Ford Figo Concept global compact car unveil in India: LIVE coverage
Ford India will present a new global concept today, in New Delhi. Top management officials from the headquarters of Detroit based car-maker, media from all over the globe, are all here for the big event, just like they were during the unveiling of EcoSport concept, right before the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo.
This new global concept from Ford is expected to be a compact sedan, which will be under 4 meters in length. It is built on the next gen Ford Figo platform, B562. This new platform, is much more stronger, and lighter as compared to that of the current Figo platform.
Once launched, this new Ford compact sedan will compete with the likes of Maruti DZire, Honda Amaze and the new Hyundai Grand i10 sedan, which will be launched in India tomorrow. Engine options for the new Ford compact sedan could be in the form of 1.0l EcoBoost (Ford’s award winning engine), and the 1.5l diesel.
Rush Lane too is in Delhi to cover the event. We will bring you LIVE updates and images, straight from the press event, which is scheduled to commence at 1:30 PM. After today’s unveil, the car will head to 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. Stay tuned.
