If i buy car from Ford, can they discontinue there business by 2020 in India. as i see that ford ecosport is major contributor to ford sales, and with hyundai venue, xuv300, kia seltos, brezza petrol can hit sales of ecosport further. concerned if i buy ford ecosport in 2019, can it be possible that company discontinue operations in next year

Yes is correct that Ford Ecosport is what accounts for almost 50%+ sales of Ford India and this is the product which has helped Ford India in last 6 years to retain its presence

In terms of discontinuing operations - probability is very low
> India is base for export hub of Ford. Infact, they are biggest exporter across all OEM in India. Last year they exported over 1.5 Lakh cars which is close to 1.75 times the sales as they did in Indian Market

> Ecosport is continually been upgraded and lot of strategy goes in with Ecosport where the product has witness lot of feature changes, new engine now with 1.5 litre dragon, new transmission as 6 Speed Torque converter as against DCT unit been given earlier, strategic price cuts along with enhancement in features, limited edition with a best possible attempt. Despite competition increasing - Ecosport is known for one among better cars with Superior Handling, SUV Kind of road presence as against crossover cars badged as SUV, long list of variants with 3 Engine choices.

> Yes, was news of Mahindra Ford JV where would synergies can come in terms of sharing Technical know-how, electric vehicles, future strategies and possibly building a brand where one can have Mahindra-Ford cars to be sold in this JV

Rest no official details as of now to discontinue operations.
Hope should help !!
