It is a smart step taken by Mahindra, to offer its vehicles in Delhi NCR, where diesel vehicles are ban for now. The vehicles which are powered by mild hybrid technology are exempted from the NGT’s ban and due to which Mahindra will have an added advantage to improve its market hold. Further, the competitive pricing clearly reflects that Mahindra has taken advantage of the tax incentive offered by the NEMMP (National Electric Mobility Mission Plan).
