Default Another Mahindra machine looms on the horizon

  1. As Mahindra refines the Scorpio, adding better features and pricing it higher and higher, it may just float out of reach of the rental van operators and rural users.
  2. Then again the Commander/Bolero family is now aging and getting obsolete.
  3. Meanwhile a lucrative Sumo, Tavera, Qualis market beckons.
So I believe Mahindra & Mahindra will introduce a entry-level SUV (a refined Bolero replacement?) by the end of this year 2006.

Today's Times of India reports its name as the Mahindra "Ingenu"!

Who better to serve the needs of the semi-urban people carrier than M&M itself? The Scorpio has taught them some very important lessons in car-building, and I eagerly wait to see if the Ingenu can do what the Tavera could not (i.e. fill the Qualis' gap).

Could have had a better name though

There is a totally new generation Bolero expected at the end of 2006 with Monocoque construction. It is going to rock!

They are also working on a new CRDI power plant. Think it has 2.2 lts giving out 105 PS. Leave a little error margin to the specs but its definitely happening. End 2006 is more like when we will see it on sale.
