Ford will begin production of its new small car at its Chennai plant next year, the car will be made in both sedan and hatch formats.
Ford's new small car will be inspired by the new generation Ford Fiesta, which will also enter India in the future. The hatchback will measure less than four meters in overall length to avail the small car cost advantages. Thoroughly designed and developed for Indian conditions, it might be exported to nations like Brazil in the future.
A sub 1.2-liter petrol and sub 1.5-liter diesel engine will be introduced initially; more powerful engines and an automatic transmission might be added to the lineup after the launch.
