Mahindra posted a total of 10,904 units in July 2020 as against 16,024 units with 32 per cent de-growth; finished fourth behind Maruti, Hyundai and Tata
Mahindra & Mahindra registered a total of 10,904 units in July 2020 as against 16,024 units during the same period last year with Year-on-Year de-growth of 32 per cent. The homegrown UV specialist ended up fourth in the overall manufacturers’ standings with a market share of 5.5 per cent.
The Bolero MUV’s consistency definitely deserves appreciation as it garnered 4,360 units to sit on top as the most sold model within Mahindra’s domestic range. In July 2019, the workhorse posted 4,446 units and thus resulted in a Year-on-Year volume decline of just 2 per cent last month.
Another long running product, the Scorpio SUV, came second with a total of 3,135 units as against 2,864 units with 9 per cent positive sales increase. The XUV300 compact SUV made its local debut in February 2019 and it has been decently received among domestic customers. The sub-four-metre SUV is based on the X100 platform as the SsangYong Tivoli.
