What is your source for this news? If it's true, it shouldn't be surprising. Maybe it will be made on order. If it's true then this thread should be merged with the thread on out of production models in India!

Default just a rumour

Nope...its a rumour....confirmed this from the dealers in various cities ( Gurgaon, Nagpur, B'lore, Chennai, Kolkata & Hyd)..Fusion basic model will not be available from the next few months..the Fusion+ will be the only petrol variant available...reconfirmed with the Ford Cust care...

all the dealers have confirmed that a diesel version of Fusion is ultimately going to be launched in India towards the end of 06 or starting of 07.

But the Fusion is on....

BTW, I went to the yard of my ford dealer in Hyd....he has got a fresh stock of 7 fusions (I chose one for mine ). He also told me that the sales have picked up.. ofcourse, relatively

Yesterday I had been to Fird dealer in Hyd. He didn't mention anything about end of production for Fusion. But there are heavy discounts on the car. I think it summed up to more than 1.5 lakhs.

Awesome? What about the early buyers who coughed up that extra 1.5 lacs and made to look like jokers?

Is Ford trying to get empty its stocks or was the profit margin that high per car?

We will never know

I asked the Ford dealer in Noida and he told me that they are hardly selling any Fusion. The reason is that large no. of people are not like its concept.

He was also offering a discount of a little more that 1.5 lac

1.5 Lakh discount makes Fusion a steal

It's not a bad car - just couldn't catch people's mindset.

Regarding those who paid Rs 1.5 lakh more - well, that happens in every product, not just cars.

That's why usually it is better to wait sometime and buy when the time is right....

good on ya mate ... congrax ... how much is it costing you OTR ?? seems like a steal with the current levels of discounts. its a good quality product.

i don't think its gonna be discontinues anytime soon ... the diesel variant with 'small car' discounts will make it attractive

you'll enjoy the car man
cheers !!

I think I read in Autocar that Ford is now trying to reduce the length and lower the engine capacity to be within the latest excise norms to reduce the price of the Fusion.
