Mahindra to Unveil SsangYong Range, Couple of Electric Vehicles at the 11th Auto Expo

SsangYong Korando

Our very own Auto Giant Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) is all set to show off its newly-acquired Korean brand, SsangYong at the upcoming Auto Expo in New Delhi. The brand will showcase its range of SUVs – The Korando and the XXL-Sized Rexton. Just over a year ago, Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) bought a 70% stake in the ailing Ssangyong Motor Company (SYMC) for $465 Million (that’s about Rs 2,105 Crore).

The Korando is a modern soft-roader built around a monocoque chassis. Under the hood sits a 2-litre Turbo-Diesel motor putting out around 175bhp and over 35Kgm of Torque via a 6-speed Auto ‘box. Overall, the firepower is good enough for a car of this size. The Rexton, on the other hand, is a typical old-school SUV based on the 1st Gen Mercedes Benz M-Class. It comes with a 2.7-litre five-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with over 160bhp and 34.8kgm of torque via a five-speed Auto ‘box. The big SUV, when launched, will go head-to-head with the Toyota Fortuner and Chevrolet’s Captiva. 

All-new Reva NXR

Mahindra will also showcase the much awaited all-new Reva NXR Electric vehicle; a 3-door hatch with seating for four, the car will be sold in two versions – NXR City and NXR with a price-range of Rs 3.5lakh to Rs 5lakh. Also on display will be the Electric version of Mahindra’s Verito sedan.
