Auto Expo 2010: Mahindra pulls out all stops

Mahindra & Mahindra, India's leading utility vehicle maker, is showcasing its entire portfolio of vehicles from two-wheelers to trucks, including 14 under-production vehicles and three concept vehicles at the Auto Expo 2010.

The vehicles on show include the Mahindra Rodeo, the Mahindra Duro and the Mahindra Flyte, along with a concept bike from Engines Engineering. Also on display are the hugely successful Gio, the Alfa Hydrogen Passenger, the Logan Tourer and the newly launched Maxximo, including its battery-operated model.

Taking pride of place in the over-2,000 sq m Mahindra pavilion is the iconic Scorpio in a new limited edition; India's leading UV, the Bolero; and the stylish Xylo. The entire range of commercial vehicles from the Mahindra Navistar stable has also been unveiled at the expo for the first time.

''The Auto Expo is the perfect platform to showcase Mahindra's commitment to technological advancements and innovative automotive solutions that are showcased in our gamut of vehicles from two wheelers to commercial vehicles,'' said Anand Mahindra, vice-chairman and managing director, Mahindra Group.

Pawan Goenka, president, automotive sector, Mahindra & Mahindra added, ''Over the years, the Indian Auto Expo has assumed global significance and for the first time, Mahindra will be unveiling and launching products at the expo. We are the only Indian automobile company to straddle the entire road transport ecosystem and will display our entire range of vehicles, including two-wheelers, utility vehicles, sports utility vehicles, light commercial vehicles and trucks.''

Mahindra is not usually associated with two-wheelers, a segment where it made its foray just last year. Now it has on show the Power Scooter range consisting of the Mahindra Rodeo, the Mahindra Duro and the Mahindra Flyte, as well as a concept bike created by Engines Engineering, the company's R&D partner.
