In fact, the XUV500 created a huge wave of interest and appreciation among the SUV buyers of India, immediately after its launch owing to its lavish exterior design. The bling loving style conscious Indian car buyers instantly got impressed with the Mahindra XUV500’s extravagant visual appeal, though some critics think that the design is a bit over the top. Moreover, despite its lavish design and an array of premium features, the XUV500 comes with much affordable pricing as compared to its market rivals, which ensures greater sales.

The Mahindra XUV500 is a cent percent India made SUV model that was fully developed at the world class research and development facility of the company that is called the Mahindra Research Valley (MRV) located in Chennai. Ever since its market launch, the vehicle has added a new glam factor to the entire Mahindra range of vehicles with its premium and exuberant styling, whole range of advanced features and strong performance.

At present Mahindra & Mahindra is busy with the various things related to the imminent launch of its upcoming new mini crossover model that is still codenamed as the S101. The Mahindra S101 is expected to launch within this year, while speculations have it that it might launch before Diwali this year order to make the most of the festive season. The S101 which is a long awaited and highly speculated new launch from Mahindra and many names are doing the rounds such as the XUV100, KUV100 and CUV100, though none of it has been yet confirmed by the company. It will be a sub-4 meter vehicle with the seating capacity of 6 occupants and is expected to launch with a very aggressive price tag.

On the other hand, Mahindra is betting big on the newly launched Mahindra TUV300 compact SUV model. The Indian utility vehicle leader is expecting to get considerable amount of sales boost after the launch of this all new SUV, especially as the festive season is just round the corner.

The Mahindra TUV300 is a tough looking baby SUV with under 4-meters of length. It is Mahindra first brand new vehicle in the last few years, and is the first compact SUV model from the company that has been built from ground up.

Mahindra is also preparing to launch many more brand new modes in the new future.

New Mahindra TUV300 is a tough warrior in the market price war

Homegrown SUV master, Mahindra & Mahindra recently launched its highly awaited TUV300 compact sports utility vehicle model in India with an aggressive starting tag of Rs. 6.9 lakh, while the range topping model is priced at Rs. 8.4 lakhs.

tuv300 mahindra

The TUV300 is the first brand new vehicle launch by Mahindra & Mahindra in last few years, and it is being bated on by the company to boost the slacking sales rates. Launched just prior to this year’s festive season in India, the brand new Mahindra TUV300 has made market competition even more intense with its highly competitive price range.

The Indian compact SUV market is already a very competitive space, where all the car majors are fighting to gain a strong foothold. This particular segment is all the popular and competitive owing to the more affordable price point as compared against the full-sized SUV models in India. Now, the latest entrant Mahindra TUV300 is certainly here to make the competition even stiffer and eat into the demands of some of the popular compact SUV models.

Based on a new monocoque platform, the new Mahindra TUV300 comes with a conventional and aggressive design language with proper Mahindra DNA that should be praised by the Mahindra SUV lovers, if not all. The primary USP of this new baby SUV is certainly its price point which is much lower than its market competitors. Affordable pricing and tough reliable vehicles have been always the Indian car major’s specialty and the TUV300 is no different.

Mahindra is surely hoping that the new TUV300 will rake in good sales volumes and make it proud, and has kept a production capacity of 5000 units per month at its Chakan manufacturing facility, where this new baby SUV is being produced.

At present Mahindra & Mahindra is really in need of able new products in order to come out of its slacking sales situation that the Indian car major has been suffering for the last several quarters. However, Mahindra is readying up several new products to be launched in the future. Another brand new product, still codenamed as the S101 is all braced up to launch probably in this festive season itself. This is however, said to be a compact crossover and is expected to be priced even more aggressively.

The Indian utility vehicle leader invested Rs. 1,200 crore on the development of the new TUV300 including the changes in the Chakan facility to produce the vehicle, while the company’s suppliers invested another Rs. 300 crores. Thus, Mahindra is making more such huge investments in order to bring in more brand new vehicles.

The Mahindra TUV300 has the advantage of an AMT gearbox option that none of its rivals offer. The TUV300 has launched with a new diesel engine under its hood, while a petrol version could be offered at a later date, as Mahindra will soon venture into the petrol market with the S101’s launch later this year.

Upcoming new Mahindra S101 to get equipped with new 1.2 diesel and petrol motors

As Mahindra & Mahindra is gearing up to launch it’s long awaited and constantly speculated S101, the buzz regarding the brand new compact crossover is getting more intense. So far, there have been great speculations regarding the category of the new sub-4 meter vehicle and its actual official name. And while these speculations regarding the still codenamed Mahindra S101 continue, fresh rumors have it that the vehicle will get a new 1.2 liter diesel engine.

