There is good news for the current and ex- government defence and police employees as now they can buy the highly popular compact SUV, Ford Ecosport through CSD (Canteen Stores Department) and CPC (Central Police Canteen) across the country. This step has been taken to deal with continuous rising demand for this SUV from the government officials.
Apart from the regular benefits such as exemption from tax which results in considerable amount of difference in the On-road price, Ford will also give exclusive benefits to the officials such as fast delivery of the vehicle on priority subject to the availability of variant though. The Ecosport will be Ford's fourth vehicle in India to be available at CSD and CPC as they are already selling Figo, Endeavour and Classic.
The Chennai-built Ford EcoSport already surpassed the One Lakh sales milestone in domestic wholesales and exports combined and has been one of the most successful launches by Ford in India and still continues to do great numbers. The EcoSport is available with petrol and diesel options along with automatic/manual gearbox. Prices for the Ford EcoSport start at Rs 6.5 lakh and go upto Rs 9.7 lakh for the top-end Titanium diesel opt variant. When it comes to new launches Ford has the new Figo compact sedan that will be launched next year and after the EcoSport it will be its biggest launch.
