Ebro was a Spanish manufacturer of medium and heavy trucks, buses, all-terrain vehicles and four-wheel drive tractors.


The predecessor of the Ebro brand was the Ford subsidiary founded in Spain in 1920 called “Ford Motor Co. SAE”, which initially had its headquarters in Cádiz and since 1923 in Barcelona. In 1929 the company changed its corporate name (company) to "Ford Motor Ibérica SA". Throughout the period leading up to the Second World War, cars, trucks, buses and tractors in the Ford range were assembled and sold in Spain under the Ford name.


Spanish dictator Franco, who had the support of American competitors General Motors and Chrysler, among others, but not Ford during the Spanish Civil War, pushed for a name change for the brand after the war. Since the English Fordson Thames 7V (later Fordson Thames ET and Thames Trader) was built under license at the time, the decision was made to use the Spanish river name Ebro, based on the River Thames on which the plant is located Dagenham by Ford UK. The first car received the model designation Ebro 7V. In 1954 the plant was nationalized and Ford sold its stake in Ebro Motor Ibérica. However, cooperation with Ford-UK continued until 1965.


In 1979 the E series was introduced as a successor to the Alfa Romeo licensed product.
