Speculation about Mahindra Maxximo’s passenger version launch yesterday turned out to be right with the company launching the product at a price point of Rs. 3.2 lakhs. The Maxximo faithfully follows the Tata Ace and is hoping to break the strangle hold of the Ace. The more ambitious (in thinking) among the auto journalists fraternity strongly believe that it is only time before Mahindra does a Tata again by launching an equivalent of the Tata Venture on the Maxximo platform. And why not, the ingredients are all there.
