Не выдержали конкуренции

Ford (F) has long struggled in India. The automaker began operations there in 1995, and has invested more than $2 billion in the country over the past 25 years. Two plants in the cities of Sanand and Chennai will shutter in the coming months and the company will "work closely" with employees affected by the closures.
In 2019, Ford reached a deal with local rival Mahindra to transfer most of its Indian business into a new joint venture, but the deal fell apart late last year. The companies cited "fundamental changes in global economic and business conditions" caused in part by the pandemic.
Ford is the latest US carmaker to cut back its India business in recent years. General Motors (GM) announced in 2017 that it would stop selling cars in the country.

Форд уходит из Индии, 4 года назад ушел Дженерал Моторс. Проигрывают конкуренцию и несут сплошные потери. Полагаю, слишком дорогие автомобили для Индии и, в отличие от некоторых стран, где это не останавливает продажи, тут есть альтернатива.
