Mid-size Ford SUV design patent filed in India

Ford has also filed a design patent for the new-gen Endeavour in India.

Ford has reportedly filed a new design patent for a mid-size SUV in India. This has sparked speculations about a possible replacement for the EcoSport.

The patent image reveals a front ¬ĺ view of the SUV. It appears to be a mid-size SUV that could rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos and Maruti Grand Vitara. It has a wide hexagonal grille with three-piece LED lights, flared wheel arches and a small rear quarter glass.

There have been rumours about Ford making a return to the Indian market. A design patent for the new-gen Endeavour was filed last month. It is said that the popular SUV could be introduced as a CBU around 2025.

More recently, the carmaker trademarked the Mustang Mach-E nametag in India. The electric crossover is expected to compete with premium EVs like the Mercedes EQE, BMW iX and the Audi Q8 e-tron.

That being said, Ford has been tight-lipped about its future plans for India.
