Top Gear India is reporting that the Ford EcoSport is all set for a March 4th debut in Delhi. Top Gear also goes on to say that the only reason the EcoSport has been delayed until now is that the management has been waiting for the Union Budget, too see if it had anything good or maybe something shocking, for the automotive industry.
Ford dealers say prices of the EcoSport base petrol will start at around Rs 5.99 – Rs 6.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) while the diesel could start between Rs 6.99-Rs 7.25 lakh. Ford hopes to keep prices of the top end diesel below the 10 Lakh mark for multiple reasons.
The speculation thread on Team-Bhp also has a discussion brewing on the how probable this report is, considering Top Gear hasn’t mentioned the source of the news. The discussion also involves a Facebook post by a Ford dealer in Rourkela who again mentions a 1st week of March launch.
