Default Mahindra to develop range of autonomous electric vehicles

Speaking to Autocar ahead of last weekend’s Formula E championship finale in London, Mahindra CEO Anand Mahindra said sharing the expertise of each of the company’s brands will be vital for it to create products for intelligent mobility, including a line-up of autonomous electric vehicles (EVs).

I feel like autonomous car's are still a decade away from being commercially accepted, that said every other car-makers in the world are investing heavily on it, and its really good to see our home-grown auto makers are taking the future technology head-on.

Too futuristic and won't help M&M. Currently, their Verito and Vibe are doing dismal business. Reva is down big time. The only segments where they seem to be getting some numbers are the Suv, pseudo Suv and small commercial vehicle space. Their USP in all those segments is only ruggedness and ability to traverse in rural areas with good payloads.

In my humble opinion, the firm should focus on getting the sales of its current line up in order before foraging into uncharted waters in what is definitely a very niche segment. I really wonder what are the sales projections for autonomous electric vehicles as per M&M.

Getting into too many segments and spreading scarce resources thin is a recipe for disaster.

Last month I was at ARAI,Pune, for the SIAT-2017 and they have displayed the Autonomous e2O project. This project is handled by ARAI along with Cognizent(If I remember it correct) for some of the algorithm development.

I think they have already had a good progress in terms of controlled environment testing.
