Mahindra & Mahindra, one of the early adopters of Electric Vehicles, has said that it was open to accepting new fundings from the investors to bolster its pollution-free vehicle manufacturing business. The demand for electric vehicles has been gaining momentum across the world for a couple of years, especially after Elon Musk’s Tesla car is doing round of the news.
Anand Mahindra-owned car manufacturing company is setting an aim to introduce 16 new electric vehicles before 2027. The new line of electronic vehicles will include eight cars from the sports utility vehicles category and the remaining cars from the light commercial vehicles category. Additionally, the car-making company is exploring investments opportunities in their farm machinery business.
Mahindra & Mahindra Group is optimistic about supercharging its farm machinery business up to 10 folds and boosting its revenues to Rs 5000 crore by the end of 2027.
Anish Shah, managing director at Mahindra & Mahindra, said that they are working on many bold strategies to bring in growth in numerous segments, including electronic vehicles and farm machinery.
Consequently, we are now willing to explore external funding sources that will enable us to grow more rapidly in many of the areas listed above. Nevertheless, it’s not just about the investment infusion, and the investors can also bring in their expertise.
Tata Motors, last month, received $9.1 billion in funding for its electronic vehicles segment. Several other businesses, including TVS and Bajaj Auto, are also forming up their subsidiaries, with one of the intentions to raise funds.
Investors across the world are aggressively looking for opportunities in the hope of inventing an electric vehicle as successful as the Tesla car. One reason for this might be the unbelievable returns of more than 1600 percent Tesla witnessed in less than two years. No doubts, such kind of high returns can allure any investor.
Mahindra & Mahindra aims to infuse more than Rs 3000 crore into its electronic vehicles business by the end of the fiscal year 2024. As part of the car-making company’s efforts to get back to the top of India’s electronic vehicles business, the infused money will be burnt on building its new product line.
These investments are not yet ascertained when they will be infused. The value of our electric vehicle manufacturing business will depend on bagging the best deal possible, Ashish Shah said further.
