Mahindra on Friday issued a statement at the end of discussions and the calling-off of the possible JV. Here’s the full statement:

Mahindra & Mahindra, a part of the USD 19.4 billion Mahindra Group and Ford Motor Company have mutually, amicably determined one thing. Which is, they will not complete a previously announced automotive joint venture between their companies. The action followed the passing of the December 31, “longstop”, or expiration, date of a definitive agreement the organizations entered into in October 2019.

According to the companies, the outcome is a result of fundamental changes in global economic and business conditions. Which caused, in part, by the global pandemic since the agreement was first announced. Those changes influenced separate decisions by Ford and Mahindra to reassess their respective capital allocation priorities.

Mahindra said that this decision will not have any impact on its product plan. It is well-positioned in its core true SUV DNA and product platforms with a strong focus on financial performance. In addition, Mahindra is increasing the speed of its efforts to get leadership in electric S U V s.
