“The year 2017 saw the Indian automotive industry overcome challenges precipitated by the implementation of GST, increased inflation, after-effects of demonetization, rising crude prices and volatile regulatory environment to register growth,” said Anurag Mehrotra, president & managing director, Ford India.

“At Ford, we remain committed to India as one of our most important markets, and are focused on the strategic pillars like strong brand, right products, competitive cost and effective scale, to build a profitable business.”

Ford’s efforts on delivering differentiated customer experience and surprisingly affordable service cost continue to win customers. The introduction of several industry-first service initiatives such as service price promise and parts price promise are enabling Ford customers to know the exact costs of routine repairs, parts, and maintenance, even before they walk into a dealership.
