Ford posted another huge sales gain in China in August, with the Focus leading the way. Now comes another hot Ford, as China gets its own version of the Fusion.

Ford (F -2.78%) rolled out the new Mondeo sedan to its Chinese dealers last week. As you can tell from the photo, the Mondeo is Ford's Fusion with a few small tweaks -- and Ford has high hopes for its mid-sized mainstay.

Ford's hopes aren't likely to be misplaced. Its Focus is already one of China's best-selling cars -- and sales were up big, once again, in August. In this video, Fool contributor John Rosevear shares the latest on Ford's efforts in China -- and looks at why Ford's current product formula is playing so well with Chinese car buyers.
