Ford is planning to launch the Ford Mondeo in India in July according to industry sources. The move would reinforce Ford's position in the Indian car market and expand the upper medium segment. It also marks a further extension to Ford's global volume on the generic CD132 platform, upon which the Mondeo is built. In Europe, the latest version of the Mondeo model was launched in the final quarter of 2000. The Mondeo will be imported to India completely knocked-down (CKD) form. It is likely that the car will be launched in a two-litre diesel engine version initially, with a petrol model introduced later
