The Ecosport is one of the best selling cars from Ford. The company is now planning to launch the next generation hybrid variant by 2020.
The Ecosport was first showcased at the 2012 auto expo and launched in mid-2013. The company exports the Ford Ecosport from India to many other countries. The current Ecosport is powered by a 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel variant.
The company gave a minor update earlier this year, but the launch of Maruti Vitara Brezza made a tough competition for the compact SUV segment.
Ford is planning to introduce the hybrid or an electric variant of the Ecosport and is expected to be launched by 2020.
Ford is likely to get a hybrid powertrain, which will give it benefits under the FAME scheme. The all-new Ford EcoSport will continue the production in India, which is a global production hub.
