Mahindra to unveil Maxximo at Auto Expo
Sagar Parikh, I'm the international news editor at IndianAutosBlog.com. I love everything that has a steering wheel!
Mahindra will launch the Maxximo cargo truck at the Auto Expo next week. According to our friends at vicky.in who have knowledge on this vehicle's specifications, the Maxximo will use a 2 cylinder, 900cc CRDe m_Hawk engine.
The payload of the truck will be 800kg and the styling will be closely based on the Mahindra Gio, the half-tonne truck unveiled recently.
The mHawk engine on the Maxximo will develop 25bhp of power and 55Nm of torque. This is several times greater than the Gio's capabilities. The Maxximo should give tough competition to the Tata Ace, which is the market leader in this segment.
The Maxximo will roll out of Mahindra's new plant in Chakan and have interiors matching to a car. The brand name Maxximo was christened using words MORE and MAXIMUM.
