Ford to export vehicles manufactured in India to more than 50 countries

Buoyed by increasing sales of its compact car Figo in overseas markets, Ford India is planning to expand its reach to 50 countries by the end of this year or early 2012. The company is currently exporting its global car, which made its international debut in India in March 2010, to 27 countries.
“Exports has been a real joy for us. In September, we exported 2,469 cars. We are quite happy that the number is growing,” Ford India Executive Director (Marketing, Sales and Service) Nigel E Wark told PTI. Asked if the rising export numbers of Figo have encouraged the company to explore new markets, he replied in affirmative.
South Africa is our biggest market but the Middle East also offers good opportunities,” Mr. Wark said.
