This is probably for the first time that a Ford EcoSport SUV with a Maharashtra state license plate has been spotted. Ford India is scheduled to launch the EcoSport in the country soon. Once launched it will compete with Renault Duster. Ford EcoSport SUVs are a common site in Chennai, where the Ford India plant is located. It is here that the EcoSport with EcoBoost 1.0L engine will be manufactured and sold in India and exported to markets abroad.
Recently, the soon to be launched Ford EcoSport was spied at a Ford dealership in Mumbai. Having made its global debut at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo, last year, Ford EcoSport is in its final stage of India launch and is much awaited by impatient customers who want to get their hands on it once and for all. The EcoSport in the images here is a demo car, which is on display for Ford customers in Mumbai, reports Team-BHP. The Indian EcoSport will be available to customers with a choice of two petrol engines and one diesel engine. The 1.0L Ecoboost engine is one of the two options for those opting for petrol based variants. The other petrol and diesel engine are based on a 1.5 Liter engine that powers the Ford Fiesta.
