New Delhi :
Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd on Tuesday launched its first BS-VI compliant vehicle in the form of its compact SUV, XUV300 with price ranging from Rs 8.30 lakh to Rs 11.84 lakh.
The BS-VI version of the XUV300 will be available on all its 1.2 litre turbo petrol offerings, Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) said in a statement. Mahindra is proactively transitioning its mobility portfolio to BS-VI emission standards in a phased manner, well ahead of the statutory timeline of April 1, 2020, it added.
Commenting on the launch, M&M President, Automotive Sector Rajan Wadhera said, “It is a milestone in our BS-VI transition journey. Despite tight timelines, we along with our suppliers, have met the challenging requirements of these tighter emission norms, much ahead of the stipulated timeline.”
He further said, “We will progressively upgrade our entire range with cleaner emissions technology.” M&M recently said it is recalling a limited batch of XUV300 vehicles to fix a faulty suspension component.
The proactive inspection and replacement of the component would be carried on a limited batch of compact SUV that were manufactured till May 19, 2019.
“This is in keeping with the company’s customer centric approach. The inspection and subsequent rectification will be carried out free of cost for all XUV300 customers, who will be individually contacted by the company,” M&M said in a regulatory filing.
The company, however, did not share the number of the recalled units.
