India is a vibrant market with a rich automotive manufacturing and supply chain. It has seen challenges in recent years, with regulatory and tax changes before the pandemic, and was then hit hard by Covid lockdowns and supply chain disruptions. Now, manufacturers are highly focused on developing more resilient, efficient and advanced production that will help meet electrification goals, leverage digital innovation and data across operations.

In this session, three of India’s most influential automotive manufacturing and supplier leaders – Pankaj Sonalkar, who leads the electrification technology centre at Mahindra & Mahindra, Mahesh Babu, who leads commercial EV player Switch Mobility in India, and Vinnie Metha, from the Indian automotive supplier association ACMA – talk strategically about the country’s manufacturing progress, difficulties and what it needs to do to remain competitive both in a changing domestic market, and on the global stage.

They explore how Indian manufacturers should use their technical and software expertise, as well as maintain their edge in efficiency and frugality.
