At the same time, the company is also going to stop production of engines exported from India in the first quarter of the current financial year.
The company had said after the announcement of discontinuing production that it would export cars to India. The company said in a statement that it will sell ready-made units of electric cars in India to be manufactured in any other country. The company is also looking to sell its existing factories in the country along with Tata Motors and Hyundai, who are reportedly interested in acquiring the plants.
Following Ford Motors’ decision to cease production in India last year, Tata Motors had shown interest in buying the company’s Sanand plant. Ford Motors had invested Rs 4,500 crore in the Sanand plant. The capacity of this plant of Ford Motors was to manufacture 2.5 lakh to 2.7 lakh engines every year.
