Ford’s chief executive officer Alan Mulally has recently revealed the automaker’s new EcoSport concept car at the 2012 Delhi Motor Show.
The eco-friendly SUV launched alongside seven other new Ford models in India by the middle of the decade. Based on Fiesta running gear, the B-platform is destined to underpin more than two million vehicles a year by 2015.
Under the hood, the vehicle is fitted with Ford’s smallest engine – a 118bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost engine that will churn out 120PS of max torque. A 1.5-litre diesel powerplant is to follow.
The production EcoSport is being built in South America under the One Ford strategy so while Delhi will be the first to receive the new model, sales will follow in South America, China, North America and possibly Europe at a later stage.
