Ford sales drop by 31 per cent in October 2017

Ford India’s combined domestic wholesales and exports in October fell to 15,033 vehicles from 22,043 units in the same month last year. This accounts for a year-on-year drop of 31 per cent.

The American carmaker’s domestic wholesales in October 2017 stood at 4,218 vehicles, as against 7,508 units in October 2016, thus plummeting by 43 per cent. Meanwhile, the exports dropped by 25 per cent as the carmaker exported 10,815 units last month compared to the 14,535 vehicles last year.

Anurag Mehrotra, president and managing director, Ford India, commenting on the drop in sales, said, “The ramp up for new model introduction has impacted our wholesale for October. We are excited to have the all-new EcoSport to be on the side of the Indian customers very soon.”

The EcoSport has always been the highest selling model in the Ford line-up. To be launched on 9 November, the new EcoSport has a revamped design, new interiors and debuts the all-new Dragon petrol engine in India. Ford will commence an exclusive booking of the compact crossover through Amazon on 5 November. To read about our first drive impressions of the new EcoSport, click here.
