Mahindra electric car

Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said that the company has been testing its fleet of autonomous cars, trucks, and tractors on the U.S. streets. This move has taken the Indian automaker a step closer to bring electric vehicles to United States.

Mahindra & Mahindra established its new headquarters in Detroit yesterday. It will announce the date of the commercial launch soon.

The company is also contemplating on whether the vehicles should carry Mahindra brand or one of its affiliates like Ssangyong Motor Co., a Korean maker of utility and crossover vehicles or Pininfarina, a well-known Italian design firm.

The Indian company purchased Ssangyong in 2011 and Pininfarina in 2015. It is collaborating with these companies to develop electric vehicles for the U.S. and the Chinese market.

Anand Mahindra said that the company is testing autonomous tractors after it purchased a small stake in Mitsubishi Agriculture Machinery, a Japanese company in 2015. There are several tractor assembly plants of Mahindra in the U.S.

The development of self-driving vehicles is in its infancy. Mahindra & Mahindra had begun manufacturing electric vehicles in India since 1990. In the later half of 2010, it acquired Reva Electric Car Co., a Bangalore-based electric car manufacturer, and transformed it into Mahindra Electric Mobility Ltd. Now, it develops compact electric vehicles for India.

In September 2017, the Indian automaker renewed its contract with Ford Motor Co. It formed a new collaboration with a common vision to share technology, develop products, and source parts, mainly for electric vehicles.
