Mahindra Jeeto-based passenger van spotted without camouflage


We have reported earlier that Mahindra is working on a passenger van based on the Jeeto light commercial vehicle (LCV). While camouflaged test mules of the vehicle have been spotted multiple times, a new set of spy shots shows the upcoming passenger van without any camouflage.

The images reveal that the front end of the Jeeto-based passenger van will be similar to that of its LCV sibling. The face is characterized by bubble-shaped headlamps with a grille running between them. A Mahindra logo is housed in the centre of the grille. Moving to the side, the luggage area of the Jeeto has been covered by a hard-top passenger compartment. It gets an entry door on the left, while the windows on both sides are made of tarpaulin to limit the final production costs. The front and rear bumpers, ORVMs and door handles are black in colour. The rear gets a boot door, a tarpaulin window and circular taillights.

The van is likely to be powered by the same 625cc single-cylinder, water-cooled engine that is offered with the Jeeto. It is expected to be coupled with a 4-speed gearbox. In the Jeeto, this engine is available with two power outputs - 11 BHP and 16 BHP, while torque is constant at 38 Nm.

The Jeeto-based passenger van is expected to be marketed as an alternative for auto rickshaws. It is likely to compete against the Tata Magic Iris.
