Ford has recently given facelift to Ford Ikon model.

The modern Ford India began production in 1998, although the roots trace back to 1907 when the Model A was launched. Its manufacturing facilities are in Maraimalai Nagar near Chennai. Ford India began production in 1926, but was shut down in 1954. Production began again with the joint venture Mahindra Ford India, Limited (MIFL) in 1995, a 50-50 venture with Mahindra & Mahindra Limited. Ford increased its interest to 72% in 1998 and renamed the company Ford India Limited.[1]

The first model was the Ford Escort, which was later replaced by locally produced Ford Ikon in 2001. It has since added Fusion, Fiesta, Mondeo, Endeavour and Endeavour Thunder+ [2] to its product line. Other models included the Ford Zetec (MIFL) and Ford Escorts (MIFL).[1]
