Mahindra and Mahindra, India’s utility vehicle specialist and electric vehicle or EV pioneer, has unveiled a total of six new electric concept vehicles and models at South Asia’s biggest motor spectacle indicating its strategic roadmap in Asia’s third biggest car market.
The Mumbai-based automaker also took off the cover on its South Korean arm SsangYong’s G4 Rexton SUV, which would be introduced in India later this year under the Mahindra badge.
The company also showcased the concept of TUV Stinger, a convertible SUV.
In fact, Mahindra plans to shape the ‘future of mobility’ with sustainable mobility solutions that are technologically advanced.
It highlights the company’s future-ready suite of unique passenger and mass mobility products, concepts and solutions built around its ‘3Cs’ philosophy of Clean, Connected and Convenient.
“As India aspires to global leadership on climate action, the time is right to develop sustainable mobility solutions for the future,” Anand Mahindra, executive chairman at Mahindra Group, said while unveiling the products.
“The three pillars of our Future of Mobility theme, namely, Clean, Connected and Convenient is what our products and services stand for,” Pawan Goenka, managing director at Mahindra & Mahindra, said.
Mahindra not only provides a clean business module through its electric business but is also working on cleaner engines in keeping with the upcoming BS VI implementation by 2020.
He said the company has already invested Rs 600 crore in its electric vehicle programme and has committed another Rs 700 crore over the next two-three years.
The Stinger convertible SUV concept is a two-door vehicle, and has a 2+2 seating layout, but there is not much space at the back. There is a large touchscreen infotainment system sitting bang in the middle of the dash, and the Stinger also has off-road modes, which you can select using a dial placed in the middle of two front seats.
