Mumbai, Oct 31 (PTI) Mahindra & Mahindra today said it would launch its multi-purpose vehicle, XYLO, in this quarter.

"XYLO has been developed by a team consisting of 160 experts who have created new benchmarks in styling, technology and performance," Mahindra Auto President Pawan Goenka said in a release.

The XYLO has been created with customers for developing a vehicle around the lifestyle and aspirations of its end-customer, it said.

The vehicle has gone through testing in India and other countries, it said.

Whatever the name! Launch the vehicle first. Has been in the news for ages now. Its high time it sees the light of the day and makes it to the showrooms. Moreso, atleast some competition for the Toyota Innova.

I think the ET guys have got it wrong, yet again. by saying it wil powered by a 2.5 CRDe. first they meant it to be the 2.6 one. secondly i wonder how come with that kinda heavy engine XYLO can give the wacky performance we have heard off.

One more article that says the car is coming with 2.5 ltr engine. They went on to say the 2.5 ltr is shared with Scorpio. Considering that this is 2609cc tractor motor weighing 350 kg, this car will be crushed by car-like driving MPV, Innova.

M&M Xylo to take on Toyota Innova

Article:

MUMBAI: Utility heavyweight Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) is launching another multi-utility vehicle Xylo, its most ambitious project after Scorpio, within the next two months.

The Xylo (positioned between the Bolero and the Scorpio) is speculated to be priced around Rs 7-8 lakh to compete with Toyota's Innova. Primarily a mid-segment player, M&M is also planning to launch a premium SUV (codenamed W201) by 2009, sources said.

The Xylo, earlier codenamed Ingenio, will be rolled out from its Nashik plant and launched simultaneously in the domestic and international markets. The company is looking at an initial capacity of 25,000 units. The multi-variant Xylo will initially have a diesel engine followed by a petrol engine and an automatic transmission variant. The Xylo will be powered by the 2.5 litre CRDi diesel engine, currently used in the Scorpio.

The company is developing the petrol engine for the Xylo with AVL. Incidentally, the Xylo will be manufactured on the same assembly line as the Scorpio. However, it will have a new body shop, while the paint and press shop will be common.

The styling of Xylo has been co-developed by M&M and the Italian design team. Around 160 experts from M&M created new benchmarks in terms of styling, technology and performance to design the product, said Pawan Goenka, president of M&M's automotive division. The Xylo was developed by the M&M team in 4 years. This product will give the ruggedness of the SUV, space of a MPV and luxury of a sedan, added Mr Goenka.

Analysts say M&M is developing new products to strengthen its position as a leading SUV player. M&M's UV range at the bottom-end includes soft-tops, Commander (recently renamed Major) and the Max which retails in the taxi-segment. There is also Bolero which contributes the maximum to M&M sales. The Bolero, including the Camper, sells around 4,500 units a month, followed by the Scorpio which sells around 3,000 units a month.

Mahindra... where is the car? The silliest PR ever done for a product without showing the car itself.

Personally I always had questions about Mahindra's design abilities until Scorpio (atleast they starting hiding door rivets inside body ). I hope they dont goof up with this one.

Work on this project had started when Innova was launched... but knowing that Toyota will not leave any stone unturned for an Innova threat.. will be interesting to see how the Ingenio (err.. xylo) stand up as new Innova (Kinjang Innova) will move in - possibly within 15 days of xylo.


XYLO ... isnt that a watch series by Titan? Remember the Rahul Bose advt.

Thank Mahindra's American ambitions for the premium SUV referred to in that report. M&M didn't take long to realise that Scorpio wasn't sophisticated enough to be sold as an SUV in US. Hence an all-new design was created. Scorpio will only be sold there in pick-up guise.

Yeah boss. andlike RE and everyone else, we get it after the amrikans beta test it for us

@Goswami ji, Unbecoming considering you post better than that - your own posts mentions it as the Scorp unit, tractor beech mein kahan se aaya.

And FWIW, Ingenio has been designed to take on the Innova from ground up, and the guys who've tested it speak volumes. Its nowhere like the passover you're making it up to be.

why don't we cut them slack - they delivered the lovely 2.2 scorp afterall - and let real life experiences talk, please?
