As you read it first at vicky.in, Mahindra today launched Maxximo mini-truck. Maxximo – the world’s first mini-truck to be powered by a 2-cylinder CRDe engine with DOHC technology and 4 valves per cylinder. The C2 CRDe engine provides an ideal balance between power and fuel economy. It delivers 18.4 Kw (25 HP) of Power and 55 Nm (5.5 Kgm) of Torque which means greater pulling power along with superior fuel economy of 20 kmpl.
A large loading area of 3.2 sq. mt. (35 sq. ft.) coupled with 850 kg of rated payload mean that the customer can carry more load in one trip, leading to improved earnings. Leaf-spring suspension at the rear with 6 leaves along with thicker (3.6 mm) wheel rims coupled with the powerful C2 CRDe engine truly gives the Maxximo go-anywhere-capability. The car-like interior includes features like beige-and-tan 2-tone seats that come with headrests and that are more comfortable with better support; a bench seat for the co-driver with no obstruction between driver and co-driver seat – all of which reduces fatigue for driver and passenger over long distances.The well-designed beige-coloured instrument panel boasts of a stylish cluster with a digital odometer, double trip meter and an integrated clock.
A taller and wider cabin with more leg-room and knee-room allows for easy entry and exit, while a footstep for the cargo body, windshield wiper with intermittent function and inbuilt spray system, mobile charging facility and dual-mounted sun-visor add to the overall convenience. The ergonomic hand brake position, dead pedal, steering wheel made of soft-touch, strong-grip material, bigger rear-window and larger windshield enhance the Maxximo’s driving pleasure.
Maxximo will be launched by the end of January or early February 2010. Available in four attractive and youthful shades – Appy Red, Diamond White, Sunny Yellow and Leaf Green. Price of Maxximo will be announced at the time of launch.
