> Verito originally replaced the Mahindra-Renault Logan
> e-Verito to soldier on
> Mahindra sold 207 Veritos and has not produced any Verito Vibes this current financial year (April-June)
While dwindling sales are to blame, there’s no doubt that the shift in consumer demand for SUVs is also a culprit. Furthermore, as India will adopt BS-VI norms by the year 2020, the company may not be interested in retaining the current platform any longer since the electric-platform is already in use (e-Verito).
It looks like Mahindra can do without the duo as it already portrays an image of a ‘Utility Vehicle’ manufacturer. So the carmaker might as well focus on selling the heavy weights (SUVs) only. Top Mahindra officials also remain convinced that the Verito duo will fade away, and they intend to discontinue low-volume products that aren’t intended to be BS-VI compliant.
