Mahindra in talks with Ashok Leyland, Renault & Hyundai to supply electric powertrains
Hyundai has been looking at multiple partnerships to localise, seeking to ensure that EVs become mainstream and affordable. Ashok Leyland is also is quite open to the idea of working with partners on electric vehicle technology, an idea which has been resonated by its management. The truck major has partnered with Chetan Maini-promoted Sun Mobility to launch the Circuit S, an electric bus powered by the latter's swappable battery technology.

re: Mahindra in talks with Ashok Leyland, Renault & Hyundai to supply electric powertrains
Mahindra's Formula e effort along with its technology partner 'Umicore' should have led to them being the pioneers in the domestic market. But surprisingly they did not make significant inroads with the e2o. I thought the whole point of racing in F-e was to imbibe that understanding in their domestic models.
Every manufacturer is talking about 'scale-able' EV architecture yet not able bring out one good model like Tesla Model 3. GM too recently announced their EV platform can be used across various segments yet has done absolutely nothing with their quite expensive Bolt EV.
Although I really liked the Atom concept as it is something which can be utilized properly in mundane tasks like grocery runs etc and remain cost effective for the masses, not to mention occupy minimal space in an already cramped neighborhood situation in most major cities.
