Tech Mahindra, a major provider of digital transformation, consulting, and business re-engineering services and solutions, has announced a partnership with the Foxconn-founded MIH (Mobility in Harmony) Consortium, an open EV coalition that encourages collaboration in the mobility industry. 

The collaboration will focus on creating sustainable mobility solutions as well as building the next generation of Electric Vehicles, autonomous driving solutions, and mobility service applications that provide value to stakeholders in the mobility industry.

As part of the agreement, Tech Mahindra will help MIH build the architecture and platforms for software-defined cars. It will also help customers and stakeholders with software, design development, and consulting. 

The partnership will also try to close the gap between alliance members by using important technologies and making reference designs and standards. This will make it easier to come up with new ideas faster and shorten the time it takes to develop them. 

Narasimham RV, Global Head – Integrated Engineering Services, Tech Mahindra, said: 

“The Indian Electric Vehicle market size is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 65.1%(2022-2029). At Tech Mahindra, we aim to contribute to this growth, and our partnership with MIH Consortium is a step forward in this direction. Together with MIH Consortium, we will focus on making EV cars a reality by 2025 by creating intelligent, innovative, and sustainable mobility solutions and infrastructure. We are confident that our technical prowess in the automotive sector and decades of experience in the field of engineering, coupled with MIH Consortium’s strong expertise in mobility, will help generate groundbreaking results in the EV market.”

Tech Mahindra delivers exponential value to engineering enterprises by collaborating with them across three key tenets: robust products, ubiquitous platforms, and cyber factories, with over 50 exclusive global engineering centres supporting new programme launches and more than 350 active international customers.

Jack Cheng, Chief Executive Officer, MIH Consortium, said: 

“We at MIH are very pleased to have Tech Mahindra onboard with our Consortium as they bring close to 26 years of deep automotive domain expertise to the alliance. Their expertise in electric vehicle (EV) technologies could help the alliance and its members reach their goal of creating an open EV ecosystem that encourages collaboration in the transportation industry. I look forward to welcoming Tech Mahindra into the Alliance and foresee them to be a very critical player in this consortium.”

Currently, the MIH Consortium has over 2,460 members from 65 countries and regions. The group is trying to establish an open EV ecosystem that encourages collaboration among the mobility industry's leading OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, and Electronic Stability Programmes (ESPs) to standardise EV technology and lead the Electric Vehicle revolution.

This partnership aligns with Tech Mahindra's focus on digital growth. Through the NXT.NOWTM framework, which aims to improve 'Human Centric Experience,' Tech Mahindra invests in developing technologies and solutions that enable digital transformation and meet the increasing needs of the consumer.
