Ford's sales in India have increased 9.5 percent to 84,469 vehicles in the fiscal year that ended on March 31, pushing up its market share to 3.4 percent from 2.9 percent a year ago, industry data showed.
"Within the next 18-20 months we plan to launch four new models in India," Nigel Harris, president of Ford India, said in an interview. He declined to elaborate.
Ford had said in 2010 it would launch 8 vehicle models, based on its global car platforms, in India by the end of 2015, a target the company is unlikely to meet due to the economic slowdown and sluggish car sales in Asia's third-largest economy.
"We will be close to that, but couple of the models will be deferred by a couple of years," said Harris.
