Ford EcoSport Concept breaks cover at the 2012 New Dehli Auto Show

Article by Christian A., on January 4, 2012

Ford unveiled the all-new EcoSport Concept at the 2012 New Dehli Auto Show in India and honestly to tell you it made quite a buzz. As expected, the new EcoSport is actually a thinly disguised future production model as Ford needs some feedback in order to know if the car will be a success. The new EcoSport Concept will replace the first-generation EcoSport model launched back in 2004 and will use the same B-segment architecture seen on the Fiesta and the B-Max.

As you can see from the photos, the new EcoSport carries the new design philosophy seen on the 2013 Ford Escape, and this means that we can see a larger lower grille as well as a rounded ‘nose’.

If the previous EcoSport model was sold only in South and Central American markets this is about to change as the new EcoSport will be sold in select markets in Asia, including both India and Thailand. Still, the new Ford EcoSport could also be sold in select European markets.

“This is a significant milestone for our global product development process,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s group vice president for global product development. “It proves that great small-car models for growth markets can be created in growth markets, using One Ford to leverage our global design and engineering expertise.” Production of the new Ford EcoSport is expected to begin by the end of 2012.
