Ford EcoSport, Tata Aria and Renault Duster SUV most mentioned in July 2013
In July 2013, Ford EcoSport was mentioned the most number of times online in India in the SUV category. The other popular SUV mentions were made for Tata Aria and Renault Duster. Ford Endeavour, Honda CR-V, Chevrolet Captiva ranked foremost as most vibrant nameplates.
The company at the time clearly stated, ‘Ford EcoSport “Limited Edition”* and Titanium versions will arrive in the UK in spring 2014.’ Prior to Europe launch, 120 units are bound for UK by Q1 2014 while Europe will receive the rest later. This launch delay can be attributed to the outstanding response that the compact SUV has received in India due to which Ford India has had to evaluate their export plans to cater to current backlogs.
To be exported from the Ford India plant in Chennai, EcoSport will be launched in international markets both as left hand drive and right hand drive vehicles and will be offered in all three engine options. These engine options include a 1.0-liter EcoBoost petrol, 1.5-liter Ti-VCT petrol and 1.5-liter Duratorq diesel.
