Mahindra & Mahindra, the home-grown automaker, has found yet another reason to celebrate as the company's production facility in Haridwar, Uttarakhand has achieved a production milestone of 7 lakhs vehicles. Just so you know, Mahindra's highest-seller SUV Bolero is manufactured at the Haridwar facility. Besides Mahindra Bolero, several other vehicles such as Scorpio S2, Gio (passenger & load), Alfa (passenger & load) and Champion range of Mahindra products are rolled out of this plant. The Haridwar plant has achieved this milestone in less than 10 years.
Inaugurated in December 2005, the plant’s earlier production milestone of 6 lakhs vehicles was achieved in November 2014 and since then it has taken just ten months to reach the 7 lakhs vehicle production mark.
