The limited edition model was restricted to only 500 units and as it turns out, all 500 have been sold within 48 hours! Customers had to go through Ford’s Facebook page in order to book their limited edition EcoSport.

Speaking to Indian Autos Blog at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, Mr. Gaetano Thorel, Vice-President Marketing, Ford of Europe, said –

EcoSport is a great car…It’s really one of the magic of the One Ford strategy. We just announced the EcoSport last thursday at the IFA Berlin (September 5th, 2013) with this 500 units limited edition with the AppLink and it could be ordered only through Facebook. And in 48 hours, finished! All reserved! So the potential is huge.
