A part of the Mahindra Global Design Network, this new Centre of Excellence (CoE) will join the Mahindra Design Studio in Mumbai, India, and Pininfarina Design in Turin, Italy, in enhancing the company’s global design capabilities, and their commitment to bring to their customers world-class SUVs with sophisticated designs.
M.A.D.E. aims to further improve the company’s unique product designs, and distinct technology that is the signature of Mahindra cars, creating a safe, thrilling, yet extremely efficient automobile experience for its customers.
Elaborating on this announcement further and what it means for Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., Executive Director, Rajesh Jejurikar, said, “Mahindra is poised to enter a new, exciting era to build upon our rich 75 years of automotive history to bring unique customer-centric products to the Indian and global markets. A key lever to make the business future-ready is to significantly strengthen design capability across automotive, farm equipment and two-wheelers globally. M.A.D.E. will contribute to all future automotive and mobility products, including Born EV SUVs and be a resource available to Mahindra Group companies. It will give us a quantum leap in both capacity and capability in the design space.”
