The test schedule for the Mahindra W201 is like the universe - there's no end to it. At least 2/3 Indian road users have seen one in the last two years.
Two IndianAutosBlog.com readers have sent in snaps of the Mahindra W201 test mule from Tamil Nadu. Praveen Emmanuel's shots were taken inside the city while Mr KR Pandian's images arrive from Coimbatore. There is a device attached to the second mule's exhaust. Are they testing for combustion quality from fuel pumps from different suppliers?
Mahindra is expected to launch the W201 in October with the mHawk 2.2-liter diesel engine producing about 140PS power and 320Nm torque paired to a five-speed manual transmission. One allegedly leaked image of the vehicle's nose has been posted on IndianAutosBlog.com a few weeks back.
Mahindra might sell the W201 through select dealer outlets. They can use Ssangyong's dealer network in overseas countries to sell the global SUV.
