Focus: Ford Goes Local On India, Aims For Bigger Slice Of Competitive Market

Ford Motor Co made a profit in India for the first time in a decade in the last fiscal year, signalling that a strategy conceived two years ago by the U.S. car manufacturer for one of the world’s most competitive car markets is starting to show some success. Under an initiative called the Emerging Market Operating Model (EMOM), Ford cut manufacturing costs by 40 percent and is developing more vehicles locally as it moves away from its “One Ford” plan, which restricted its ability to be cost-competitive and agile in a fast-growing market, Ford executives and industry sources told Reuters.


“EMOM is the North Star for the turnaround at Ford in India,” Anurag Mehrotra, managing director of Ford’s India unit, said in an interview. It’s early days yet, and Ford still accounts for less than 3 percent of total passenger vehicle sales in India, where analysts say it’s tough for auto manufacturers to make money. “They are still a long way away till they can call India a successful market,” said Kaushik Madhavan, vice president, mobility at consultant Frost & Sullivan.

A key factor for Ford India will be how it leverages its partnership with local automaker Mahindra & Mahindra, he said. As part of EMOM, Ford is deepening ties with Mahindra to build passenger vehicles in India, which could also involve sales in other emerging markets. Over the past two decades, Ford has invested $2 billion in India, which has become a major growth area for car manufacturers. Car sales rose 8 percent to 3.3 million last year and India is set to become the world’s third-largest market by 2020 with sales of over 5 million cars, according to consultant IHS Markit.

But global car companies have mostly struggled to woo India’s cost-conscious buyers and are now under pressure from investors to focus on profitable markets and technologies like electric and autonomous vehicles. The success of India’s top carmaker Maruti Suzuki, a unit of Suzuki Motor Corp which sells one in every two cars in the country, has been built on having a wide range of products, low prices, a vast dealership network and an autonomous local team that can quickly react to market changes. Its nearest competitor is Hyundai Motor Co with a 17 percent market share, which has had better success than some of its American and European rivals like General Motors, Fiat Chrysler and Volkswagen AG.

Ford is at a considerable distance from the leaders in the market, but sold more than 90,000 vehicles in the last fiscal year and exported twice the number. Two years ago, Ford’s annual sales in India were less than 80,000 and it exported about 110,000 vehicles, industry data showed.


Western carmakers have not come close to Japan’s Suzuki and South Korea’s Hyundai because they have failed to tweak their global products and strategy to suit a frugal market like India, and their local teams often lack autonomy, industry sources say.

Ford’s new strategy gives greater autonomy to the local management team, and will contribute to a global restructuring plan to save $11 billion over the next few years by cutting costs, forming partnerships and investing in new technologies. The strategy already seems to be giving Ford a cautious beginning to better sales in India. Ford India made a profit of ₹ 5.26 billion ($72 million) in the fiscal year that ended on March 31 compared with a loss of 5.21 billion rupees a year ago, according to a regulatory filing. In contrast, General Motors decided to cut its losses and stopped selling cars in India last year while Volkswagen took a backseat, handing over strategy for the country to its sister-company Skoda.

Ford’s top Asia and India executives came up with EMOM during a week-long strategy meeting in Shanghai in late 2016 and picked India as a testbed. The strategy has not formally been taken to other markets yet. “We realised we need to have a sustainable and profitable business in India,” said Mehrotra, adding that Ford looked at its brand, products, cost and scale to improve efficiency.

For instance, in its Figo hatchback that sells for as little as ₹ 600,000 ($8,200), Ford used imported floormats that cost more than locally sourced ones. During a review under EMOM it learned that buyers don’t really want imported mats, he said. It reduced logistics costs by 20 per cent by switching to rail freight instead of roads, and increased the use of locally sourced components in its cars to more than 85 percent from about 60-70 percent.


Ford officials also said the company has developed a low-cost dealership format which is smaller in size and has fewer cars on display. It costs half of the 50-60 million rupees Ford usually spends on things like showroom inventory, spare parts and the sales force when setting up a dealership. In the last 18 months it has opened more than 100 such dealerships, especially in smaller towns and cities to further its reach, Mehrotra said. It would earlier cost Ford about three times the amount a domestic carmaker would spend on a product upgrade because Ford India needs to pay a fee, or royalty, to the parent, said a source aware of the changes.

