Ford India Executive Director (Marketing, Sales and Service) Vinay Piparsania said: "There are several indicators to suggest a gradual revival in customer sentiment in the past few months, including cues from the stock market and a steady improvement in manufacturing index."

He added: "As we approach the festive season, we expect a significant increase in footfalls at Ford showrooms across the country.

"We have improved supplies to expedite deliveries for all our models, including the bestselling EcoSport, to meet the expected rise in demand in the coming months."
