Mahindra may launch Quanto AMT by late 2014

Just yesterday Mahindra rolled out the new Scorpio for the Indian market with a price starting at Rs 7.98 lakh (ex-showroom Mumba). This new Scorpio has been built on a new platform and is expected to put Mahindra’s sales on fire. Now there are reports suggesting that the company might launch the Quanto AMT by late 2014.

First showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo that was held earlier this year, the Quanto will become the first diesel MUV to get the automated manual transmission once it is launched. The Quanto gets the same mechanicals as the regular vehicle, but it will be a clutchless transmission. The AMT transmission or a semi-automatic doesn’t come with a weight penalty unlike the conventional automatic gearbox. The added weight penalty could have added more bulk to the already heavy Quanto which tips the scales at 1.6 tonnes.

The transmission has an ‘E’ button, and the lever in the default position sits in the right slot and has two markings there ‘N’ and ‘R’. Once slotted to the left it goes into ‘M’ with “+” and “-“toggle functions. The new technology has its advantages such as not taxing the fuel consumption, not expensive to build and is not heavy either.

The Quanto hasn’t put Mahindra’s sales on fire since its launch, but with the introduction of the AMT variant it will surely get few footfalls from people who have been looking for a budget automatic MUV. Stay tuned to CarWale as we get you more details on this new Quanto variant.
