President and Managing Director Anurag Mehrotra said: "Improvements in GDP growth and other industry indicators continue to support the year-on-year growth of the auto industry." He further said there are headwinds in terms of impending increase in interest rates, crude prices, and inflation.

Ford India expanded its sales and service footprint in February with the inauguration two new sales and service outlets in Dehradun and Hyderabad, respectively.

The company also announced its decision to raise prices of all its vehicles by up to 4 per cent from March 1, 2018, after the government's decision to increase import duty on auto components.
