Mahindra & Ford to co-develop midsize UV

08/05/2019 | Author: Autoguide | 0 Comments Back To Home   < Previous News   |   Next news >

Signing of MOU

Mahindra Group and Ford Motor Company on April 18 took a further  step in strengthening their ongoing strategic alliance in the country with a definitive agreement to co-develop a midsize sports utility vehicle (SUV). 
 
Under the new agreement, Mahindra and Ford will work together to introduce a benchmark product for India and emerging markets. 
 
The agreement reinforces the steady progress made since the announcement of the strategic alliance between the two companies in September 2017, followed by an announcement on powertrain sharing and connected car solutions in October 2018. 
 
The new midsize sports utility vehicle (C-SUV) will have a common Mahindra product platform and powertrain, thus driving engineering and commercial efficiencies.
 
Dr Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, M&M Ltd. said, “I am happy with the significant progress we have made and synergies we have created since the announcement of our strategic alliance with Ford in 2017. Today’s announcement is another significant step in the collaboration between our two companies. Having identified several areas for joint development, both companies will continue to work together to develop products using common product platforms. This will reduce product development costs and gain economies of scale for both companies.”
 
Mr Jim Farley, President of Ford New Businesses, Technology & Strategy, said, “With today’s announcement, we not only strengthen our ongoing partnership with Mahindra but also sharpen our competitiveness in an important emerging market like India.” Ford’s technological leadership, he said, combined with Mahindra’s successful operating model and product prowess “will surely help us deliver a vehicle that will meet the expectations of customers in India as well as other emerging markets.”
 
The strategic alliance between the two companies is focused on leveraging the benefits of both companies -- Ford’s global reach and expertise and Mahindra’s scale and successful operating model in India. 
 
Earlier this fiscal year, the alliance signed an agreement with Mahindra Group to develop and supply a low-displacement petrol engine for use in Ford’s present and future vehicles, beginning 2020. Mahindra and Ford also announced joint development of a telematics control unit.
