In an interesting and surprising development, Ford has shot us an invite mailer asking us to reserve it for an event which will mark a ‘Global Announcement’ from Ford India.
Now, had that ‘Global’ word not been present, we would have taken it as the possible launch of the upcoming and expected Ford Fiesta facelift which will be ushered in our market soon. However, if not the Fiesta facelift then what is Ford planning to announce is the question now.
It may be something very basic like some brand initiative or it may be some global unveiling. According to what we can understand, the 3rd February Ford event may be about the following 3 cars:
- Unveil/launch of Next-Gen Figo/Ka which is codenamed as B562
- Unveil/Launch of B562 based compact sedan
- Unveil/Launch of Next-Gen Endeavour
Ford has already showcased the new Ka internationally and it will be unveiled in India at the Auto Expo is what we know. So, that takes us to the possibility of the global unveiling of either the sub 4-meter compact sedan based on the B562 or the next-gen Endeavour.
The event will take place in Delhi and needless to say we will cover it up from ground zero. Till then, we nitpick smaller bits and go on hunting about the reason. Keep tuned!
