Mahindra officials said that the combined production capacity of the Verito and Vibe is pegged at 3,500 units a month in Nashik, Maharashtra with a production line flexible to produce any volume of either models. Mahindra also has the option of increasing the output if need be, by adding more shifts. The Verito sedan is clocking a consistent monthly sales of 1,000 units and the Mahindra hopes that the Verito Vibe could add more to that every month.

The company has invested 60 crore rupees to develop the Verito Vibe which took shape at Mahindra Research Valley (MRV) located in Chennai.

    60 crores for development of Verito Vibe? That’s damn cheap R&D investment for a new product (though a spin off). But the flip side is the product looks damn cheap too.

    Commendable effort this one in particular by M&M, making an out of the box design from the boxy looking verito….. but i still don’t understand why can’t they load verito platform with more features, at the least provide a passenger Air bag in front along with a Bluetooth enabled music system n steering controls or steering mounted stick provided in Ford Figo….. My piece of advice to M&M is that good mileage n handling might suit the Taxi Image of Verito but for selling it a masses you need to look up to Brands like Hyundai and Maruti.