While it has been confirmed that the new upcoming Mahindra S101 will be launching in both petrol and diesel versions and will be getting powered by a newly developed 1.2 liter petrol engine, its diesel motor was not confirmed. So far, it was widely believed that the S101 will be getting a 1.5 liter diesel mill, most probably the one that powers the newly launched Mahindra TV300. However, as per the latest reports the new S101 will be equipped feature a new 1.2 liter diesel as well as a 1.2 liter petrol engine, while no 1.5 liter diesel motor would be on offer.

An automotive portal claims that company sources revealed that the soon to launch Mahindra S101 will pack in 1.2 diesel and petrol motors. While the S101’s petrol motor is a newly developed engine that will mark Mahindra’s entry into the petrol vehicle market, the 1.2 liter diesel motor is thought to be dwindled version of the TUV300’s 1.5 liter mHawk diesel mill.

It is also pretty much certain by now, that the new upcoming Mahindra S101, won’t be a compact hatchback as some rumors say and will actually be a sub-4 meter crossover which Mahindra’s patent tough SUV DNA. The S101 will be 6-seater small crossover that the company will be presenting as a micro-SUV model. Owing to its small size, the S101 post its official market launch will not only challenge the likes of the Ford EcoSport compact crossover, but also popular hatchback models such as the Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, which will fall in the similar price bracket. This means that Mahindra & Mahindra is planning to price the S101 very aggressively in the range of around Rs. 4.5 lakhs.

The brand new upcoming Mahindra S101 is built on a new monocoque chassis, which will make it tough. The vehicle will get a 3+3 seating configuration featuring a bench type front seat to offer more space. The S101 is also expected to offer great safety features including 4 airbags, anti-lock braking system along with electronic brake-force distribution system and electronic stability Programme.

This new upcoming sub-4 meter mini-SUV is also likely to arrive with an AMT gearbox option. The still codenamed S101’s actual name has also been a highly speculated and debated one. While some reports say that the S101 will be christened as the XUV100, others say that it will be called the KUV100, while others still say it will be known as the CUV100. Whatever be the name, we hope to see the actual Mahindra S101 soon in the showrooms.

Mahindra introduces eCommerce site to sell its vehicles

Indian Industrial major Mahindra group is actively expanding its ecommerce business, as it launches a new ecommerce portal to sell all its products as well as services. The new Mahindra online shopping website is called the M2all, and the portal will be offering all the Mahindra products as well as services on sale.

Mahindra M2All

As per the reports, M2all has already got into action and the interested buyers can book the newly launched Mahindra TUV300 compact SUV online. Apart from offering all Mahindra vehicle models for sale online, this new portal will also be tagging other manufacturers and sellers to offer ‘complementary’ products on sale such as car accessories, helmets, biking gear, etc. The list of sellers is expected to increase with time.

To begin with, Mahindra & Mahindra has partnered with CCAvenue for the payments on this new online shopping store.

For now, 5 of Mahindra group’s 31 brands are available on this virtual store, while all other remaining brands of the company will be added within the next 2 years. The online store currently employs 10 people and has plans to hire many more people. This new platform is also planned to come under a new company under the group that will be called the Mahindra e-Market, a fully owned subsidiary of Mahindra & Mahindra. The platform at present lists 400 of Mahindra’s products as well as services, out of which more than 40 are Mahindra vehicles, bikes, real estate, and gensets, all of which can be booked or ordered online and will be delivered to the customer with the help of authorized Mahindra vehicle dealers, distributors or logistics partners.

However, as Mahindra expands its own ecommerce business it has no plans to terminate its partnership with other imminent online shopping portals such as its association with Flipkart and Snapdeal, and this will continue. The newly launched M2all will also offer the Mahindra Group companies’ as well other sellers’ e-commerce technology including payment integration, online catalog management, digital marketing, data analytics, etc. With such huge fields of operations and sales offering, the M2all is surely expected to be a new company of its own under the vast and ever expanding Mahindra umbrella.

In the month of February, Mahindra’s retail wing had acquired the popular baby products’ website BabyOye. In last December, Mahindra Partners were reporded to be negotiating with Nest Childcare Services that operates Babyoye in order to acquire the company. Finally Mahindra acquired the portal for an undisclosed amount and announced in March, that Mahindra’s entire e-commerce business would be integrated into Babyoye.com.

