Mahindra Reva, a Bangalore, India-based company has joined a research consortium within Ohio State’s College of Engineering that focuses on transmission technologies and providing research opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students. The relationship with Mahindra began in 2013 when senior leadership in the College of Engineering visited the electric car manufacturer’s headquarters, followed by subsequent visits by Rajendra Singh, professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Singh’s relationship with Mahindra prompted the company to join the consortium formed by Ohio State’s Gear and Power Transmission Research Laboratory.
