Not many know this but, the first Ford motor to dash across Indian roads, as early as 1907, was called Model A. Ford first began its operations in India in 1926. After manufacturing cars for almost 28 years, it shut shop due to running in losses.
More About Ford
Ford then made a comeback on the Indian automotive scene in 1995 and has not looked back ever since. With its investment of $2 billion in operations, the company is the 6th largest carmaker in India. Ford’s main manufacturing facility lies in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The manufacturer’s first model after returning to the Indian market was a luxury sedan by the name of Ford Escort. While it was well-known, the car was expensive for the India pocket at the time and could not contribute to the company’s mass success.
It was the Ford Ikon launched in 2001 that marked a wave of change for this manufacturer. Ford started catering to the masses with this model and became a household name soon after. Ever since then, Ford has introduced a slew of models for all segments – from hatchbacks to sedans to SUVs, they offer it all! At present, this manufacturer’s fleet in India comprises of four models, namely, Figo, Aspire, EcoSport, Endeavour and Freestyle.
Maintenance and Care
It is no secret that Ford offers quality, style, performance and affordability for all its customer segments. The five models listed above handle themselves phenomenally well, whether you are on-roading or off-roading. But, no matter how robust the vehicle, it can still fall prey to bad maintenance. Therefore, it is critical to get your Ford the quality care it needs – be it the engine health, cabin maintenance, windshield wear and tear or tyre and battery health. For example, even the best of cars can give trouble starting if its battery is on the verge of dying. Do not let things get this far; otherwise, you will be left stranded at a random location.
