Mahindra launched the Sankalp program on a day of awareness, National Safety Day, on 4th of March. The highlight of the program is to promote all round road safety. The company will provide necessary equipments such as protective helmets, florescent jackets lined with reflective tapes and nose masks. The initial part of Sankalp program will cater to more than 600 police officials who are on duty from Worli sea link to Dahisar region in Mumbai. The second part will witness a similar number of officials, but the area is varied from Worli-Church Gate. To ensure that the police officials are not constantly exposed to pollution, nose masks will be changed every fifteen days.

Sankalp initiative is an all round development process, and Mahindra aims to improve infrastructure with clean washrooms, drinking water and also solar lamps for enhanced night vision. The police force in India is exposed to enormous levels of pollution, and most of the time masks are not provided. Mahindra has launched an excellent initiative called Sankalp to ensure that policemen are protected from the hazards of pollution with rolling out of masks which will be changed every fifteen days.

The traffic scene in India is chaotic, and policemen are not aware of the dangerous consequences of exposure to pollution. India does not have a standard occupational health hazard monitoring team as observed in first world nations. Mahindra has taken on a beneficial initiative called Sankalp to educate police forces on the importance of road safety.

The shortage of infrastructure in India is a serious issue, and Mahindra has taken up this concern seriously. The hygiene levels in India are unsatisfactory with few provisions of public toilets. Mahindra under Sankalp will introduce a better washroom infrastructure. The company has launched core programs under Sankalp essential for development of the country. This might be a step towards progress in infrastructure and hygiene in India.

On the launch of Sankalp, Chief Police Officer in Automotive and Farm Equipment Sector of Mahindra and Mahindra commented, ‘’the streets of Mumbai are packed with traffic and the ability of the police to tackle traffic is among the best in India. The police forces in Mumbai have to handle thousands of vehicles, vehicular pollution, heat and noise. The handling of nose masks and improvement of infrastructure will elevate the efficiency and experience of police personals. ‘’

Sankalp is an excellent initiative to educate the police force on the importance of environmental hazard safety, and also a step towards the progression of hygiene and infrastructure. Let’s hope the program will send a message to officials to take safety measures, and the authorities will work towards the implementation of risk assessment in environmental safety sector in the near future.

He met up with students from (NID) National Institute of Design, and said, ‘’the current age solely lies on newer discoveries of the digital technology world like software industries, which is taking over the earlier dominant conceptual world.’’

Technology has progressed rapidly over the past years, and everyday there is a new discovery being made, the pace is much faster than what it was years ago. There is massive progress in every department, from storytellers, to designers, inventors, artists, engineers, health professionals who are winning tremendous acclaim since everyday is a new beginning.

Mahindra Reva was firm about its e20 export strategies, and in 2013 November, about 12% of the vehicles were rolled out in Norway, the e20 is transported to Nepal and Bhutan as well. A powerful electric make like e20 is the solution for Bhutan’s aim to lower oil imports.

Electric cars might appear to be costly ventures, but consumers can save chunks on fuel which is a boon today with the constant increase in fuel rates. The advancement of hybrid and electric vehicles are a bonus to the society. Few years from now roads might be filled with hybrid and electric models.

On the back, there is a shortened door to probably fit in an extra wheel; the 2017 camouflaged Scorpio does not have a back bumper. From the absence of rear bumper, car enthusiasts suspect that it is 4×4 variant, and there are no indications of the possibilities of rear wheel drive car. Just like XUV500, the 2017 Scorpio might be tailored with monocoque chassis.

Scorpio has yielded heaps of profits for Mahindra; it has been over ten years post the launch of the car, and the company has sold about four lakh pieces of the car.

Mysterious Mahindra test model thought to be the all new Bolero

The spy shutterbugs are always in action. However, the auto companies also try their best to camouflage their upcoming vehicle to keep them from getting all revealed before the right time and spoil the suspense. Such a mysterious test vehicle from the house of Mahindra & Mahindra has been spotted testing near the Indian auto major’s Research & Development centre located in Chennai.

Mahindra all new Bolero 001

The spotted Mahindra vehicle however, could not be specified as to which model it is exactly. It is certainly not the new refreshed Scorpio that has been caught testing a number of times. It is also not the previously spied upcoming S101 compact SUV. The spied vehicle is a completely different vehicle. The spied test mule has been spotted with no back bumper, while its tail gate was seen to have a steel box on it. The still unidentified Mahindra vehicle is thought to be the all new Bolero.

The very boxy design of the sports utility vehicle (SUV) rather speaks that it might be the all new Mahindra Bolero. The spy pictures of the vehicle’s side profile reveal that the vehicle is a big boxy looking tough SUV that has a comparatively small bonnet. The front fascia of the vehicle seems to be inspired by the premium SUV Mahindra XUV500.

The rear profile of the car that was caught by the spy camera also shows that it might be developed on a ladder frame chassis. The wheelbase of this vehicle is much longer suggesting that the all new Bolero will have a greater space inside. However, the vehicle seems to a little shorter in length that are churning out speculations that the all new Bolero could be a compact under 4-metre SUV. However, this is also not possible, as this will also require an engine capacity of up to 1.5 liters. This will not be proper for a SUV that is meant for heavy duty work in various terrains and the rural areas of India. Thus it is hard to say whether, the model is actually that of the all new Bolero or not, as the Bolero is iconic for its heavy duty performance and it is immensely preferred by the Indian fleet operators and travel industry.

The Indian auto major and utility vehicle leader Mahindra & Mahindra launched its very popular Bolero back in the year 2000. Ever since the rough and tough Bolero has been having a very successful market existence even after 14 long years, during which the vehicle only got some facelifts.

The Bolero is a bestselling SUV model from the house of Mahindra & Mahindra and even though it never lost its charm for the consumers, the company started working on the next generation model of the SUV to enhance its customer appeal and to beat the increased market competition in India.
