“The festival season is coming and Ford India has a lot to celebrate,” said Michael Boneham, president and managing director, Ford India. “Despite increasing fuel prices and an increasingly challenging market, consumers continue to choose the fuel-efficient, affordable, feature-filled vehicles Ford offers, and we are close to reaching the 100,000 sales milestone for this year.”
