India: Driven to compete

Steve Eder of The Toledo Blade reports that the embattled U.S. auto industry is facing yet another threat — India. In a three-part series, The Blade shows how India's automakers are ramping up plans to sell their cars globally. The project, which included interviews with auto executives, parts suppliers, engineers, politicians and peasants in India's five biggest cities — Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, and Chennai — examined how automakers such as Ford, GM, and Hyundai are expanding their operations in India in hopes of selling  cars to members of the nation's growing middle class. The series also explored how the influx of automotive plants in India is causing strife between farmers and industrialists, while creating hundreds of thousands of jobs.
