Together with MIH Consortium, we will focus on making EV cars a reality by 2025 by creating intelligent, innovative, and sustainable mobility solutions and infrastructure. We are confident that our technical prowess in the automotive sector and decades of experience in the field of engineering coupled with MIH Consortium’s strong expertise in mobility will help generate ground-breaking results in the EV market.”

Their lead into the EV vehicle technologies would very well add immense value to the alliance and its members in furthering the vision of creating an open EV ecosystem that promotes collaboration in the mobility industry. I look forward to welcoming Tech Mahindra into the Alliance and foresee them to be a very critical player in this consortium.”
