Mahindra becomes member of Open Automotive Alliance

Mahindra has announced that it has become a member of the Open Automotive Alliance (OPA), making it the first Indian car manufacturer to be a part of this esteemed group.

The Open Automotive Alliance (OAA) is a global alliance of vehicle manufacturers with leading edge technology, committed to bringing the Android platform to cars. The announcement was made at Google I/O, Google's developer conference in San Francisco, recently.

Android Auto extends the Android platform into the car in a way that is purpose-built for driving. It offers next generation solution in connectivity by linking smart phones and tablets with an in-vehicle infotainment system. Currently some global car manufacturers like Audi, Bentley, Chevrolet, Ford, Fiat, Dodge, Honda, Hyundai and Jeep are already a part of this alliance. Other than car manufacturers, technology companies like Delphi, Panasonic, nVidia, Google are also a part of this alliance. 

 “We are happy to be part of the OAA and being the first Indian OEM to be part of this prestigious global alliance, it is indeed a moment we are proud of. At Mahindra we have always been committed to introducing newer technological offerings in our vehicles in an endeavour to create an enriched user experience and provide better value technologies to our customers. Going forward, after successful integration, we will be offering Android Auto in our flagship models of XUV 500 and the Scorpio as well as on our future platforms.  I am confident that this will help us in taking a quantum leap in offering connectivity solutions to our customers," said Pravin Shah, president and chief executive, automotive division, Mahindra.
