Joe Hinrichs, Ford's group vice president for Asia Pacific and Africa operations said while talking to media that the sales of the company has gone up majorly in Asia because of strong demand in this region that has gone up majorly in India.

He revealed that within 100 days 25,000 bookings were done and there is more demand for its cars than it can meet.

Most of demand is for Fio which came to India in March. He added that the buzz created by it can be understood from the fact that as soon it touched the market other cars started comparing themselves with it.

India is a market with market of 3 million light vehicles and despite price increase there seems to be no fall.
