There are sources that are sold in mature markets as well as for emerging ones. The RSA is a mixture of such customers so Ford has something for everyone. Of course, other car companies do the same but not to the level that Ford does.

EcoSport: A small SUV that comes from India and is mainly oriented towards emerging countries.

Ford has done well to get these far and future profits, will be a big question. Still, the point of the article is that Ford has done really well to get where it is now.
