If you look closely that is a 2 stroke, 125 cc MotoGP bike with absolute slicks on rear.

Hate posting it here. Mahindra had once shown a Scorpio Hybrid Conept in an earlier Autoshow. They showed a little green box saying its the hybrid unit. Kept wondering whether its a working hybrid model. Turns out that, many others on the launch was thinking the same. Surely they should be some extra wiring etc.

But since its a concept we cannot argue over these things.

Guess they showcased their limited edition Xylo here. Can see one in the background. White.

Does any have the rear and side pictures of the Customised Black Xylo?

Liked the Thar. I didn't like the tail-lamp setup.

Mahindra is getting sports bikes in India? Great.

Also where is the World SUV?

The Thar is quite an awesome looker indeed. Right after the Classic, this is the one they should go with. What was so customized about the Xylo? Was it the same one as showcased at the performance show in Mumbai late last year?

That navistar bus is a disaster.
Trucks would look a lot better with smaller tooth grills and PRIMA-like head lights instead of round ones.
But I must say mahindra stole the show with thar. A true blue jeep at its best.
Let's see what is it like when it is actually launched. I hope it remains unchanged and is priced right.

Can all of us; ie. Let Mahindra's design/Busineess team know that they are producing some weird looking vehicles with the same rabit tooth grill in different forms which really dont look good. Also if they hire some good design engineers; maybe it will boost their sales atleat a good 10-20%.

After seeing so may comments on 'rabbit tooth' i feel that this "opinion" of around 70-80% of Car enthusiast on the most visited and organized forum 'T-BHP' does represent a common man's enthusiasm and feeling towards Mahindra's design.

On a side note; doesnt that BUS look like a suicide attempt for a School bus; I mean looking at it; i have no doubts that i will tip over a curve.

That Bus has some serious problems mostly cosmetic i suppose, Current mahindra Touristor looks simple and better.Dental problem persist in all Mahindra's,they should visit a good dentist(designer) for Dental extraction .

[quote=GTO;1669770]Mahindra's pavilion spanned across different segments of vehicles......Jeeps, SUVs, MUVs, CVs, 2 wheelers and more.

First things first, what all the Jeepers have been waiting for. The Mahindra Thar. That too with a long list of customisations! Mahindra's fit & finish have greatly improved, even on these ol' school Jeeps. With the common-rail under the hood, this Jeep ought to be a stonker.

Question is : How long is Mahindra going to sit on the fence? You have a ready list of enthusiast buyers for the Thar. It'd be a shame if you don't eventually launch it.

Mr. Behram has answered your question to me in a very positive manner with very good news about the 'upcoming' THAR.

request to all NCR guys who will be visiting the autoexpo in next 2 days, please take some fresh flowers and chocolates for him who will be standing next to THAR for rest of the days.
