Ford's Maverick pickup truck gets one lakh registrations 

Ford Motor Co's announced that its new Maverick truck has received over one lakh registrations. A Bloomberg report said that the demand is particularly high in the market of California that favours imports. It also informed that these reservations are nonbinding and hence doesn't require a deposit. However, Ford remains confident that these will convert into full-fledged orders as the automaker followed a similar setup to attract interest towards its electric Mustang Mach-E and its revived Bronco SUV.

Ford’s truck marketing manager Todd Eckert shared that although this is the initial step with reservations, the result till now is unbelievable. “This really has exceeded our expectations," he said in the report. Ford is making a bid for entry-level import buyers with the Maverick as its price starts under $20,000 and can give one 40 miles per gallon with the standard gasoline-electric hybrid version.
