Ford’s August sales treble

New Delhi: Carmaker Ford India on Wednesday reported a three-fold jump in August sales at 7,925 units on the back of its latest small car Figo, which is getting a good response.

Figo has already received over 34,000 bookings in the last 25 weeks, Ford India said in a statement.

“The Figo phenomenon continues, and in addition to strong sales in India, we are excited about the opportunity to export this success to other markets around the world," Ford India president and managing director Michael Boneham said.

Following the first shipment of India-built Figo to South Africa in May, the compact car will be exported to 50 new markets including Mexico, North Africa and the Middle East from next year, the company said.

The company sells models such as the Ikon, Fiesta and Endeavour in the country.
