We love seeing automotive brands bringing out cool new products, especially when they’re from the brands that are often overlooked in favour of the usual suspects. It was a great move previewing the latest concept from Mahindra here in Cape Town at the brand’s signature Futurescape event because if you can say anything about SA, it’s that it’s a bakkie-loving country through and through. The brand already does well in SA, but this here looks like a model that has the potential to sway the buying public away from the usual Ford, Toyota, VW and Isuzu products. The Global Pik Up is based on the new Gen Ladder Frame platform, and that means the possibility of a production version is that much more real. R Velusamy, President – Automotive Technology and Product Development, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said, “This Global Pik Up from Mahindra, based on the Tough & Versatile New Gen Ladder Frame platform is engineered to deliver performance, safety, utility, and robust capability. The core principles of this concept lie in crafting a multifaceted vehicle for the contemporary era. Its blend of versatility and capability is fortified by state-of-the-art technologies such as Level-2 ADAS, immersive infotainment, and more. We are focused on building a true global pickup that reflects authenticity, with engineering and safety features designed to resonate with the global audience.”
Take a look at the YouTube video from the international reveal of the all-new Mahindra Global Pik Up that recently took place on local shores in Cape Town. While this is still technically a concept, the way things go these days, the production version may look a lot like what you see here. That's a good thing, because what we see in this walkaround video from the chaps at Overdrive looks pretty damn cool: Mahindra Pik Up Concept Walkaround video - Launching By 2026 | OVERDRIVE
