Mahindra SA to start local assembly, move into tractor market

Mahindra South Africa (SA) should start local semi-knockdown assembly of its new generation Mahindra Pik Up and Bolero bakkie within the next six months, says Mahindra Automotive and Farm Equipment International Operations chief Arvind Mathew. “Local assembly is my number one priority,” he told Engineering News Online in an interview on Thursday evening. “South Africa is a huge priority for Mahindra. We believe we have to invest in the country. The aim is to have the first vehicle roll off the line in the next six months.”
