Anand Mahindra gifts 4-wheeler to Kerala man for modifying his auto into 3-wheeler ‘Scorpio’

Imitation is the best form of flattery, it is said.

In an age of brand consciousness where even the slightest form of imitation can land one behind bars, one Kerala resident was rewarded for his innovation – by none less than Anand Mahindra, the man at helm of Mahindra Group.

In March, one user Anil Panicker tweeted to Mahindra a photo of a three-wheeler, apparently a Piaggio Ape, whose rear had been modified into a rear of the Mahindra Scorpio.

An impressed Mahindra decided to buy out the auto-rickshaw for the company museum and offered the owner a four-wheeler in exchange of a three wheeler.

Within three days, the owner Sunil was located in Tiruvalla town of Kerala’s Pathanamthitta district.

On Wednesday, Mahindra tweeted a photo of Sunil with his rickshaw as well as a brand new Supro, the company’s small commercial four-wheeler.
