Gurpratap Boparai appointed as CEO of Mahindra’s Europe business | 2022

Boparai was instrumental in helping Skoda VW’s ‘India 2.0’ project. He resigned in December 2021.

Gurpratap Boparai joins Mahindra & Mahindra as CEO for the manufacturer’s automotive business in Europe, which includes Automobili Pininfarina and Peugeot Motorcycles. This information is according to the company’s internal memo that’s being circulated to inform employees about the appointment.

Early last month, Boprai had stepped down as the managing director of Skoda Volkswagen Auto India after successfully steering the Group’s ambitious India 2.0 programme for three years.

He managed the merger of three VW Group entities – Volkswagen India, Skoda Auto India and Volkswagen Group Sales India – to form SAVWIPL. VW Group’s 1 billion Euro ‘India 2.0’ project has also been executed under his leadership, giving rise to products like the Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun, with the Skoda Slavia and a VW sedan to follow in the coming months.

The smell of the leather seats, the sound of the throttle, and even light from outside—all affect your state of mind. That’s what makes a good car great.
