Ford starts shipping EcoSport
The much-awaited Ford EcoSport is all set to be shipped to dealers all over the country. Ford is rolling out the cars off its production line in Chennai. The car is being built in five plants all over the world – Chennai being one of them. However, there is no still no word on pricing.
“The EcoSport looks fantastic,” said Alan Mulally, president and chief executive officer, Ford. “The Chennai team, together with our supplier partners, has done an outstanding job in delivering our customers a great looking, fuel efficient, safe, compact utility vehicle with impressive functionality and connectivity.”
The car’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine has also been awarded the Engine of the Year award in the sub-1.0-litre category. “The EcoSport is a great example of Ford’s leadership in the global shift to fuel-efficient and functional utility vehicles,” said Dave Schoch, president of Ford Asia Pacific. “Utilities are helping drive our expansion throughout the region, particularly in emerging markets, where growth in the utility segments is exploding.”
