Mahindra & Mahindra on August 14 officially opened doors to a modern and state-of-the-art Mahindra SUV Proving Track (MSPT) at Kanchipuram, in Tamil Nadu.
Inaugurated by Dr. Anish Shah, MD & CEO, M&M Ltd, in the presence of Mr Rajesh Jejurikar, Executive Director, Auto & Farm Sector, Mr Veejay Nakra, CEO, Automotive Division and Mr Velusamy R, Chief of Global Product Development, Automotive Division, the track is one of the biggest and comprehensive automotive proving grounds owned by an automobile OEM in the country, said a press release.
The track is just 55 km away from the Mahindra Research Valley where all Mahindra SUVs are developed. The MRV engineers can now extensively test the product and also ready them for homologation in this custom-made facility.
MSPT has been developed with an investment of Rs 510 crore and is built over 454 acres of land at Cheyyar SIPCOT Industrial Area. Designed by IDIADA, a Spanish institution, the track took three years to complete.
