The Ford EcoSport is a subcompact crossover SUV, originally built in Brazil by Ford Brazil since 2003, at theCamaçari plant. A second-generation concept model was launched in 2012, intended to be also assembled in new factories in India, Vietnam and Russia.
The first-generation EcoSport was designed by the Ford-US Truck Vehicle Center (program code BV226) and was based on the Cologne-built European Fiesta. Because of this, the project used the Ford B3 platform.
The EcoSport became one of Ford’s best-seller models in Brazil(consistently appearing on the 20 best-selling vehicles), Argentina,Venezuela, and Mexico. Its main competitors were the Fiat Palio Weekend Adventure and Volkswagen CrossFox. The EcoSport sold well and in 2011 sales reached 700,000.
The EcoSport was available with five inline-four engines:
- Zetec-Rocam 1.0 L gasoline 8v supercharged, 95 PS (70 kW) (discontinued in 2006)
- Zetec-Rocam 1.6 8v gasoline/ethanol, 111 PS (82 kW)
- Duratec 2.0 L gasoline 16v 145 PS (107 kW)
- Duratorq 1.4 L TDCi Diesel, 68 PS (50 kW) (export only)
All models have front-wheel drive with manual transmission as standard. The 2.0 L model can also receive a four-speed automatic transmission or four-wheel drive. In the latter case, an electronically controlled system lets the driver engage the rear axle from the dashboard.
The second generation of the EcoSport was developed under Ford’s global product development process. It was based on the 2011 Ford Fiesta B2E platform and it was launched globally. The second generation EcoSport was first showcased as a concept at the 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo, in India on 4 January 2012. The car was launched in Brazil on 14 July 2012 at a starting price of 53,490 Brazilian real.
Ford showcased the production variant of the Ford EcoSport in China, where the SUV was slated to launch on March 19, 2013. In addition to China, the SUV is also be manufactured at Ford India’s Chennai plant, for domestic sale and export to the European market. Ford’s Rayong plant inThailand manufactures the EcoSport for Southeast Asian markets. The Ecosport stands in direct competition with the Renault Duster & Nissan Terrano. As of August 2015, Ford’s Indian plant had already sold 200,000 EcoSports; 112,000 of which were sold in India while the rest were exported to South Africa, Taiwan, Japan, Australia and Europe.
