A good find there, doctor.
I agree with the others, as it does look like an Ingenio to me, as well.
I feel this would provide competition to the Innova in the people mover segment.

Hey guys..saw the same kind of car fully under those wraps exitting out of a factory gate near Adugodi junction and the bannerghetta road. I thought it looked like an innova going by the shape and the headlamps that were the only thing visible . This was a couple of weeks back while i was on my way to office ..Gotto check out what the factory was on my way back from office..

Ask your friend when is it going to be launched, I tried the Sumo Grande and was not impressed at all by its built quality.

its on the road when u come from forum and take a left at adugodi junction to hit the bannerghetta road. The factory occupies almost the entire stretch of road on the right. Peculiar thing is i didnt notice any board to indicate what the factory is but the notice on the gate said, vehicles entering the premises need to have emission certificates. Wonder what its all about. Anybody from bangalore knows what the factory is ?

It is the Mico/Bosch factory which you are referring to; the gate is mostly used for entry of staff.

You can probably catch an Ingenio on the Mumbai - Pune expressway each time you go on a trip. of course it is fully camouflaged and covered in black white check prints.

During my last 4 trips on weekends to Pune, each time I saw Ingenio. It comfortably does 120+ speeds. Last time, the over enthusiastic driver overtook me( Verna) and when I was tailing it, he tried to speed away. Of course that was not to be done and I soon saw it fading away in the rear view mirror. It is another boring MUV (IMO).

It has rear foot steps... possible direct access to 3rd row (which seems to be front facing!).... yippeee... just what i want.

seems longer than Scorpio/ Safari and Shorter than innova... overall the shap looks promising.

yeah probably, i guess that explains why that vehicle was exitting that factory. AFAIK Bosch supplies major Common rail components such as fuel injectors and common rail pumps etc for MM .So it has to be the MM ingenio that i saw the other day and the innova kindof look that i mentioned earlier confirms the same.

The one peculiarity which can be noticed is the proportions of the vehicle.It is long lower and the glass area is also low.
Good one though and maybe an immediate launch since the grande is already out on the streets.

Default M&M's new utility vehicle to cost Rs 4-5 lakh

Here's an exerpt from an article in today's Business standard mentioning possible launch date and pricing:

Quote:
M&M's new utility vehicle to cost Rs 4-5 lakh
M&M plans to roll out a five-seater mass-market utility vehicle (UV) next year, priced between Rs 4-5
lakh. The new mass market UV, which has been developed at a cost of Rs 500-600 crore, will not be a
trimmed down variant of any of the company’s existing models, but one designed and developed from
scratch. The prototype of the model is ready and is expected to be sent for homologation (for safety
and emission clearances) by the end of this year. The company is also developing an all-new sports
utility vehicle that will be launched in 2010. The new SUV will be rolled out from the company’s
proposed plant in Chakan, near Pune. (BS-4/4)
