  • The Maxximo was launched in 2010 and has sold over 1,60,000 units since then. Of which 1,15,000 were load carrying vehicles and the remaining 45,000 comprised of the Maxximo Mini-Van & Maxximo Mini-Van VX.
  • The Maxximo has been selling over 6,000 units per month.
  • The Maxximo Plus took 9 months for development.
  • Mahindra is one of the few manufacturers who has a product portfolio spread over all the load carrying capacity vehicle segments.

  • Available in white and red colours.
  • 2 years / 60,000 kms warranty with a six months / 25,000 kms zero maintenance offer.

This appears to be Mahindra's answer to the super Ace of TATA which is slowly and steadily increasing sales volumes and is seen more everywhere than the Ace these days.

So another vehicle to be scared about on the highway.. The meter console seem to be lifted straight from a two-wheeler.

In the thirst to extract better FE, we'll see the switch always in the Eco position, and the vehicle loaded to twice its capacity and chugging on the right lane at 30kmph. Though a novel idea, I don't know how effectively will it be used.

Is this not in the Dost and Super-Ace territory?

Now the Maxximo has grown to carry 100 kgs more.
This is not in Dost / Super ACE category and still lower.

I am surpised with the toggle in power with the touch of a button. What is it behind this? a variable data set?

This brings back memories of the unsupported Ashok Leyland steering column of yore.

So, it's still in the Ace & Force Trump segment.

Yeah, even I would hazard such a guess.

It's remarkable to see a beam adjuster dial in a vehicle such as this. But how many drivers will ever use it!
