The launch indeed is tomorrow. The papers have been talking about it for almost a week now.

The variants are C2, C4, C6 & C8. Please turn couple of pages back for the info.

Quite a bunch of sites claiming it! Some posts were up on 12 Sept & one of them is published as recent as an hour back! I am surprised t-bhp didn't get any scoops on it.

Oh! Thanks for the pointer. C2 sounds like a barebones version with the only "feature" being Air Conditioning for the taxi market. I only hope the C8 version is not overpriced and is positioned sensibly in the market.

Looking at the wheels placed at the extreme corners, I'm of the opinion that this would not handle so badly and would actually be pretty decent...

I personally feel the launch may not be tomorrow.

For instance, the XUV launch was announced a couple of days in advance by M & M themselves. Here, there is no news directly from M & M on the launch yet. Add the uncertainties associated on account of the proposed Bandh tomorrow, the prospects of a launch tomorrow indeed look bleak.

I am hoping this turns out to be a VFM product from Mahindra when it launches !

Hey, No effect of Bandh in Mumbai and I'm reading online that the rest of Maharashtra is also not participating in the Bandh. Reason is the 1.5day Ganapati Visarjan. So if Mahindra wanted to they could technically launch it today.

Thanks GTO, for the above info !

Will eagerly sit on the net, to see how the launch unfolds !

I have already booked a test drive here in Bangalore, which has been acknowledged via a return SMS, but no further response so far regarding my test drive date

I guess in a couple of weeks time the official video would be up. They should be organizing a media drive event soon and I am pretty sure TBhp would be a part of the event.

I hope this time it will not take much time like Renault Duster (since test ride vehicles are already in the showrooms) and all variants (with all engine options available - if at all they are there) will be available for Tbhp review.

New wait starts from today - wait for GTO review.

BTW anybody is having link of the launch event?

Is there any live webcast? none of the leading auto magazine site is covering the event, it seems! Very surprising!

The launch seems to be covered on www.motorbeam.com .
Though the update frequency is slow as of now. Hope it helps
