In fact, Ford will build electric cars in Indian factories, which is why they have applied to come under the government project. However, electric vehicles made on Indian soil will be exported to foreign markets, the company said.

Besides, now we have nothing special to say. I will let you know if there is any possible project in future. ” However, Ford plans to launch iconic cars such as the Mustang coupe for Indian customers.

Incidentally, Ford has factories in Sananda, Gujarat and Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Where internal combustion engine (ICE) cars were made. The company said it would stop production at the factory from September last year. However, for the next five years, they decided to keep the engine factory in Sananda for Indian customers.
