MUMBAI, India, January 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

- Link to press release and photo on internet:

- Photo Caption:  Mr. Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group and Mr. S.P. Shukla, President - Group Strategy and Chief Brand Officer, Mahindra Group and Member of the Group Executive Board unveiling the  new visual identity of the Mahindra Group which will be reflected across all its businesses globally from January 2013

India's USD 15.9 billion Mahindra Group, one of the country's leading business houses with a global presence in over 100 countries, today welcomed the arrival of the New Year with a fresh new visual identity which will be reflected across all its businesses globally.

"The Mahindra Group has grown exponentially over the past decade, with businesses covering a wide range of industries. Hence, we felt the need to refresh our visual identity to better reflect a Mahindra that has evolved over the years and is ready to take on future challenges. Continuity and change have both been integral parts of Mahindra's growth story. Continuity has given us strength, stability and roots, while our desire for change has driven our growth and enabled us to thrive. Our new word mark clearly reflects both these attributes and is in sync with our Group aspiration which is to become one of the top 50 most admired global brands within a decade." said Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group, while commenting on the new brand identity.

"The new word mark and other elements of our refreshed visual identity have been adopted after extensive research and feedback. We wanted a word mark which would reflect the evolving nature of our organisation, our global outlook and progressive management style. In short, it should reflect the 'core' of Mahindra. We also had to ensure that it would have universal appeal across consumer and business segments in urban and rural areas, as well as overseas. We have tried to create a modern futuristic feel, while retaining the dependability, reliability and warmth associated with the Mahindra brand," said S.P. Shukla, President - Group Strategy and Chief Brand Officer, Mahindra Group and Member of the Group Executive Board.

The Mahindra logo now sports a new, hand drawn word mark which builds on the Group's heritage while infusing modernity and dynamism into the brand. It is a lot more contemporary, edgy and sleek and visually represents the changes the business is making to embrace and shape the future. It will also be depicted in the new'energetic red' colour, a deeper shade of the signature Mahindra red which is the primary colour connected with the brand.

A unique graphic element or 'Ridge' completes the new visual identity and will provide a uniform look to all communication and print collateral across the Group. Inspired by Mount Everest's ridges which lead to its summit, the Ridge is an integral element of the visual identity and symbolises the pathway to achieving one's potential and aspirations. As a graphic device, it ensures that our communication is united and easily identifiable. Moreover, it signals Rise and Mahindra's role as an enabler.

In addition to this, various colour combinations will be used to distinguish between the various businesses of the Group in order to create a sense of family identity for all Group companies, while ensuring that each business has an identity of its own. Corporate and mobility businesses will be all red, B2B businesses will be red-grey and B2C businesses will have different colour combinations.
