Ford managed to sell 6,149 vehicles in June 2017. June domestic wholesales came down to 6,149 vehicles, as against 9,469 units, while exports grew to 14,679 vehicles compared to 10,285 units in June of last year.
Ford India’s combined domestic wholesales and exports in June reached 20,828 vehicles from 19,754 vehicles in the corresponding month last year.
The low sales numbers could be mainly due to customers waiting for price announcements post GST.
Ford EcoSport was the main sales driver followed by Aspire sedan.
“GST is a step in the right direction, and expected to strengthen economic growth,” said Anurag Mehrotra, managing director, Ford India. “Leading up to this biggest tax reform, the month of June saw moderated wholesales as the industry looked to protect itself from the possible impact.”
Continuing to stimulate demand with its pre-owned business vertical, Ford Assured, the company announced the milestone of 200th Showroom outlets in India – with Galaxy Ford in Bhopal.
Ford launched the Sports edition of Figo & Aspire in April. The company is also working on the EcoSport facelift and the launch is expected to happen post August 2017 as per our sources.
