Sad as it may be to see a good American car manufacturer like Ford loose steam in India, there is some good news in store. The manufacturer will continue to support its customers with availability of parts along with after sales and service.
The future looks weak but Ford has imports offerings on the cards. The Indian market could finally have models such as Ranger, Mustang and Mustang Mach E being offered as niece products offerings. The company will also be expanding its back end operations with more employees in a bid to support Ford globally.
