Details have emerged about the fate of the Ford EcoSport, which is sold in the markets of India, Brazil, the United States and Europe. According to the Detroit Free Press, after Ford curbs production in Brazil and India (from the Indian company EcoSport was supplied to the United States), sales of the model in the American market will end, and the Romanian plant in Craiova will remain the only assembly site where the compact crossover is produced.
The EcoSport remains the most compact and affordable SUV in Ford’s US lineup to date, with prices starting at $ 20,395. Ford’s Chennai plant, from where the crossovers are exported to the United States, will shut down by the end of this year, at which time supplies will stop. It is assumed that stocks in dealer warehouses will last until mid-2022, after which EcoSport will finally disappear from the North American market.
With the completion of assembly in Brazil and India, the only EcoSport plant will remain in Craiova, Romania. However, the model does not shine on the European market: in seven months of 2021, Europeans purchased only 16.2 thousand copies of EcoSport, which is 17.7 thousand less than in the same period last year.
In Ukraine, Ford EcoSport is available at a price of $ 22,000.