Under EMOM, Ford India will develop more products in-house, making it more responsive to market changes and reducing the royalty fee, which will boost profits, the source said. “One Ford doesn’t work anymore,” said the source, alluding to a global product strategy devised by former CEO Alan Mulally. “It will be there in spirit, but it will not be implemented the same way as it was two years ago.”

Ford last year formed an alliance with SUV and truck-maker Mahindra to co-develop vehicles, including electric cars, share powertrains and work on new technologies. The carmaker made a similar strategy shift in China, giving up on its “One Ford” model and working with local, low-cost carmakers to come up with more competitive mainstream cars and boost sales.

Ford and Mahindra are co-developing two platforms and the first car on it is likely be launched in 2020, two sources said, adding that Ford is using Mahindra as a benchmark to bring down supplier costs in the region. Mahindra is also the only commercial electric vehicle manufacturer in India, and Ford would benefit from getting access to its low-cost technology to build electric cars. Mahindra is already working on an electric prototype of Ford’s compact sedan Aspire, the sources said.


“We’re certainly concentrating on India right now, but there’s all kinds of opportunity beyond India together should we both want to explore that,” Joe Hinrichs, Ford’s president of global operations, told Reuters in an interview in September.

Last-Gasp Cristiano Biraghi Goal Saves Italy, Gives Roberto Mancini First Competitive Win

“A new cycle has already begun,” said Mancini.

“We dominated the game, we had to score the first goal, it would have been unfair to finish 0-0.

“All the lads are trying to do their best. It’s a good win in a very good game.”

Fiorentina defender Biraghi made the sign ’13’ with his hands when he scored, as he dedicated his first goal to former Italy and Fiorentina captain Davide Astori who died of a heart attack last March.

“I owe everything to him. I’m here thanks to Davide who was a mentor for me,” said Biraghi, who was called up to Italy for the first time last month at the age of 26.

European champions Portugal lead the three-team group with six points from two games with Italy on four points after three games with Poland relegated to League B with one point.

Mancini stuck with the same eleven he started with in last Wednesday’s 1-1 draw against Ukraine with Federico Bernardeschi, Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Chiesa leading the attack.

Nicolo Barella, 21, was chosen to start over Lorenzo Pellegrini in midfield after making his international debut in Genoa. Poland opted for the strike partnership of Robert Lewandowski and Arkadiusz Milik over Genoa forward Krzysztof Piatek, who has scored 14 goals in ten competitive games for club and country.

Italy had the best of the first half but once again demonstrated their difficulty finishing off.

Jorginho rattled the bar within the first minute, with Federico Chiesa also hitting the woodwork after half an hour in the Silesian Stadium.

Poland could thank Wojciech Szczesny for keeping them in the game with the under-pressure goalkeeper denying Alessandro Florenzi, Jorginho, Federico Bernardeschi and Juventus teammate Giorgio Chiellini in the first half.

Italy had a goal disallowed after 65 minutes following a well-worked pass between Bernardeschi and Marco Verratti with Insigne offside in the box.

Poland also had a couple of chances in the second half with Kamil Grosicki denied by Gianluigi Donnarumma, with Arkadiusz Milik curling over.

– ‘Never say die attitude’ –

Just when it looked as if both sides would settle for a draw, off the last corner, substitute Kevin Lasagna, who made his international debut, steered in for the Biraghi to finish off.

“It had looked as if the match was jinxed,” said Biraghi. 

“The minutes were going by and the ball wouldn’t go in.

“When you create a lot and the ball doesn’t go in you start to get nervous, even risk losing.

“Instead we stayed calm and believed until the end. This victory is thanks to the group’s never say die attitude.”

The result ensures Italy stayed in the tier ahead of December’s Euro 2020 qualifying draw.

Italy next host Portugal on November 17 with Poland playing in Portugal three days later.

