MAM developing new K2 Series of lightweight tractors
In November 2020, M&M had announced that it is working on developing a new range of tractors developed in collaboration with Mitsubishi of Japan. The new tractor series called the ‘K2’ is Mahindra’s most ambitious lightweight tractor program and will be exclusively produced at the company’s tractor plant at Zaheerabad in the state of Telangana.

 

Developed through close collaboration between the engineering teams from Mitsubishi Mahindra Agricultural Machinery of Japan and Mahindra Research Valley, India, the K2 series aims to create a lightweight tractor program for both domestic and international markets.

 

The new series will enable Mahindra to introduce products across four new tractor platforms, in the Sub-Compact, Compact, Small Utility and Large Utility tractor categories, covering 37 models across various HP points. The new series will cater to domestic as well as International markets including USA, Japan, and South East Asia.

 

Mahindra continues to strengthen its leadership team and has in the recent past on-boarded several high-profile leaders including Dr. Uli Stuhec, who has joined as Vice-President & Head - Global Born Electric Platform, based in Mahindra North American Technical Centre, Detroit.
