Default Scoop! Mahindra's new medium-duty trucks spotted testing

Thanks to Praveen Bora for sending these images in. Heartfelt gratitude for sharing it with other enthusiasts via this Team-BHP page!

Two new M&HCVs were recently spotted testing on the NH4 near Haveri in Karnataka. Apparently, these were test mules of Mahindra's upcoming medium duty trucks that are likely to slot in between the Jayo and Optimo LCVs and the Blazo heavy-duty range of trucks.

The spy images suggest that the new medium duty range will be offered with a driver's cab and truck body. The trucks appear to have rectangular, clear lens headlamp clusters and a set of fog lights positioned on the front bumpers. The cab also has a single grab handle just above the grille, in the centre of the front fascia. The new medium duty trucks have crash protection at the front and rear. One of the test mules has larger diameter wheels and appears to have a shorter wheelbase. It also has a side crash guard.

Other details like payload capacity and engine specifications are not yet known.

Spotted this truck at Kuruppampady on A.M. Road [State Highway 16 (SH 16)] three weeks ago. The AM Road [ Aluva Munnar Road ] is one of the oldest roads in Kerala and an ideal stretch to test the power and maneuverability of the truck. The section between Neryamangalam and Adimali is narrow and the toughest, where the road runs through a forest ghat terrain and deep ravine.

These trucks are under testing for more than an year now. These trucks will also have new range of engines, as per CV News.in.

Quote:
The new range will effectively spread between 8T to 16T. ICV segments has one of the highest number of variants in terms of segments and applications. So we may expect tippers, rigid trucks in multiple load body and wheel base options. ICV trucks TIV is around 50,000 nos per annum and Mahindra wants a pie out of it. Out of this 12T and above constituents 50% and the one seen testing is the 13T FSD truck. Products are expected to go on sale by end of FY 18.
