Team-BHP member Nareshkumaran A has clicked an image of a pack of Ford EcoSports from a parking lot in Chennai.
The convoy constituted of four test mules in ‘Savannah Orange’, ‘Bright Yellow’ and ‘Sea Gray’ body colors.
Two other models spotted by our reader Daniel George from Trivandrum were painted in ‘Kinetic Blue’ and ‘Chill Metallic’ and had the 1L petrol engine under the bonnet.
Besides these options, the EcoSport is presented in black and light silver body colors in Brazil. The communication color chosen in China and Brazil is the ‘Savannah Orange’ paintwork. This was the color of the Auto Expo concept as well. As India has plenty of sunshine, car makers exploit it by launching bright body colors.
The EcoSport will share paint options with the Figo and Classic. Coming to the features, most of these test mules are in the top-end ‘Titanium’ trim with features such as push-button start and steering-mounted audio controls.
Ford may want to paste QR codes on these test mules directing viewers to the Ford India website where all the features and specifications are listed. There’s not a motorist on the road that won’t take interest when these vehicles pass by as there’s nothing like this on the market.
Ford India, there’s lots of roofed parking spaces in our office building, you can secure your mules here on just one condition – if you promise to leave the keys behind!
