Mahindra was founded in 1945

Currently, Mahindra is known for producing the best cars in the country. Currently, apart from commercial vehicles, the company also manufactures diesel, petrol and electric vehicles. Mahindra is one of the leading car manufacturers in the country. About 78 years ago the company started as a steel manufacturing company. In 1945, Ghulam Mohammed and Kailash Chandra Mahindra started the company as Mahindra & Mohammed. But after the partition of India, Mohammad decided to go to Pakistan. Then in 1948 the company name was changed to Mahindra & Mahindra.

First tractor manufactured in 1961

Initially, the company dealt in steel in collaboration with companies in England. After that, only in 1948, the company started assembling the Willys Jeep in India. Due to high demand, in 1949, the company got license to manufacture Willys Jeep and started manufacturing it in India. Here we tell you that it was the first off-roading car in the country, which came with 4-wheel drive feature. However, the company later licensed it to a Japanese company. In 1961, Mahindra produced the first tractor in collaboration with an American company. After that, the company did not look back. The company entered the world of automobiles as the demand for cars in the country started to increase.
