While the price of the existing model has been retained, the new EcoSport has as many as 1,600 changes and dual front air bags and ABS come as standard equipment, he added.

Ford India has however discontinued the Ecoboost petrol engine, variant of which was available in the earlier EcoSport version due to less demand.

Mehrotra also said Ford has become the largest passenger vehicles exporter from India and the products go to even advanced markets like North America and Europe.
