Ford India has registered more than 36% growth in the month of May. Total sales of the company, including domestic sales and exports, stood at 23,503 units. Sales number in the same month last year was 17,279 vehicles. May domestic wholesales stood at 6,742 vehicles, up from 5,780 units, while exports grew to 16,761 vehicles from 11,499 units in the same month last year.
“Midst uncertainties caused in the wake of the final notification on GST, Ford has continued to grow faster than the industry,” Anurag Mehrotra, Ford India’s newly appointed Managing Director, said.
“We remain committed to building a sustainable and profitable business in India by delivering on our four strategic pillars of Strong Brand, Right Products, Competitive Cost and Effective Scale," he added.
Another move forward for the brand last month was that it also introduced five new apps for its SYNC AppLink system. The new additions to the SYNC AppLink catalogue include music streaming service provider Hungama, news aggregator InShorts, weather forecast services provider AccuWeather, and parking locating app Pparke. Also, MapMyIndia has updated its SYNC AppLink-enabled app to include new voice and textual directions to a destination of choice.
Part of the Ford SYNC platform, AppLink is available on new Ford vehicles around the world including the entire Ford India vehicle portfolio - Ford Figo, Ford Aspire, Ford EcoSport, Ford Endeavour and Ford Mustang.
