The North American based automaker Ford has recently teased its EcoSport model ahead of the 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo debut.
According to the car manufacturer, the EcoSport is an upcoming global compact SUV which will be officially presented to the public at the 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo. Ford says that the EcoSport is a concept vehicle but even so this shouldn’t be too far away from the production version. The Ford EcoSport is actually a baby Kuga / Escape, a B-Platform SUV, which is expected to be powered by a 1.0 liter turbocharged Ecoboost engine and it will be targeted initially to emerging markets, but after that the crossover will hit global markets under the One Ford global product strategy.
The Ford EcoSport might hit the market at a low price because the upcoming SUV is expected to be made on the Ford Fiesta platform, which can mean one thing: low production costs. The new Ford EcoSport will be officially presented at the 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo, but sadly this is all we know about the model for now. Ford is expected to announce more details on its EcoSport SUV like performance, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions at the upcoming automotive event.
