Default Re: Ford EcoSport facelift launched at Rs. 6.79 lakh

I'm the odd guy out but I'd seriously consider one of those with the spare where it belongs in a hatchback (inside the boot and yes, Ecosport is a hatchback). SUV pretensions be damned, I'd take the convenient option any day.

P.S. Isn't this spare-in-the-boot version already available in some export markets?

Sales figures for June 2016 from NDTV's CNB

Ford's numbers increased, despite the Figo and Aspire not being popular sellers

Despite its mass market products the Figo and Figo Aspire struggling to gain momentum in their respective segments, Ford India recorded positive sales in May 2016, in both domestic and export operations. Compared to the 7979 units sold in June 2015, Ford India sold 9469 units last month registering a growth of 18.67 per cent. The companies exports grew as well last month by three times with 10,285 vehicles shipped out, as compared to 3452 units last year.

Having witnessed a slowdown in its growth momentum, the American car maker now has a revival plan in place along with an aggressive marketing strategy. The company is working to improve the trust factor among customers and kick started various schemes like the Service Price Promise and the Parts Calculator. Speaking on the positive sales for June 2016, Anurag Mehrotra, Executive Director, Marketing, Sales, and Service at Ford India said, "At Ford, we have continued to maintain a strong growth momentum thanks to our transparent and industry first service initiatives like Service Price Promise and Parts Calculator."

Adding further, he said, "The recent announcements of Seventh Pay Commission, along with the prediction of normal monsoon and scrappage policy are keeping the industry optimistic about future growth." Having launched the Endeavour this year, Ford's next launch will be the much awaited Mustang set to go on sale later this month.
