Mahindra & Mahindra today said it will jointly invest USD 900 million (nearly Rs 4,927 crore) with its Korean subsidiary SsangYong Motor Company to develop products over the next four years.

"We will be investing USD 900 million in four years for development of products jointly with SsangYong," M&M President, Automotive and Farm Equipment Sectors, Pawan Goenka said today.

This is apart from Rs 5,000 crore investment the company has planned for a three year time period ending 2014, he added.

When asked about how the company plans to raise finances for the joint investment, Goenka said the expenditure to be incurred in next one and one-and-a-half years will be a mix of fresh equity, debt and from internal accruals.