Mahindra Retail already had its presence in the Indian retail market through the popular and widespread outlets of Mom&Me chain. Now, the chain’s online store momandmeshop.in will be discontinued by the company, as the entire business has been integrated with Babyoye.com. Mahindra has plans to add 50 new outlets of its Mom&Me brand stores in the physical market by the next financial year.

Thus, the Indian SUV leader is all ready to expand vastly in the ecommerce and retail markets of India.

Mahindra & Mahindra venturing into petrol SUV category

Indian utility vehicle leader, Mahindra & Mahindra has been a diesel centric car manufacturer and its utility vehicles so far have been offered as diesel only models. However, now the homegrown auto giant has decided to expand its domain into the petrol vehicle category as well. The diesel vehicles are anticipated to lose their charm as economical vehicles, as the diesel cost difference with petrol is fast reducing. On the other hand, petrol cars are still preferred for better refinement and low maintenance costs as compared to the diesel vehicles. Thus, Mahindra is not willing to take any chances and wishes to become as proficient in making petrol cars as it is in the diesel front. Moreover, the homegrown SUV master has also been suffering low sales for some time, and it thinks one of the reasons behind it is the disappearing love for the diesel vehicles that the Indian buyers are known for.

Shillong Great Escape - Mahindra

Mahindra & Mahindra has now officially announced that the company will be offering petrol engines in all their SUV models in the coming few years, which means that all the future Mahindra SUVs will be available in both petrol and diesel choices. The petrol engine choices will be available in a range of various displacements. Mahindra will be developing the new petrol engines in collaboration with its South Korean subsidiary SsangYong Motor.

In the near future, Mahindra & Mahindra will be offering a range of three petrol engines to begin with. The smallest of this new petrol engine family will be a 1.2 liter mill that will be in built in accordance to the parameters set by the Indian government for the sub 4-meter vehicle in order to get excise benefits.

This new 1.2 liter petrol engine from Mahindra will surely be doing the duty under the hood of the new upcoming Mahindra S101 compact vehicle that is expected to launch soon in India. This engine is also expected to be available in the new TUV300 as well as the Quanto at a later date. Mahindra would be launching more compact SUV models that will house this newly developed compact petrol engine.

The other petrol engines will be of bigger displacements, namely a 1.6 liter and a 2.0 liter unit which will be powering the likes of the Mahindra Scorpio and the XUV500 premium SUV. The 1.6 liter engine is the same petrol mill that has just debuted under the hood of the new SsangYong Tivoli in the European car market. The top of the range 2.0 liter engine will be possibly fitted in the Mahindra XUV500 and is likely going to be turbocharged to offer more power.

Mahindra has only tried its hands in the petrol domain once back in the year 2003, when Mahindra Scorpio first debuted. The new Indian SUVs are now increasingly launching with petrol engines going against the traditional SUVs that usually used to be powered only by diesel engines. Going by the latest trend, Mahindra is also ready to offer petrol SUVs.

Mahindra planning to launch Ssangyong Tivoli SUV in India

Homegrown SUV master, Mahindra & Mahindra has began its new model launch attack on its home market. The Indian UV major has recently launched its much awaited Mahindra TUV300 compact SUV model, which is expected to be followed with the launch of a slew of other brand new vehicles in the coming months. Mahindra is now said to be soon launching two more SUV models namely the TUV500 and the codenamed S101 in the domestic car market of India. It has come to light that car manufacturing company is also contemplating to introduce the new SsangYong Tivoli SUV model in India.

Ssangyong Tivoli

The SsangYong Tivoli which is already on sale in the Korean market is thus now has the probability of launching in the Indian car market if everything goes well.

In the international car markets, the SsangYong Tivoli rivals with the other SUV models such as the Renault Duster and the Skoda Yeti. This Korean vehicle is equipped with a 1.6 liter naturally aspirated petrol motor and a choice of a 1.6 liter diesel mill. While the petrol mill is capable of generating a max power output of 124 bhp, the diesel motor delivers a max power of 113 bhp. The engines are mated to the transmission gearbox options include a 6 speed manual as well as a 6 speed automatic transmission gearbox. The SUV is offered for sale in the market in both front wheel and all 4 wheel drive systems.

It is thought that if Mahindra really brings in the SsangYong Tivoli in the domestic Indian car market, then the company will be equipping the vehicle with the newly developed 1.5 liter mHawk80 diesel mill for this market, which has just got introduced under the hood of the brand new TUV300. This in-house developed diesel mill will help the Indian car major to keep the price of the Tivoli in check. For the SsangYong Tivoli however, the engine could be slightly tweaked by the company in order to generate more power.

