. Many forward-thinking car enthusiasts are plowing money into this little-known stock... because they know it holds a key to the explosive profit power of the coming "no choice fuel revolution." Luckily, there's still time for you to get on board if you act quickly. All the details are inside an exclusive report from The Motley Fool. Click here for the full story!
