Ford, Renault developing global engines from India
The ET reports that Ford India is developing a new range of engines dubbed Dragon from it's India-based unit. The engines will be ready by 2016-17, and will come in two avatars, a 1.2L powertrain and a 1.5L powertrain.
Similarly, Renault's R&D unit in Chennai has developed a 986-cc petrol engine which they have dubbed B4D, which is an enhanced version of a 0.8L indigenous engine which Renault plans to use in a new globally launched small car sometime in 2015-16.

re: Ford, Renault developing global engines from India
This has been now a trend across the companies who are manufacturing engines in India both for the local and global market. A case in point is the Maruti small diesel engine which may power the WagonR.
Also it seems like the smaller capacity engines would be sourced from the Indian plants since they are made to the local market due to the tax norms capping the CC for both the petrol and diesel motors and larger engines would be imported into our country due to the low numbers of vehicles sold in that segment.
