EcoSport, Ford's compact SUV, has reached sales of 1 lakh units, including domestic as well as exports.
The American car, which was launched in India over a year ago still commands a waiting period of 2 to 4 months.
So far, it has pocketed more than 30 awards for its performance. The compact SUV's superb drivability, ruggedness, safety features and other goodies on-board made it a segment-leader in terms of sales.
Ford India officials proudly announced that over 60,000 EcoSports are running on the Indian roads, while the remaining 40,000 units were exported.
The compact SUV is produced at the company's Chennai plant and is also exported to several parts of the world, such as South Africa, Taiwan, Australia and various European countries.
Also the acceptance of a 'made in Chennai' EcoSport across the globe strengthens Ford's India operations as a hub of manufacturing activity. The EcoSport and Figo are the two main export vehicles from Ford India's portfolio.
