Mahindra has announced that its recently launched Quanto SUV has received 10,000 bookings within two months of launch. The manufacturer has also announced that it will be ramping up capacity at its Nashik plant and will now produce 3,500 units per month instead of the current 2,500.
Commenting on the response to the Quanto, Pravin Shah, chief executive, automotive division, Mahindra & Mahindra said, “We are delighted that the Quanto has received over 10,000 bookings in a span of two months and we are thankful to our customers for this overwhelming response. This strengthens our belief that the Quanto will create a new category within the SUV segment with its unique value proposition. We are confident of meeting the demand for the Quanto and are in the process of ramping up our production capacity at Nashik towards the same.”
The Quanto was designed and developed completely in-house by Mahindra on the Ingenio platform, and is powered by a 1.5-litre mCR100 engine that puts out 100bhp.
