The Bolero MaXX Pik-Up series from Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) recently crossed a one lakh unit production milestone in India. By achieving this feat in a span of just 16 months, the homegrown carmaker has set a record in the commercial vehicle segment. The firm believes that the new MaXX Pik-Up City, which went on sale last year in August, made a significant contribution to the milestone. Besides, in April 2023, Mahindra unveiled a lineup of eight new models. In order to accommodate different payloads and cargo lengths, this range incorporated additional variants under the City range as well as the HD range. Since the Pik-Up range initially went on sale in 2001, according to Mahindra, more than two million units have been sold.
Sharing his views on the recent milestone, Nallinikanth Gollagunta, CEO, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said, "Achieving the 1 lakh production milestone in such a brief period is a clear reflection of the trust and confidence of our customers. Our clear focus on understanding and catering to the unique demands of the Indian market has helped us elevate the customer experience in the commercial vehicle segment. We look forward to delivering distinctive value to customers with a pick-up range that is both technologically advanced and highly versatile.”
