Ford India managed a combined domestic sales and exports of 22,535 vehicles in January compared to 14,259 units in the same month in 2017. Thus registering a cumulative growth of an impressive 58 per cent.
The domestic sales grew by 18 per cent when the American carmaker sold 9,450 vehicles in January, up from 7,995 vehicles in the same month last year. The exports, on the other hand, stood at 13,253 vehicles up from 6,264 vehicles in January 2017.
Anurag Mehrotra, president and managing director, Ford India, commenting on the sales growth, said, “The all-new Ford EcoSport continues to receive encouraging response from the customers. Complemented with other products in our portfolio, the momentum is helping us post consistent double-digit growth. Exports are continuing to grow at a steady pace as well with the addition of new global markets. We recently started exporting the all-new EcoSport to North America.”
The Blue Oval launched the all-new Freestyle UV in January. The new global product is positioned below the EcoSport and is based on the Figo hatch. To be launched in the country in April, the Freestyle will also be exported to international markets. In January, the Endeavour also received a panoramic sunroof in the 2.2L Titanium variant.
