Mahindra To Develop Self-Driving Electric Cars

Written By:

Indian automotive and technology giant Mahindra is developing a range of autonomous electric cars.

The Mahindra group is currently invested in six automotive companies along with four IT companies and with numerous other companies that specialise in tech and production.

Speaking to Autocar UK ahead of last week's season-ending London E-Prix Formula E Race (The electric single seater racing series where Mahindra fields a team.), Mahindra CEO, Anand Mahindra spoke about his company's plans regarding the future of mobility and how it plans to achieve it.

Mr. Mahindra stated that the differences between his companies was a strength rather than a weakness and that their expertise in their fields would help Mahindra create products for intelligent mobility including autonomous electric cars.

"If you look at the future of mobility, having one of the largest IT companies in India [Tech Mahindra] as part of your group, it's not a bad thing to have," he said.

"They're already doing an enormous amount of work with other companies - which we cannot name - on autonomous vehicles. A lot of their technology will go into our cars and our EVs."

The new electric vehicles will be badged as Mahindras but the tech along with the autonomous driving capabilities will make their way into Ssangyong and Pininfarina, with the latter company set to develop an all-electric sports car.

However, the company hasn't revealed any indication about what type of autonomous vehicles it will be making or when they will be unveiled.
