The commercial vehicle industry is on a boom with almost every major manufacturer jumping into it with their ultra low cost yet reliable products targeted at masses. Mahindra & Mahindra is one of those manufacturer who not only offers quality products but is also responsible for a major share of this industry.
A couple of months back Mahindra was in news for Mahindra Maxximo pick-up truck which proved to be a value for money but maybe the customers wanted a bit more cheaper product and now Mahindra Gio has come up as an option in Bihar. The only difference between the two is that one Maxximo is supposed to be a pick-up truck while the newly launched Gio is presented as a passenger cab.
From now onwards people could be seen commuting in such Gio passenger cabs on the roads of Bihar and it would be economical for both the commuters and the owner of the cab. Similar vehicle from Tata, Bajaj and Piaggio will face difficult competition from the same.
