US auto major Ford Motor Co is looking to tap opportunities in India for its smart mobility services with the governments push for smart cities providing a good platform, a top company official said. The company’s arm Ford Smart Mobility LLC will initiate a pilot project of its smart shuttle services involving its employees in Chennai by the end of this year. It has also been in talks with authorities in Indore to provide smart infrastructure as part of mobility services.
“We think India is going to be a fantastic market for mobility services for a number of reasons. The first reason being that the government is initiating a number of programmes to allow cities to experiment with new mobility options,” Ford Smart Mobility (FSM) LLC CEO Rajendra Rao told PTI.
