Mahindra Alturas To Be Discontinued In 2021
Around 500 CKD units will be assembled in India beyond which the SUV will be discontinued.
Mahindra Alturas discontinuation is likely to happen next year. The reason behind this move is said to be the split between the Indian carmaker and SsangYong.
Currently, Mahindra has the components and materials to produce 500 more units with the CKD kits of Alturas G4. Once the kits are exhausted, the assembly will come to an end.
The SUV was launched exactly 2 years back in November, 2018. Even the updated BS6 compliant model was introduced in April earlier this year.
However, amidst the growing competition and more popular brand names of its rivals, the Alturas fetched very few buyers. It is currently the least selling SUV in its segment.
Mahindra managed to sell only 23 units of the Alturas last month. In comparison, the Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and even recently launched MG Gloster sold more than 600 units last month.
The Alturas is powered by a 2.2-litre, 4-cylinder diesel engine producing 178 BHP and 420 Nm of torque. This oil burner is paired to a Mercedes sourced 7-speed automatic transmission.
