Default Mahindra: mSeries XTV Utility Vehicles

I follow Anand Mahindra on twitter and today he did post a picture.

It is a UTV and looks sharp. Looks like a kid in a candy store and i am surprised that it hid from team-bhp for so long.

Folks go wild and say what this is and give more ideas.

For me....i am awaiting the specs and pricing for the same.

Looks like its a atv and could be targetted to the US markets. The name was registered in the trademarks office.

Looks mean! I'm afraid it might go over board with styling cues in typical Mahindra fashion. But this one is bound to be more affordable given that it is a Mahindra's.
Did he not tweet anything about its launch date?

Thanks for sharing!

Will keep you posted on that. Could be atleast 2-3 weeks before it comes out. Maybe more.

I believe india may not get it yet.

I wonder what sort of engine this thing comes with? Diesel from their small utility vehicle (forgot the name)?

^^^ Thanks for sharing the pics.

I think its not for Indian market. Instead the main purpose could be to compete against John Deere's Gator in US.

Thank you GTO. Thats a good looker but in this market would be some competition with the Polaris and the John deere existing.

Well some of the purpose it serves:
Going from point a to b on the farm without roads. Can travel on any terrain.
Light hauling of bales of Hay, fertilizer farm tools. This can make or break a man due to the distances involved. Mind you farms here are usually in the 100s of hectares. Walking is not a option.

My managers dad has 2000 hectares farm and can you guess how many employees or workers he has?
Ans: None. The dad is well in his 60s and does all the jobs himself. Planting wheat all across the farm and tilling. The only time outsiders come in is for the harvest which are done by contractors with those giant harvesting machines.

This is a more handy tool and can be left dirty and is very rugged. The top speed may not be much but they are like go cart on no roads.
