Ford India August sales rise 16 per cent, over 10,000 cars sold

Ford India announced that overall August sales rose 16 per cent year-over-year to 10,352 domestic wholesales and export units – including the 200,000th Figo – as sales momentum builds heading into the festive season.

Ford India sold 7,840 wholesale
units in the domestic market in August – an increase of 6 per cent year-on-year. The company sold 7,382 vehicles in the same month last year.

During August, Ford India also reached a significant milestone, selling its 200,000th Figo, which dealers celebrated by offering attractive benefits on the best-selling compact. The Figo is exported to 35 international markets.

"It's wonderful to see consumer sentiment improving as we approach the festive season, and we are confident we are ready to meet the growing demand for cars during this period," said Michael Boneham, President and Managing Director, Ford India.

"While market conditions have been challenging in recent months because of rising petrol prices, high inflation and rising interest rates, Ford remains focused on delivering its One Ford plan to produce fuel-efficient, safe, and fun to drive vehicles which customers want and need," he added.

Ford India's exports are up 18 per cent this year, with 16,847 units shipped since January.
