IMO, i think the platoon would look good with REGULAR full claddings.

Wish they would offer a customization option for 4x4 enthusiasts.

lift kits, winch, lockers/lsd, etc....

reviving an old thread. Had my first platoon spotting(black) today. The body cladding was downright looking cheap. But overall a good effort by mahindra customization to do something different.

people are still buying the mahindra in house customized cars? that division still exists? I tell you that team has very little in terms of imagination. they could do better to look around in team bhp. they can land up with better people for that team i tell you.

the picture looks nice but in my opinion, a lot of the vehicle's utility value and efficiency is cut down.

Again in my opinion, these types of modifications/ customizations are strictly for the chaps who probably have access to several other vehicles for their normal use.

hey, is that mahindra platoon built by mahindra customisation? i have my doubts.

they have no such models.
