Slew of new Mahindras coming
David Makuna, Mahindra regional sales manager, told Wheels a slew of new Mahindras models are on their way to SA, from a two- seater “jeep” to an A- segment passenger car as well as the long- awaited Tivoli. And are these Indian vehicles any good? As bricks are the toughest load for a bakkie, Wheels asked a well- known brickmaker on the South Coast how he rates his three Mahindra bakkies. He told Wheels they cannot be beaten. “We drop 1,5 tons of bricks on them five days a week and then deliver all over the steep hills of South Coast. They just keep on going, with the oldest one now having 80 000 km on it,” said the owner.
