Anand Mahindra took to X to share a video of a customised car that left him impressed. He also added that he is willing to invest in a startup that is thinking of making such a car. Why? The video he shared shows a vehicle designed specially for wheelchair-bound people.
It all started with a post shared by X user Massimo. “When a disabled user is ready to leave their car, this tech solution will bring their wheelchair to them. In between, it is safely stored in the weatherproof rooftop box. It’s a great solution for independent drivers as well as passengers,” the user wrote.
Anand Mahindra reshared the video on X. “Super smart & super useful design. Would fill me with pride if our vehicles could offer these fitments. But it’s hard for an auto OEM engaged in mass production to do. Need a startup engaged in customisation. I would willingly invest in such a startup,” he tweeted along with the video.

How did X users react to this car-related post?
“Correct, but what can be done is that while designing a new vehicle such considerations should be made and when a request for such setup is made OEM should be able to fit that without much effort. Having said that, I know it’s easier said than done !” wrote an X user. “Userful design,” added another. “It’s a brilliant idea,” posted a third.
