Indian automaker Mahindra has announced the launch of Automobili Pininfarina, a new standalone sustainable luxury vehicle brand, with plans for a new electric hypercar in 2020.
We've already posted a few spy shots of different companies' ideas for the new United States Postal Service mail truck. One of the six companies that were awarded prototype-building contracts is the Indian Mahindra, which is eager to gain a foothold in the U.S. no matter what the niche. Now, Mahindra's mail truck prototype has been spied testing on Ohio roads.
Ford has announced that it will co-develop an SUV with Mahindra, the Indian manufacturer of tractors, EVs, and most importantly for this story, trucks. The new SUV will use a Mahindra platform, and it's implied that Ford will do the heavy lifting on the rest of the vehicle. The two companies will also develop an electric vehicle, perhaps with input or branding with Mahindra's Pininfarina subsidiary.
A little while ago we wrote about ItalDesign's Zerouno supercar, which is sold under the company's own brand name. Another design house, Pininfarina, will also become a carmaker brand, as it prepares to launch a hypercar with Mahindra investments backing it up.
