Thoughts About Mahindra Delivering 13,500 Vehicle On Dhanteras

Right. So we weren't very impressed with a 45,000 figure from a different manufacturer, and we're not entirely sure about what to say about 13,500. We guess a ‘good job!' will suffice. Yes, also maybe add Jawa delivery numbers to this amount.

In light of the slow down in the auto industry, 13,000 deliveries are actually alright for one day's worth of work. We hope the festive season closes with a positive trend over the next few years. He industry truly need to start recovering immediately.
