Mahindra finished third in the overall standings behind Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai as nearly 14,000 units were sold in September 2019
Mahindra & Mahindra had a decent showing in the month of September 2019 as 13,967 units were retailed against 19,942 units during the same month last year with YoY decline of 30 per cent. The largest UV manufacturer in the country finished as the best of the rest behind Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai.
Since late last year, Mahindra had introduced some significant products including the Marazzo, Alturas G4 and XUV300.
