Ford India more than doubled its sales in May, selling 12,288 vehicles in combined domestic wholesales and exports, compared with 5,993 units sold in the corresponding period last year. The increase was largely the result of strong exports.
The company exported 6,235 vehicles, against 1,991 units in the corresponding period last year.
Domestic sales stood at 6,053 vehicles in May, up 51 percent from 4,002 vehicles.
“We would look forward to the new government undertaking measures such as introduction of GST, rationalization of taxes and encourage foreign investment to promote sustained growth of the economy and the automotive sector,” said Vinay Piparsania, executive director of Marketing, Sales and Service at Ford India.
In May, Ford India reopened bookings for all variants of the award-winning all-new Ford EcoSport compact urban SUV.
“With over 50,000 units of the EcoSport delivered, we have significantly reduced the waiting period and are pleased to extend the opportunity to book the Ford EcoSport to more customers,” added Piparsania.
Ford EcoSport has been a big success for the company, and is seen as driving most of its sales.
