Car lovers in India have something to cheer about. Ford is planning to bring its iconic pony car, the Mustang in India, an English newspaper reported.

Sources close to the firm suggested this thing on the sidelines of Ford’s Sanand plant inauguration in Gujarat, the manufacturer has discussed the prospects of launching the Mustang in India. It could be available for sale in India by the coming festive season in 2015, quoted The Indian Express.

The Ford Mustang was first launched in 1964, and over the years, the power machine has passed through various transformations and established its status in the automotive world.

The Ford Mustang has a large number of following in western countries and the current generation beast is available in three petrol engine configurations- a 310PS, which produces 2.3 litre four-cylinder Eco Boost petrol, followed by a 3.7 litre V6 engine that develops 300PS and a 5.0-litre 435PS V8.

Ford is initially expected to bring the Mustang with the four-cylinder Eco Boost engine coupled to the automatic gearbox in fastback shape to India.

India is a very attractive market with high brand recognition for a computer hardware producer like HP, said HP Inc’s President for Asia Pacific and Japan, Tian Chong Ng.

The Asia Pacific region — in which India is a key focus area — has been the fastest growing for HP and provided 16 per cent revenue growth last year.

In Q1 of FY2019 it registered 8 per cent growth year-on-year, said Ng in the course of the HP Reinvent 2019 conference, the company’s largest global partner event.

One reason for that is — India – and also the Asia Pacific region — tick marks on demographics trends which provide clear wins for HP: rapid urbanisation and more millennials are joining the work force.

While HP is very positive on India and recognises its potential, there are no plans yet for setting up a manufacturing base in India. Ng said it already has a manufacturing base in China apart from others in Vietnam, Thailand and Japan.

“There is an existing ecosystem in China and we don’t have plans for setting up a manufacturing base in India, he said.

One focus area is the 3D printer, which offers HP great opportunity. Construction and automotive sectors are the focus areas here. Meanwhile, an MoU has been signed with the Andhra Pradesh government.

“To be successful in India demands that we understand it,” he said.

HP is also pushing gaming in a big way. However, this has not led to any thinking for manufacturing mobile phones in India, despite the high number of gamers in the country spurred by affordable android phones and cheap data.

“Our strength is the PC business and we offer a whole family of products in that space,” Ng said. (IANS)
