Our Brazilian friends at BlogdoEcoSport managed to chase down a convoy of Ford EcoSports in Brazil and recorded the action with a video camera. The production version of the EcoSport could be revealed at Auto China in Beijing next month following which it will reach markets like India and Brazil.
Ford has withheld the date of launch of the mini SUV. Our forecast is production will begin at the Chennai plant in mid-2012.
The EcoSport will be India's first vehicle to have a turbo petrol engine in the B-Car category. An hour ago we posted the first spyshots of the car's interior, revealing its connection to the B-Max, unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this month. Ford will sell the EcoSport in 100 markets and could use the Chennai factory as an export hub once the local demand is met.
Ford showcased the concept version of the EcoSport at the Delhi Auto Expo and as learned from this spy video, the body work is very close to the concept except for the nose and chin and portions near the rear quarter glass.
This video also serves as a compilation of all the spyshots of the EcoSport we've shown you from Brazilian roads.
