Anand Mahindra is an avid social media user and he often shares fascinating posts that pique the interest of internet users. In his latest tweet, the Mahindra Group Chairman reshared a video of a man who built an electric jeep at his home.
Mr Mahindra on Saturday responded to a job request on Twitter. A Gowtham, a young man from Keezhad in Tamil Nadu's Sivaganga district, shared a video of his battery-operated jeep on social media and wrote, "Please offer me a job sir". In the clip, Mr Gowtham demonstrated that the jeep is built such that its front and back wheels can be controlled separately.
Take a look at the post below:
This is why I'm convinced India will be a leader in EVs. I believe America gained dominance in autos because of people's passion for cars & technology & their innovation through garage ‘tinkering.' May Gowtham & his ‘tribe' flourish. @Velu_Mahindra please do reach out to him. https://t.co/xkFg3SX509— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) August 20, 2022
