Utility vehicle manufacturer Mahindra & Mahindra has signed an agreement with oil major Indian Oil Corporation to research alternative fuels and energy that may lead to the roll-out of India’s first hydrogen engine in the next two years.

The key areas of research will be bio-diesel and hydrogen with IOC doing the fuel research and Mahindra undertaking the implementation and testing.

The research is significant as a major oil company is investing in alternate fuel technology. Mahindra is the second major manufacturer after DaimlerChrysler to invest in bio-diesel technology and perhaps the first Indian manufacturer to be looking seriously at hydrogen power.

The two companies expect their first hydrogen powered engine to be running in two years.
