Mahindra SA has extended its domestic product lineup by launching a Bolero 4x2 turbodiesel-powered pick-up for R109 900. The addition of the entry-level model brings the Indian manufacturer's product lineup to five models, including the Bolero 4x4 pickup and double cab and the Scorpio 2,6 GLX 4x2 and 4x4 SUVs.
The single-cab Bolero 4x2 workhorse offers South African consumers an alternative entry-level bakkie to the Tata Telcoline 2,0 TD. The new Bolero is propelled by a 69 kW 2,5-litre four-cylinder turbocharged and intercooled diesel engine that produces maximum torque of 210 N.m. A double-cab version of the 4x2 will be launched in the near future, Mahindra told CARtoday.com.
The Bolero 4x2 is a multi-purpose pickup. Its large loadbox has double-wall construction for increased durability and protection.
Mahindra SA currently has over 20 dealerships across the country with more dealers in the pipeline and the company's chief executive, Vijay Nakra, says the Indian marque Mahindra has "far outreached its initial expectations" since its launch last year.
"Mahindra is pleased to launch this workhorse in South Africa," Nakra said. "This product has been successfully tried and tested on various terrains across the globe. We believe the Bolero 4x2 will redefine the entry level bakkie segment. The Bolero is a true working companion for different applications such as farming, mining, or even moving goods for small businessmen."
To facilitate the storing and distribution of Mahindra parts to any licensed service outlet countrywide within 24 hours, Mahindra & Mahindra SA has successfully tied-up an agreement with logistic experts, Berco Express. In addition, Mahindra owners receive 24 hours off-road assistance available through the AA.
