In November 2020, Mahindra Bolero retailed a total of 6,055 units, becoming the most popular vehicle in the company range yet again
Mahindra & Mahindra has enjoyed a decent sales growth in India, with over 18 thousand units sold in November 2020. The company posted a Year-on-Year (YoY) growth of 24.4 per cent, which is quite significant, but on a Month-on-Month (MoM) basis, sales dropped by almost 2 per cent. Mahindra Bolero managed to be the best-selling UV in the homegrown carmaker’s lineup, with 6,055 units sold in November 2020.
Interestingly, the Bolero was also the best-selling model in Mahindra’s range during the month prior to that, i.e., in October 2020, with 7,624 units. This translates to a negative MoM sales growth of 20.58 per cent this November. However, the Bolero managed to post a YoY growth of 18.10 per cent, with 5,127 units sold in November of last year.
In the MPV market space in India, the Mahindra Bolero held the second place, behind Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (9,557 units). The Ertiga has been the bestseller in this segment for quite a while now, with brilliant sales overall. That said, the Bolero’s sales have been extremely impressive as well, aided by its affordable price list and rugged nature.
