Mahindra has sold 1,00,000 units of their Jeeto mini-truck in India. The Mahindra Jeeto is a budget commercial vehicle which is adaptable to a lot of utilities and is available in both van and truck formats. In fact, the Mahindra Jeeto which set the 1,00,000-unit milestone was a mini-van.
The milestone-marker Mahindra Jeeto was manufactured in the brand's Zaheerabad facility in Telangana. This feat also shows the brand's acceptance in the commercial vehicle market. Mini-trucks such as the Jeeto can be used for a variety of applications, especially small-scale commercial businesses, short-distance transport and in-house works in large companies.
The Mahindra Jeeto was introduced in 2015 and the brand managed to set this milestone within just three years. The company claims that the Jeeto belongs to the "last-mile transportation segment" in the country.
With a starting price of Rs 2.88 lakh ex-showroom (Delhi), the Mahindra Jeeto is offered in nine variants. The mini-truck is powered by a 625cc single cylinder engine which makes just 11bhp and 38Nm of torque. There is also 16bhp tune option. The engine comes mated to a 4-speed manual gearbox.
The Jeeto is available in a CNG format too; further adding to its desirability. The interiors offer just the basics but the front bench seat has got decent comfort. The Mahindra Jeeto returns a mileage figure of around 33.4km/l.
Speaking about the new milestone, Veejay Ram Nakra, Chief of Sales & Marketing, Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra said, "This is a very proud moment for us. Jeeto has been a game changer in last mile distribution with its modular range, unmatched versatility and superior efficiency to haul goods across different segments. With 30 per cent more mileage, it has delivered superior value & fulfilled the brand promise of bringing prosperity into the lives of its customers by enabling them to earn more. With over one lakh vehicles produced on the Jeeto platform over the past 3 years, it is a testament to Mahindra's focus on developing best in class products".
Thoughts On The Mahindra Jeeto
The Mahindra Jeeto, as mentioned before, is one of the basic forms of a commercial truck. However, it is an ideal choice for a range of light-duty applications while also being a perfect upgrade for three-wheeler owners. Even though there are a lot of other choices on the market, the Jeeto seems to be the more popular choice and the 1,00,000-milestone proves it further.
