The new Ford EcoSport is scheduled for a launch on the 9th of November, 2017. Ford India had previously tied up with Amazon India for bookings of 123 units which would be available exclusively for a period of 24 hours. The 123 units were available from 5th November midnight onwards. However, all the units were booked by 10 AM and exclusive bookings had to be suspended soon after.
Most customers on Amazon booked the top-end Titanium+ EcoSport variant which comes with the petrol three-cylinder 1.5-litre engine and the 6-speed automatic transmission unit. This engine churns out 123 PS and offers 17 kilometres per litre in terms of fuel economy. Customers have also expressed a clear preference for the Lightning Blue colour option. The new EcoSport may be another big success for Ford India according to Rahul Gautam, the Vice President-Marketing at the company.
