Bengaluru, Nov 30: Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, both of whom share a common interest in automobiles futurism, tech, space and other mandatory geek subjects, recently had an exchange of ideas on Twitter.

The Mahindra Group Mahindra has also been in talks with Musk to enter the Indian market in order to capitalise on the much-promised boom in the electric vehicle (EV) segment in the country.
