It will likely be followed by the new generation Scorpio in the final quarter of this financial year (January to March 2022 period). The second-generation Thar was launched last year in India and it has been well received amongst customers leading to Mahindra ramping up the production to meet the demand. It posted 1,065 units in the month of June 2021.
The XUV500 managed to garner a total of 633 units last month as against 231 units in June 2020 with 174 per cent YoY sales growth. The next generation XUV500 is expected only in early 2024 probably based on the re-engineered SsangYong Tivoli’s platform. The Marazzo finished in the sixth position with 402 unit sales while the flagship Alturas G4 recorded 16 units.
A single unit of the KUV NXT was sold last month. The electric versions of the XUV300 and KUV are suspected to debut in the near future as well. A recent roadmap that emerged on the internet indicates that a five-door Thar, new-gen XUV300 and Bolero are also in the works.
