The car was captured several times; the company is banking on the vehicle to attract impressive gains. There were insufficient buyers for Quanto, and the company fell into the traps of adverse effects of recession.

Mahindra S101 Interior caught during testing

The competition level in SUV market is at its peak, a fierce contender for S101 is Ford EcoSport. Mahindra is among the first to plunge into SUV market and has defined the true value of SUV’s. The other powerful home grown firm that has specialised in the aggressive SUV market is Tata Motors. The scenario has changed over the last few years; there has been a sudden surge in SUV market with the arrival of Volkswagen Taigun, Ford EcoSport and Renault Duster.

S101 will be built on the lines of ferocious competition, the prototype S101 car shows heavy camouflaging, and sources are of the view that it is going to be a stunner. The fashion layout is inspired by the grandeur of XUV500, and there are influential characteristics of Ford EcoSport, intensely visible on the front. The car has tints of non Mahindra drawings; the slatted grille is now substituted by a mesh like framework, the headlights take on an imaginative trapezoidal shape and the twin barrel apparatus looks classy. The huge front bumper is filled with twin gashes and in between the bumper and number plate there is a neat stretch of imaginative line. The other interesting features to look forward to is daytime running lights which at the moment appear hazy, and the other novel insertions are ribbed roof and clamshell bonnet, both are inspirations from XUV500.

S101 will be developed on joint partnership basis with Ssangyong, S101 has Korando identities sprinkled on the sides. The quarter window, a visible characteristic of Ssangyong and Mahindra vehicles will not be seen. The layout of S101 follows the pattern of hatchback, and the design of wheel arch will be simple yet elegant. Deep details on the fashion sculpting of the rear has not yet been exposed, the known information is the presence of arty slender tail lights and spare wheel.

The interiors paint an equally interesting story, the cabin room will be vast, and the uniqueness lies in the fitment of gear lever on centre console. The front seating arrangement is in 2+1 model, similar to the structure present on Datsun Go hatch. The petrol engines are fierce and small at the same time, and Ssangyong will assist with the development. The engines will move on four and three cylinder capacity. Sources say Mahindra many use another engine option which is pretty forceful, a mCR100 mill built with three cylinder 1.5 litre capacity also used on Quanto.

There are so many interesting elements incorporated into S101, it is startling and confusing at the same time. It certainly has new unheard of surprise elements and will represent auto décor in new light. The car might be called XUV300, and the duel launch date is early 2015 and the expected price will fit into the below Rs 6 lakh mark.

Net profit value of Mahindra narrower than predicted

Mahindra and Mahindra an acclaimed Indian based auto manufacturer noted a 4.12% sale dip in 2014 July. The company has produced power packed SUV’s that are recognized on Indian and overseas soil. Mahindra has fallen into the traps of weak market, although it has noted lower than year ago sales, the net profit decline is narrower than predicted by analysts.

The net profit yield dipped to 6% with revenue capacity of 8.82 billion rupees ($143.67) million during the April to June. The revenue value attained in the year ago period is 9.38billion. The obtained net loss is significantly lower than anticipated, analysts predicted net profit value of 8.36 billion rupees.

Mahindra’s growth structure was not very commendable in the April to June quarter. The passenger vehicle department reported a 12% dip; the main spoiler is the fuming competition. The past few years has witnessed a surge in SUV market visible in the popularity levels of Ford EcoSport, Volkswagen Taigun and Renault Duster. The new launches over the years has churned customer glares, Duster, Taigun and EcoSport are draped with modern SUV language and has overpowered the conventional sheen observed in Mahindra vehicles.

The tractor sales of Mahindra Group recorded a 1% dip, the not so favorable monsoons is the reason for lower than desired sales. Monsoon is a crucial sale attraction component, if the monsoons continue to remain insufficient; it will have an adverse effect on customer sentiment and inflation. The movement of economy growth is a major growth determining factor.

