Ford's Sales in India Increase 272%

June 3, 2010
Company will begin second production shift to meet demand

Driven by the popular Figo, which maintained its position as the top seller in Ford's portfolio for the third consecutive month, Ford India's May sales rose by a record 272% from the same month a year ago to 8,080 units.

The May performance also represented an increase of 7.6% from the previous month.

To keep up with the demand that Figo is helping drive, Ford India will launch a second production shift next month at its Chennai production facility.

"We have achieved more than 20,000 bookings since launch and are happy to see more and more Ford Figos gaining visibility and presence on road," said Michael Boneham, president and managing director of Ford India.

Ford India continued to increase its nationwide dealer network during the month of May which now includes 165 outlets across 97 cities as well as its after sales service programs throughout the country to further support the Ford Figo.
