Mahindra South Africa has announced it has shot past the 1 000-unit milestone in the first month of 2022, with the local arm of the Indian car manufacturer setting an all-time best sales figure of 1 010. According to Mahindra, this is a massive 77 per cent improvement over January 2021. 

“We have a very ambitious target for the new year”

Mahindra’s best-seller was the Pik Up, with 618 persons putting pen to paper for the company’s locally-built bakkie. In terms of the firm’s local SUV line-up, it says the KUV100 NXT and Scorpio both outperformed expectations. 

Mahindra“The new sales record also creates a positive environment for what promises to be a very busy year for Mahindra. This has already started with runaway sales of special edition models such as the Mahindra Pik Up Karoo Dusk and the new Pik Up S6 Double Cab Automatic,” said Mahindra SA. 

“The past two years have been tough, and we often faced delays in vehicle shipments from our global plants as well as other disruptions, such as the disturbances in KwaZulu-Natal where our plant is based. Despite this, our dealer network and the team kept morale and momentum high and it has borne fruit,” said Rajesh Gupta, CEO of Mahindra South Africa.

“We have a very ambitious target for the new year, and set very high standards for our customer service team and our dealers. Like before, we will make sure our customer service and dealer capacity grow in step with our sales, and we trust that this will continue to win us many more fans,” Rajesh added.