Mohammad Kaif Announces Retirement From Competitive Cricket

Mohammad Kaif announced his retirement from all forms of competitive cricket on Friday, almost 12 years after he last played for the Indian team in which he stood out as much for his acrobatic fielding as for his effective middle-order batting. 37-year-old Kaif played 13 Tests and 125 ODIs for India and will always be remembered for his match-winning knock of 87 at the Lord’s during the epic Natwest Trophy final in 2002. “I’m writing to you today to announce my retirement from all forms of first-class cricket,” Kaif intimated acting president CK Khanna and acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary in an email.

He was a part of the Indian team that reached the World Cup final in South Africa. Along with Yuvraj Singh, Kaif was among the stars to emerge from the U-19 India stable after leading the U-19 team to a maiden Junior World Cup triumph in 2000.

Kaif, who has won the Ranji Trophy for UP, last played first class cricket for Chattisgarh. “I am retiring today as it’s been 16 years since the historic NatWest Trophy win in which I was glad to play my part, and I’d like to remember that as I bow out,” he wrote.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to have worn the India cap, and to have gone on to play 125 ODIs and 13 Tests for India, and for several other moments.” Kaif will always be remembered as being one of the finest fielders that India has ever produced. During the five years that he was an India regular, it was his electric reflexes inside the 30 yard circle, especially the cover region, that made him special.

Along with Yuvraj Singh at point, Kaif formed the backbone of Indian fielding during the time Sourav Ganguly led the Indian cricketing renaissance. One of the fittest cricketers of his time, a batting average of 32 in 125 ODIs, with only two hundreds, don’t tell the story of Kaif’s fighting abilities coming at No 6 or 7 with only few deliveries to play.

In his 13 Test appearances, Kaif logged 2753 runs at an average of 32.01, including two hundreds and 17 half-centuries. Apart from his Lord’s knock, Kaif’s hundred against Zimbabwe in the Champions Trophy 2002 will also remain in memory as he lifted the team from the dumps after the top order found itself back in the pavilion for less than 100 on the board.

However, issues with his technique made him vulnerable against top quality pacers, something that was exposed thoroughly during the 2006 tour of South Africa. He never played for India again but remained a quality player in domestic cricket leading UP for many years. He finished with 7581 first class runs with 15 hundreds across 129 matches. Kaif is already a cricket analyst and a respected hindi commentator.

E-Sports: Competitive Gaming Is Here to Stay, Major Organiser Says

E-sports are not just a passing fad like Pokemon and are here to stay, a major organiser has told Reuters.

Jan Pommer, the head of Team and Federation relations at Electronic Sports League, said e-sports were played by over 400 million people worldwide.

According to Pommer, the competitive side of gaming is a deeply rooted in the culture of younger generations and traditional media outlets are now covering it.

“It is not a hype or something that goes away after two or three years like Pokemon,” Pommer said ahead of the FIFA eClub World Cup, which takes place in Paris this weekend.

“Pokemon obviously is still around but it has only been a phenomenon for a small period of time,” he added, referring to the popular media franchise spanning video games, animated television shows and movies, comic books and toys.

The International Olympic Committee said last October that competitive e-sports could be considered a sporting activity.

E-sports will also be part of the 2022 Asian Games, while many professional sports teams have also set up their own ‘e-teams’ competing for national and international titles.

While some critics say competitive gaming is not sport, Pommer says the debate is irrelevant to most gamers.

“It is called e-sport but most e-sport athletes do not care how you call it. They are having fun and they just do it,” Pommer said.

“It’s not up to anybody to state whether it is a sport or not, not the International Olympic Committee, not a government.”

Yet Pommer said there were similarities with sports.

“You need good eye and hand coordination,” he said.

“It’s somehow similar to pistol shooting or chess as the brain is important. There are good reasons to call it sports.”

Pommer said that about 150 million people were playing e-sports at a high level and 2.2 billion were ‘gaming’. The average age of the gaming community also meant that the popularity of e-sports was likely to grow.

“The number of e-sport enthusiasts is growing by 10 percent every year,” he said.

“About 80 percent of people following e-sport or playing are younger than 35. It’s something for the younger generations.

“You can follow it on Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and most importantly on Twitch (the world’s leading video platform and community for gamers).

“At the same time, more and more TV stations, like ESPN, are embracing it because they understand that it is one way to gain those young people who don’t use the TV on a daily basis.”
