Ford Cars – Among the Top Selling cars in India
01 May 2014
Ford India is the Indian arm of the US auto giant, Ford Motors. The company was founded in 1996 and since then, it has produced many cars that have given the Indian car lovers a wonderful riding experience. Most of the Ford cars are best sellers not only in India, but also all over the world.
Interestingly, the American automaker entered India with Ford Escort and then followed it with its iconic car, Ford Ikon. It was a top performer and remained a best seller all along its lifetime, until it was withdrawn from the market in 2010 after doing very well in the Indian car market. Ford Ikon was one of the most loved cars of all time. Other Ford cars like the Mondeo and Fusion also did well in India. In fact, the Ford Fusion was a best seller Sand it is reported that Ford is thinking about bringing it back into the market.
Of the other models that Ford introduced in India, Ford Classic was also a top-selling car. It was considered as one of the best cars of that time and it did well in India.
In the SUV segment, Ford Endeavour was a top seller until the segment was flooded with several cars from the rivals, most of which were cheaper than the Endeavour. However, the car is still available in the market, which is a testimonial of its popularity.
Other models like the Ford Fiesta and Figo are small cars, which have been in the market for some time now. Launched in 2011, the hatchback, Figo, has done better in the Indian market than the super mini, Fiesta. Although both cannot be termed as best sellers, they did well in India.
However, it is the SUV, EcoSport, which can be really called a top seller as far as Ford India is concerned. This stylish beast from the Ford has beaten all records and has won all the best car titles in India. The EcoSport has seen such a marvelous opening and popularity that Ford had to increase the production capacity to meet the surging demand for this Ford EcoSport SUV. The one car turned things around for Ford in India is, undoubtedly, the EcoSport.
It is such a big winner that based on the sole performance of the EcoSport, Ford has revived its prospects in India.
