The new four-wheeler commercial vehicle is based on a new platform. It was codenamed P601 and was spied undergoing testing many times. The main purpose of the Jeeto will be to deliver goods.

Eight variants of the vehicle will be offered, having payloads ranging from 600 kgs to 700 kgs.

The Mahindra Jeeto will come with 12-inch wheels and the vehicle’s overall styling isn’t that great. It resembles other CVs in its class up to an extent. Below the loading bay, you can find the spare wheel on the right side and the battery on the left. Mahindra claims that the Jeeto will provide a fuel efficiency of 27.8-37.6 km/l depending on the variant that is chosen. The manufacturer that produces 2-wheelers, 4-wheelers and commercial vehicles, is targeting the Tata Ace, Tata Zip and Piaggio Ape Extra LD with the new Jeeto, which has been priced at Rs. 2.32 lakhs (ex-showroom, Telangana).
