General Motors India will expand its research and development (R&D) activities in India for which it will be hiring 400 more engineers by the end of this year, a top company official said in Mumbai on Sunday.

"We have plans to hire around 400 engineers in our dedicated technical centre in Bangalore and we would like the R&D facility here to grow," Karl Slym, President and Managing Director of General Motors India, told PTI.

This follows its plans to export vehicles out of India over next three to four years in the country.

The company is in the process of recruiting more engineers to look after every process including transmission, engines, hybrids and controls.

Over 700 engineers are already working at its power train design centre to support automatic transmission and advanced automotive design technologies at its local and global operations, Slym said.
