It is fascinating to witness the Indian Navy selecting Mahindra SUVs for this trip. It is a clear recognition of the Indian auto giant. What it has been able to achieve in the last few years is just commendable. At the moment, its mega-successful SUVs like the XUV300, XUV700, Scorpio N and Thar are among the frontrunners in their respective segments in terms of sales. As a result, it comes as no surprise that even the Indian defence forces would opt to go with these SUVs. We must also mention that all these SUVs (except Thar) boast a solid 5-star safety rating at the Global NCAP. On such historic journeys, having a safe car is of paramount importance.
