Srinagar- In a glittering ceremony, Auto Wings Ford—an authorized dealer of Ford India Pvt Ltd—launched the Ford’s special edition of ECOSPORTS SE at its corporate office Baghi-Hyder Hyderpora byepass on Saturday.
The car was launched by the chief guest, SDPO Azhar Rashid, along with Ashiq Hussain Wani, Managing Director Auto Wings Ford Pvt Ltd, Azhar Majid Mir, Director, Auto Wings Ford Pvt Ltd, in presence of top management and huge gathering of customers and dignitaries.
Speaking on the occasion, Younis Bashir, General Manager Auto Wings Ford Pvt Ltd, said, “We are extremely delighted by the launch of Ford EcoSport SE which is special edition of Ford Ecosports, as Ford EcoSport is one of the most popular compact SUVs we have in India.”
The special edition comes with the upgraded features. It is available in both petrol and diesel engine options.
“As we have always seen the EcoSport with its signature tailgate-mounted spare wheel, however, there is no spare wheel at all in the EcoSport SE. Also, the rear bumper has a dual-tone finish. The customers will get a tyre puncture repair kit with the new variant as well,” Younis Bashir said.
