Mahindra Komodo 4×4 is the handiwork of Indian designer and IED Torino graduate, Makrand Patil. Patil has designed this rugged SUV taking into perspective the demands from buyers in India and Indian road conditions. He has come up with this massive off-roader that is built for the young adventurer, sports enthusiast or the staid family guy.

Mahindra Komodo is both rugged and well-appointed. Photos of Komodo have been displayed by Patil who worked in collaboration with Mahindra while at IED.

He has drawn inspiration from the authentic Mahindra DNA which is seen on board existing models such as the Scorpio and XUV500 while the most challenging part to get the right blend of design between a luxury SUV and a rugged off-roader.

Mahindra has been noted for naming its SUVs ending with an ‘O’ and hence the name Komodo which means ‘Comfort’ in Italian seem the right choice for the model.



Here’s what Patil has to say about the concept:

“What I present is an SUV built for the Indian Market. The user could be anyone from a young to a mid-age individual who is in his own business or could just be a son, a family guy to a sport enthusiast.”

“The built of the car is big, strong, rugged and luxurious at the same time. Perfect for the Indian terrain. The vehicle can be used anywhere form silky smooth highways to steep gradients, big drops and deep water. Focusing more on its off-roading abilities, a true 4×4 vehicle that a whole family can enjoy.”

“This SUV has been designed considering most of the brand attributes of Mahindra. The brand sets a benchmark of Capability, Authenticity in design and function. It specializes in Durability and Reliability for the Indian market having a justified evolution.”

“My dream was to combine the authentic Mahindra DNA with its more evolved ones and make the Ultimate Mahindra. The Mahindra KOMODO.”
