Rumour: Ford in talks with Tata for a possible JV

Ford is planning a comeback with multiple new products, including a compact SUV, but might stick to hybrids and EVs.

Recently, there have been speculations surrounding Ford’s possible return to the Indian market. Now, a new media report claims that the American carmaker could be planning to partner with Tata as it prepares its next innings. 

Ford is said to be in talks with the Tata Group for a possible joint venture, details of which are still a bit hazy. 

The report states that Ford is planning a comeback with multiple new products, including a compact SUV. The carmaker might stick to hybrids and EVs though, and manufacture them at its Chennai plant.

Ford has also filed multiple patents in the past few weeks that hint at the possible models that could be on offer. Besides the new-gen Endeavour, Ford has also filed a patent for a mid-size SUV that could replace the EcoSport.
