Karthik H, A bit of a car freak and a bike nut, and a fan of trucks and technology too. Expect sharp stories that focus on those four fronts. As always, stay tuned to IndianAutosBlog.com for quick and unassuming updates from across the world.

Ford will unveil a new global concept vehicle at the Auto Expo 2014. The concept is based on a global design philosophy but, the company says, “created to serve the specific needs of consumers in India.”

This would either have to be the near-production Ford Ka or a B-Segment sedan based on it.

The concept will showcase Ford’s vision for the future in the competitive compact-car segment in India and other emerging markets, says a release from the company.

The Ford Ka concept was shown in Brazil late last year, previewing the global replacement to the current Ka and Figo.

Ford envisages that the Asia-Pacific region would account for nearly a third of Ford’s global sales by 2015, more than doubling from the 15 percent from 2010.

Ford also expects the compact car segment to double, from around 1 million units in 2013, in just five years. Vinay Piparsania, executive director for marketing sales and service said that customers will get to experience first-hand the global products that are being created to meet and exceed their expectations.
