With the launch of new 2010 car models through an agent in Bangladesh, Ford Motor Company, a US automobile giant, has expanded its business here at a time when carmakers are facing slack sales in the wake of financial crisis worldwide. The company eyes a good share in Bangladesh’s posh car market, as its officials and others said at a function in Dhaka on Monday, organised by AG Automobiles Limited, a concern of Anwar Group that has been appointed as the US carmaker’s local seller.
AG Automobiles has already sold 68 different brands of Ford vehicles here.
This local firm will introduce a wide range of new 2010 Ford models, including Ranger Pickup, Everest SUV and Focus cars.
Commerce Minister Faruk Khan formally launched the Ford’s new version at a showroom at Uttara. Health Minister AFM Ruhal Haque, US Ambassador to Bangladesh James F Moriarty and Managing Director of Anwar Group Hossain Khaled were also present.
According to people close to the local car market, the Ford brand cars might have a good prospect, although BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Nissan along with Toyota’s latest brands are also available here.
