The automotive segment have been witnessing a challenging situation due to low sales resulting mainly due to hike in petrol prices, high interest rates and a few other factors also contributing towards the slow down. However, the company is aiming at developing low cost fuel efficient cars for the Indian buyers. Ford EcoSport compact SUV which was displayed at the 2012 Auto Expo in the month of January in New Delhi is also undergoing some final developments before it is launched in the Indian car market.
