Ford small car in India in 2010, new Endeavour in 2 weeks

US-based carmaker Ford said it will launch its new small car during the first half of next year and was planing to start exporting the product by the end of 2010.

The company said the sub-B segment car would be made to meet the statutory requirements of having an engine capacity of 1.2 litre petrol engine and 1.5 litre diesel engine.

Ford India is also going to launch a new advanced version of its SUV Endeavour within the next two weeks.
Boneham, meanwhile, said that the company has no plans to phase out its existing small car Fusion from India at present.

The company is also planning to start exporting diesel and petrol engines from its Chennai plant by early 2010.
