Ford EcoSport bookings open - launch on 26th June 2013

Ford India dealerships have started taking bookings for EcoSport. The booking amount for the same is Rs 50,000, with deliveries being made by end June or early July. Ford's EcoSport is slated for a launch on 26th June 2013.  Though, Ford India is yet to notify us on the official date and venue of the launch. Though, Ford India had on earlier occasions told that the launch is scheduled to happen in end of June 2013 - keeping this in mind, the above date of launch makes sense.

While there is no mystery to be revealed on the variants, specifications and features of the engines to be launched in EcoSport - the major cracking thing to hear on launch date would be the price of the vehicle.
