American automobile giant, Ford has an array of products on offer in India. All these vehicles contribute significantly to the growth of Ford. The automobile giant has now declared its sales report for February, 2015.
Ford India has reported selling 5,959 vehicles in India during February, 2015. During the same month in 2014, Ford did better domestic sales, which were at 6,799 units. The American manufacturer has not managed to grow in the thriving Indian automobile market.
The American automobile giant, however, has reported growth in export of vehicles. Ford India exported 6,617 vehicles out of the country to improve their sales figure for February, 2015. In February, 2014 the manufacturer exported 5,454 vehicles from its India facility.
Anurag Mehrotra, Executive Director, Marketing, Sales and Service at Ford India, expressed, "We welcome the government's clear focus on promoting infrastructure and investment as indicated in the Union Budget. This will have an indirect effect on the growth of the automotive sector, which is one of the biggest contributors to GDP."
He further added, "We also compliment the government for outlining the roadmap for GST implementation. A concerted effort to strike a balance between economic and social indicators for growth has been outlined by the Government, which is certainly positive and encouraging."
Ford India will be launching three new products for the Indian market in 2015. The American automobile giant will introduce an all-new Endeavour SUV. They will also launch their next-generation Figo hatchback and Figo Aspire compact sedan.
