Seems like Ford is planning big this year for the Indian market as the automaker is all set to launch no less than three vehicles in the country this year. The three vehicles to be launched are – the Figo compact sedan, hatchback and the new generation Endeavour SUV.
In a bid to expand its market share, the company will launch the Figo compact sedan in July, while the new generation Figo hatchback will be unveiled in September 2015. The Endeavour for the model year 2015 will roll out in the last month of the year, i.e. December.
The Figo sedan will rival the Tata Zest, Maruti DZire, Honda Amaze and Hyundai Xcent. The Figo sedan was introduced as a concept last year.
The Figo hatchback as well as the sedan will be built at Ford’s new facility to be launched in Sanand.
Unlike the two Figos, which will be home-built, the 2015 Ford Endeavour SUV will be imported from Thailand via the CKD route.
The SUV will give competition to the Toyota Fortuner, Hyundai Santa Fe, SsangYong Rexton and others in the segment.
