Mahindra & Mahindra Set to Shine as Indians Upgrade to Bigger Vehicles

The Indian car market is facing its worst low sale landslide in ten years, the vehicle buying power reduced to a vast extent. Even vehicles that sold in dozens for years had very few takers. Mahindra and Mahindra is among the esteemed firms to flow with the depression tide.

Mahindra XUV500

Mahindra XUV500

Mahindra’s specialty is utility vehicles; there are probably only a handful of sedans, electric cars and hatchbacks. Markets have shown signs of revival, evident with the profits noted by some firms in May 2014 and the trend has flown over to June. Although there have been signs of market recuperation, the weak economy disease has not vanished completely. Mahindra made marginal gains in 2014 June and sold 38,471 pieces higher than 38,092 units rolled out in the corresponding year.

Mahindra’s venture into a single core segment is a risk in current and long time; the public is so fascinated with Mahindra cars that they don’t ask for more than a SUV. Analysts also feel the demand for its vehicles is just going to strengthen in the near future. Most of us would believe so taking into consideration the sudden surge in SUV launches.

The auto industry went through peak sale shrinkage mode for 16 months, the month of May and June has been somewhat fruitful. The flow of passenger vehicles in May is 2.7% and in June it is 13%. The spike in figures from May to June is an indication of vast improvements in purchasing power. The government of India imposed the excise duty concession in Feb that was supposed to last till the 30th of June. The Finance Minister of India Arun Jaitley made a statement saying the policy will be extended till the 31st of December. The fear of termination has gathered an overwhelming number of customers into showrooms and it is gathered in movement of passenger vehicles in June.

The country banks on convalescing economy and pro-business approach of Narendra Modi. The trust on new economy hope has sent myriad of people to test drive and buy new cars. Even with small shadows of silver lining, the auto market is a long route away from complete recovery. The problem is macro-economic, inflation is a huge issue. In June (CPI) Consumer Price Index rose to 7.3% and (WPI) whole sale price index stormed to 5.43%. The cause for increase is increased fuel rates and lower than desired monsoons. Customers are unable to depend on loans because of the high interest rates, and are a discouragement to growth in banking and auto sector; about three quarters of the population depend on loans.

If inflation is at a stubborn high and interest rates have risen to new levels, what is the perception behind the possible admirable profit outcomes for SUV’s? The primary reason can be attributed to India’s economic diversity, SUV’s sold like wildfire since March and the profit outcome was a significant 17% during the year-over-year May to June period.

India’s rich economy has grabbed every possible opportunity to buy SUV cars, and is not affected by high interest rates as stated by LMC automotive Limited. Mahindra’s future growth appears fruitful with new interesting launches, such as new Scorpio facelift, new Bolero and S101. Scorpio facelift costs Rs 8.3 to 13 lakhs, and S101 is expected to cost Rs 6 to 8.5 lakhs.

The company is working on a small petrol engine as well, the due launch date is sometime in 2015. The most spoken about arch rival of S101 is Ford EcoSport, the competition is just going to get hotter and hotter, and Mahindra’s design outline for S101 is to obtain a tall sub four meter SUV that would kind of resemble a small hatch. A similar strategy is visible on EcoSport.

The development of S101 draws inspiration from the peak grandeur effect of XUV500. It is only the final development stages and car buffs have already discovered that the car has XUV500 identities. Mahindra is an unbeatable figure in SUV market, the power of the vehicles is seen in the rigorous off-road adventures. Its fiercest auto rival is Tata Motors.

The Indian Air Force was tapped by the CAG for the “irregularities” in buying of over 100 units of the expensive Mahindra Scorpio as well as Toyota Innova vehicles going against the procurement stipulation orders to replace the ageing existing vehicles.

mahindra scorpio

Mahindra Scorpio

In a report prepared and presented at the parliament earlier this month, the government auditor has said that it has been observed that breaching the extant orders from the government, Air Force headquarters had gone ahead two new types of vehicles, namely the Mahindra Scorpio SUV and the Toyota Innova MPV in the time period between the years 2009 and 2011 to replace the old vehicles of the department that consist of the Maruti Gypsy and the Tata Sumo respectively.

The report further explained that the Indian Air Force (IAF) had acquired 100 units of the Scorpio vehicles at a cost of a whopping Rs. 7.78 crore and the “irregularities were evident in the procurement of these new Mahindra vehicles.

The government report stated that the much popular Mahindra Scorpio SUV was introduced in the IAF headquarters in replacement of the ageing Maruti Suzuki Gypsy which was actually not required, as new Gypsy models can very well be procured as the vehicle is very well in production and has not become unnecessary in its services. Moreover, the IAF has itself accepted the fact, that the Mahindra Scorpio is more expensive from every aspect of price tag, maintenance as well as operational costs as compared against the previously used Maruti Suzuki Gypsy.

The CAG stated that the acquirement of these vehicles was certainly against the procurement manual provisions, as IAF did not clearly specified the needs or the basis on which the Maruti Gypsy was replaced by the more expensive Mahindra Scorpio. Keeping in view of the needs of new vehicles by IAF provisions were allotted to it, but on which basis the brand of the vehicles were changed is not stated by IAF, neither it has been evaluated on the basis of specifications or costs of the vehicles.

On the other hand, there is a discrepancy on the matter of the Toyota Innova procurement by the IAF as well. The CAG said that the IAF procured 19 Innova units for the usage in Su-30 MKI combat aircraft squadrons and the units situated at the hill stations at the cost of Rs. 1.19 crore.

It was observed that there was no shortage of similar vans. Moreover, there was an excess of 88 alike vehicles against authorization. The IAF had not allotted any of the 19 Innova’s to the units for which the vehicles were stated to have been procured. The vehicles were allotted to some other units, again breaching the Defense Ministry orders.

The CAG rejected IAF’s claims that the vehicles were obtained to transfer sensitive electronic apparatus and similar things.

The Indian Air Force was reproached by the auditor for not outsourcing the vehicle requirements for officers of the Group Captain rank and below by which it could save Rs. 1.95 crore.
