Continuing with the alliance between the two companies, Mahindra and Ford have signed an agreement to co-develop a compact SUV for India and other emerging markets. This announcement follows the previous agreement between the two companies of sharing powertrain development tech and car connectivity solutions.

The companies said that this little SUV will be built on a common Mahindra product platform and powertrain to make the manufacturing more efficient. What that means to us, is we can expect the car to be reasonably priced.

Earlier this year, Ford signed an agreement with Mahindra Group to develop and supply a low-displacement petrol engine for use in Ford’s present and future vehicles, beginning in 2020. This hints at the same engine being used in the new compact SUV.

More updates as they come. Stay tuned.
