The company rolled out its 4 millionth vehicle only in 2012, and has produced the last million vehicles within a quick span of 2 years. The Indian manufacturer has been in the automotive business for 7 decades now. Mahindra operates plants in Chakan, Nasik, Haridwar, Zaheerabad, Kandivali and an engine plant in Igatpuri.

This year, Mahindra will introduce two new platforms in the passenger vehicle sector, and one in the LCV space. The latter, which is codenamed P601, has been caught testing multiple times and is likely to rival the hugely-popular Tata Ace.

In the passenger vehicles department, Mahindra will introduce the S101 and U301 (codenames), the latter being a successor to the acclaimed Bolero.
