“Despite a tough business environment with hike in fuel prices and ongoing high interest rates, consumer interest in Ford vehicles continues to hold steady. Our commitment and long term expansion strategy for India continue to progress according to our plan. We are committed to bringing the best of Ford products and technology to India and will be introducing several new vehicles from the ONE Ford stable to India over the next few years. To offset the prevailing tough conditions and introduce buoyancy into the market we hope the government will introduce regulatory policies that are conducive to the growth of the automotive industry. We believe that the reduction in the differential between diesel and petrol prices and recent RBI’s decision to cut repo rate are progressive steps and should continue”