The past two years was not too favorable for the Indian auto sector, for two continuous years the profit level remained stagnant. It was only in the month of May that signs of revival were visible; the trend continues to remain steady in June and July. Although the economy faced an adverse period, analysts predict a 5 to 10% growth in current fiscal that starts from April. Companies are banking on business pro sentiment of Narendra Modi to push profits and enhance customer sentiment.

Mahindra has sustained its losses effectively; the net sale decline is lower than the figure projected by analysts. The company has brought out the core value of SUV, visible in the power and sportiness of XUV500, Scorpio, Bolero and Quanto. The competition is on the mountain top, and it is going to be a challenging phase for Mahindra, the battle is not just restricted to current SUV products but upcoming ones as well. Hyundai is geared to introduce ix25 compact SUV and Maruti Suzuki will launch its first ever XA Alpha SUV next year.

Mahindra is in tune with the rapidly changing consumer desirable levels; its new launches will come with surprise elements. The first on the list is new Scorpio facelift, and is a modern twist of the past. The outline of the vehicle is the same, the exteriors and cabin will undergo solid makeover. The other forthcoming vehicles areS101, it is an interesting launch; it has characteristics of a hatchback and crossover. The new Bolero is 2016 model and it too is a contemporary variant of the past.

A new classy re-worked Xylo coming soon

Mahindra seems to be on a refreshment spree, so much attention is centered on its upcoming re-worked Scorpio and Bolero car. The latest buzz reveals the company is working on new Xylo, and the re-worked elements are improved suspension and design modifications.

Mahindra Xylo Facelift

Mahindra is a powerhouse in utility market, some of its stellar products are XUV500, Scorpio, Bolero, Xylo and Quanto. Xylo is in the utility vehicle hit list. The public has forgotten about the vehicle lately and it has not attracted sufficient sales. Sources say the vision behind Mahindra’s new Xylo car is to revisit its lost profits, which is slowly vanishing with so many launches happening in a short time span.

Mahindra managed to roll out only 13,961 units of Xylo, a 44.3% dip, Xylo has not seen many buyers in 2014, in Jan alone there were only 980 takers for the vehicle and last month only 323 units were rolled out. The new Xylo will come in an all new package, the décor theme is beige and black, seat upholstery and instrument cluster are new, the third row seats will have 60:40 split capacity, and the second compartment will have superior lumbar support. The exterior modifications are artistically styled tail gate filled with solid chrome layer, and body graphics.

The company launched the updated Xylo in 2013 with potent mHawk 2.2 liter four cylinder engine that produces 280Nm and 120bhp. The engine outline is the same and most of the improvements are seen in suspension unit. A new Xylo car sounds interesting, and the upcoming one is a greater stunner of the past, the cosmetic modifications appear interesting and will be engineered to provide greater levels of grandeur, comfort and power. The expected price range is Rs 7.8 to 10.8 lakhs and the scheduled arrival period is end of 2014.

Mahindra is the first to conquer depths of utility vehicle market; its fiercest rival is Tata Motors. The company has defined the core value of SUV, the concern is the competition has gotten bigger and bigger with the influx of modern SUV’s like Ford EcoSport, Renault Duster, Volkswagen Taigun, and Nissan Terrano. The sudden surge of big vehicles has lost the enhanced customer sentiment values for Mahindra cars.

The auto market economy is just picking up after a two year long slump; Mahindra has not yet visited profits. The company noted a 4.12% sale dip; it is working on bringing back its lost power through its new launches. The first on the list is new Scorpio facelift. It is a revamped model of the past, the exteriors have undergone massive cosmetic treatment and the insides are lavish inspired by grandeur of XUV500. The company is working on new Bolero and it too will be a modern variant of the past. The other forthcoming car is S101; it is engineered with unique elements and has Ford EcoSport, Datsun Go and XUV500 identities.

The new Xylo is going to be a fierce contender to Honda Mobilio, Maruti Ertiga, Chevrolet Enjoy and Toyota Innova.
