Because NZ doesn't have an automotive industry, hence no automotive tarriffs. Population has nothing to do with it. Mondeo has also substantially gone up in manufacturing costs.
Anyway, FordAus got burned and owned last time they tried the mondeo - when the mondeo was a cheaper car. "Global car", yeah right, and they killed a perfectly good "sports version" of the mazda 626, which actually got sales, allbeit the v6 didnt sell too well for unknown reasons.
