Mahindra plans a new production facility in Detroit

Mahindra and Mahindra, one of the biggest UV manufacturer in India, intends to build an auto assembly plant in Detroit, Michigan. When conceptualised, Mahindra’s newly built facility will be the first new auto plant in the region in more than 25 years.

Further details of the said 400,000-square-foot facility are expected to be released later this month. The Indian carmaker plans to manufacture an off-road utility vehicle at the plant with a dedicated off-road course for the testing purpose. Mahindra North America will be the body responsible for the entire project.

Mahindra has been trying to foray into the U.S. automotive market for 10 years now. The carmaker planned to sell pickup trucks in the States, with a dealership network of more than 300. Unfortunately, those plans were terminated in 2010.

Following that, in 2013, Mahindra established the Mahindra North American Technical Center (MNATC) in Troy, Michigan. The MNATC is a comprehensive automotive design, engineering, and vehicle development centre which is focused on the US market. It comprises of many skilled designers, engineers and test engineers who are working on the company’s various global future projects.

Last year, the MNATC became one of the six companies to be shortlisted to develop a Next Generation Delivery Vehicle (NGDV) prototype for United States Postal Service. Mahindra’s NGDV prototype was spotted for the first time a few days back and you can read all about it over here.

These plans are still in its early stages. There are no further details of when the production in the new plant will commence. So, stay tuned to CarWale for more details in the coming days.