The SsangYong Tivoli SUV is a sub-compact model with a length of 4.2 meter and if and when it launches in India, it might be positioned as an urban SUV model which can draw the interest of many prospective takers. As the very popular Mahindra Scorpio SUV gets more favors from the semi-urban and rural Indian buyers, the Tivoli could be the company’s right offering to draw the attention of the chic urban customers.

If Mahindra really brings in the SsangYong Tivoli to India, then the stylish bold SUV could to be placed in the space between the Scorpio and the XUV500 premium SUV. If and when launched in India, the SsangYong Tivoli will be pitched directly against the popular Renault Duster, Nissan Terrano, the recently launched and vastly successful Hyundai Creta and the recently launched Maruti S-Cross crossover.

Mahindra will have to price the Tivoli very carefully in India so as to avoid cannibalization of the sales of the popular Scorpio and the XUV500. If launched in India, the SsangYong Tivoli will be the second vehicle in India from Mahindra’s Korean subsidiary SsangYong after the SsangYong Rexton.

Mahindra banking big on the TUV300 to boost sales

Home grown UV leader, Mahindra & Mahindra is hoping it’s bogged down sales situation to change with the newly launched Mahindra TUV300. The Indian auto major is banking big on the brand new TUV300 and hoping that it will get good market that should boost its sales.

Mahindra TUV300

Mahindra & Mahindra has been bowed down with plummeting sales for quite some time now, and with the fast approaching festive season, the manufacturer is hoping to revive its sales. The Mahindra TUV300 has been also strategically launched just prior to this year’s festive season in order to take full advantage of the positive spirit of the Indian car buyers during this time period.

The Indian car market is fast expanding and is witnessing great growth in the SUV segment, especially in the compact and sub-compact SUV segments. As Mahindra did not have an able compact SUV model other than the Quanto which is actually the slashed down Xylo, it is thought that Mahindra has been losing ground to its market rivals. Mahindra is thus now hoping that its new TUV300 would be able to turn around its present situation and salvage sales considerably.

The utility vehicle segment of the Indian auto industry is really on the high and the Indian car buyers now increasingly prefer SUV and MPV models rather than the usual ever popular hatchback models. Given to this changed preference of the Indian customers, all the auto majors operating in the country are eyeing the Utility Vehicle market of India and some of them have also launched their new representatives in the market recently. For example, India’s second largest car maker Hyundai has launched the Creta compact crossover recently, while soon after it the country’s auto industry leader Maruti Suzuki has launched its S-Cross crossover. Interestingly, both Maruti and Hyundai are popular and known for their quality hatchback and sedan offering and SUVs or crossovers are really not considered their strong points at least in India. On the other hand, Mahindra & Mahindra had always been the company SUV master whose vehicles vouch for sturdiness and brute power. Thus, it is natural for Mahindra to brace itself to reinstate its ultimate domination on its home market’s SUV segment, as competition is getting really tough here.

The new Mahindra TUV300 is now available for sale at all Mahindra dealerships across the country at a starting price of Rs. 7.12 lakh (ex-showroom, Chandigarh). The company says that the new sub-4 meter SUV has a battle tank inspired design along with bold and stylish design elements. It has imposing stance and an array of comfort features to make it a really attractive buy. Among other SUV models, the Mahindra TUV300 is locking its horns with Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster.

Mahindra’s forte lies in traditional full sized SUV models such as the Scorpio, XUV500 and the likes, but it is now bracing itself to be a compact UV specialist as well and readying up to launch another compact vehicle codenamed the S101. For the time being, Mahindra is banking big on the TUV300.

Mahindra TUV300 complete accessories list

The newly launched Mahindra TUV300 Compact SUV comes with all the good things including an aggressive tradition SUV design, competitive pricing and good features that should draw the interest of the SUV lovers in India. This latest entrant in the much coveted compact SUV space in India has already pressed the danger button for many older SUV models in the segments. Though it is still early to say that the new Mahindra TUV300 is a great success in the Indian car market, the new baby SUV surely seems to be capable of generating quite great sales.

mahindra tuv300 accessories

The Mahindra TUV300 is a sub-4 meter compact SUV which could offer the attractive price owing to the excise duty benefits that it enjoys from the government because of its small size. However, despite its compact size, the TUV300 offers the benefit of being a 7-seater with two facing jump seats at the rear, which should attract some additional takers for whom seating capacity is a deciding factor.

Under the hood, the Mahindra TUV300 gets equipped with a new 3 pot, 1493 cc diesel mill which generates 84 bhp of power at 3750 rpm and 230 Nm of torque at 1500-2250 rpm.
