Ford EcoSport is the one compact Suv everybody is eying for especially the rivals. Its been all over the news, people have seen it already, they also know the reviews, but whats the price? What is that Ford is waiting for? Well everything about Ford EcoSport will get answered when Ford India will reveal the pricing tomorrow.
Ford EcoSport is expected to launch at Rs 6.2 lakh (petrol) and Rs 7.2 lakh (diesel), if not exactly this, then Ford will be looking to price it somewhere around this price only, as they would not want to repeat the same mistake they made with the new Fiesta pricing and volumes never really took off. Ford’s dealer network also believes that Ford EcoSport petrol can be priced around Rs 6.5 lakh and Diesel for Rs 7.5 lakh. Meanwhile company had already started pre-booking the Ford EcoSport for an amount of Rs 50,000, which is refundable in a month’s time if you don’t want to purchase.

‘’The excitement and anticipation around the EcoSport is unprecedented. We are extremely gratified with the response from Indian consumers for this vehicle. The dedicated men and women of Ford India are working very hard to exceed customer expectations, and our dealers have begun accepting EcoSport bookings,’’ said Joginder Singh, president and managing director of Ford India.
