The new brand will be called Automobili Pininfarina.

As a sign of this big step, Mahindra Racing will be wearing Pininfarina colours at the Rome e-Prix on the M4 Electro.

"We believe that this is the flawless time to launch Automobili Pininfarina, given Mahindra's growing EV expertise from our participation in Formula E racing where we are now second in the constructors' and drivers' championships, and Pininfarina's design expertise that will allow us to develop stylish, extreme-performance, electric vehicles for global markets", said Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra. Perschke will be joined by Per Svantesson as Chief Operating Officer (COO), who has been with the Volvo Group and NEVS in the past. It's a powerful combination.

Why a 2020 launch?

All manufacturing, engineering and design operations of Pininfarina Automobili will be carried out in Europe, where the new firm will be located. When we have sold cars ourselves, like the Pininfarina Sergio [of which six were built in 2015 and sold for a reputed $3m each], we have always done very well.

Paolo Pininfarina, chairman of Pininfarina SpA said that they were pleased to welcome the new company, Automobili Pininfarina which represents an additional client for Pininfarina SpA, joining the list of the many prestigious vehicle makers for which they will be designing cars in the future. "The cars will be exclusive and very handsome".
