Ford Figo exports to begin soon

Naveen

Naveen Nallappan,

Hi. I am Naveen, a very simple person with few needs and greats aspirations hoping to make a dent in the world I came to be in. I have always been extremely passionate about anything with wheels and wings and I seem to have a good appreciation of how cars work technically and how the car business works. As far as my love for cars go, more than power, speed and acceleration, I love how perfectly cars have come to fit into our lives and how beautiful moments in life are spent in cars. That’s my brief introduction. Stay tuned to IAB! Drive safe, advocate safe driving!

ford figo

Ford India has struck gold with the Figo which is managing 6,000-7,000units a month. Since the Ford Figo’s launch, it has sold more than 17,000 units.

Ford had recently began engine exports form it Chennai plant to Thailand and South Africa. Soon after Ford has considerably cleared the delivery backlog of the Figo, Ford would begin exports of the Figo. The first overseas market for the Figo would be South Africa.

Ford would also be exporting the Figo to other Asian markets.

Michael Boneham, President and MD, Ford India in an interview with Rediff –

The Ford story is not about supporting the domestic market, but overseas too. I am excited. In the very near future, we will be sending the first load of Figos to South Africa. That is the first overseas market. In the next 3-4 weeks, we will announce the names of other markets where Figo will be going. They are mainly in the Asia Pacific and Africa region and a couple of other areas as well.

Boneham indicates the company would not be solely concentrating on the small car segment. Depending upon the market growth and response Ford India could launch new products.

Ford India’s future vehicles –

> European Ford Fiesta sedan

> Ford mini-SUV, sub-10 lakhs, based on the Figo

> Ford Endeavour next gen

> Ford compact MPV

> Ford Focus
