Home / Social media / News / Mahindra's Global Pik Up Concept revealed in Cape Town. Now we want the production version.


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.”

The Global Pik Up has been designed as a versatile, robust, and stylish vehicle, suitable for a wide range of applications, just like any other bakkie, but it’s the package that everything is wrapped up in that we like. Those strong lines with a style all of its own are very nice to look at indeed, and the best part is that the bakkie’s lines don’t mimic anything else out there right now, as is usually seen with Chinese creations. The Global Pik Up aims to meet global safety standards using advanced safety technologies. The vehicle's convenience and driving experience is elevated through innovative technology features, and inside, the infotainment system and immersive audio can equal what the main players offer up, but undoubtedly at a much more affordable price point. The Global Pik Up will also feature Mahindra's intelligent 4Xplore 4-wheel drive system making it suitable for a plethora of uses. Pratap Bose, Chief Design Officer, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said, "Design is the cornerstone of our success, shaping our identity and paving the way for our global acceptance. The Global Pik Up’s rugged, dependable, and purposeful appearance appeals universally, reflecting a desire for adventure and exploration. The satin-finish titanium-gold paint highlights the vehicle's ultra-durable New Gen Ladder Frame platform, embodying the ‘GO FAR’ aspirations that define this Mahindra Pik Up. Its versatility and capability, enriched by cutting-edge technologies, signal a transformative shift in what a lifestyle pickup can be."

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
