Applying alternative thinking to all aspects of its business operations, Mahindra Powerol broke the conventional box- shaped generator design to launch the first-of-its-kind and strikingly colourful leaf shaped diesel generators. These DG sets is available in five colour and graphic variants – Green, Blue, Yellow, Red and Grey.
At a press conference in Chennai, the new range was launched by Mr. Palaniappan, Sr. Vice President and Business Head – Powerol Business on the 23rd January ‘14.
The new leaf diesel generator has unique features like patented Leaf Shaped canopy design, visually impactful colors and graphic options, glossy finish powder coating, leaf shaped suction louvers. Apart from the design improvement, this diesel generator was also manufactured with a reduction in the total footprint (up to 0.4M³) and a reduction in the noise levels up to 2.5dBA.
The inception of this concept originated from the fact that due to poor aesthetics, customers generally placed the diesel generators in locations hidden from the public eye. Now, customers can proudly showcase their diesel generator in front of their homes and other outlets in the colour of their choice. Mahindra Powerol’s new leaf diesel generator will aim to lead the way in the power back up industry in which customers will consider at the aesthetic value of the diesel generator prior to its purchase.
The successful implementation of the Rise philosophy has opened up several roads for the Mahindra Powerol business. Powerol will continue to invoke the Rise pillars to search for and create new markets.

The concept of a new design came around by recognising the changing needs of the customer. Studies revealed that due to poor aesthetics, customers generally placed their diesel generators hidden from public view. It was then learnt that a diesel generator which would enhance the beauty of the site would far greatly appeal to the customer.
The initial designs were a result from a contest organised by us in the prestigious design institute NID, Ahmedabad. The in-house team enhanced the winning design before it was sent for volume production.
