Mahindra Rexton coming in seven more cities
After rolling out Ssangyong Mahindra Rexton in Delhi and Mumbai, Mahindra and Mahindra is planning to amplify its network for Rexton even more. The company is mulling to introduce this SUV in about seven more cities by the end of this month. These cities comprise of Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Ludhiana, Pune, Chandigarh and Patiala.
Apparently, in Chennai, Mahindra Ssangyong Rexton will be launched very soon and will be sold on the current Mahindra dealer network there accompanied by sales personnel especially for Rexton. It appears that Ssangyong is trying to create its own identity pretty quickly. Right now, the Rexton SUV is being manufactured at the Chakan Plant of Mahindra and Mahindra located in Pune, Maharashtra. The components of the car are imported from Korea and few of them about 22% are developed here. This manufacturing plant of M&M has the capacity to produce about 5000 units of Rexton each year. Mahindra and Mahindra is trying its level best to establish Rexton SUV in the Indian car market. As of now, the company has about 14% catch in the utility vehicle section in the Indian car bazaar.
Talking about Mahindra Ssangyong Rexton, this one is actually based on the Mercedes M Class
first generation. The diesel engine producing 162BHP and 184BHP power coupled with five speed manual and automatic transmission makes the SUV interesting and a true performer. However, the price might seem a bit high (Rs. 17.75 to Rs. 19.75 lakh), but the features sprinkled inside would certainly make it big in no time in India.
So far, the company hasn’t revealed any booking figure to the media, but we hear that it has been increasing day by day. And we wish the company a big good luck with Rexton!
