Speaking on the sales performance, Veejay Nakra, Chief Executive Officer, Automotive Division, M&M, said:
”More than 90% of our dealerships and workshops are now operational across the country. We have seen a significant increase in activity levels, inquiries and as a result, sales across our product portfolio. We sold 42983 vehicles overall and registered a growth of 91% in the Passenger Vehicles segment, over same period last year.”
Just as other manufacturers, Mahindra’s production is also affected by the semiconductor issues, and the brand is committed to sorting it as early as it could. Last month saw Mahindra introducing the Bolero Neo in the PV space while the Supro range of SCV’s offering higher mileage and payload were also launched in the domestic market.
The company says both the launches have gained a positive initial response amongst customers. Mahindra is gearing up to launch the XUV 700 next and its global debut is likely in the coming weeks before entering showrooms around October 2021.
The three-row SUV is based on a monocoque platform and it will be offered in 2.2-litre diesel and 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine options with manual and AT choices.
