Mahindra has launched its Gio commercial vehicle here today. Calling it "India's first compact truck", the Gio is priced at Rs 1.65 lakh, slotting in between the more expensive Tata Ace at nearly Rs 2.78 lakh and the ubiquitious three-wheeler, priced at Rs 1.38 lakh.

Billing it as a middle-step, the Mahindra Gio has been developed at a cost of Rs 25 crore. It uses a single-cylinder, 441cc, diesel engine that produces 9.1 bhp and 2.2 kgm of peak torque. The engine is developed by Kohler and is made at Kohler's facilities in India, while the transmission is a 4-speed manual, a Mahindra development.

The Gio has a payload of 0.5 tonne, with a GVW of a little over 1.1 tonne. Unlike other mini-trucks, it uses front independent suspension rather than leaf springs.

The Gio will be sold in two phases. The first phase will involve the North, East and Western parts of India and the vehicle will be available right away. The second phase will see the vehicle being launched in the south, which should happen by January 2010. Mahindra will retail the vehicle through 500 points and 150 dealerships.

I am using a gio. Now after 11,000 km I am having a problem with the gear box axle oil seal. I have replaced them almost every 1000 km. they say there is a problem with the gear box gear selector. the pin some times breaks inside the gear box . If it happens you have to tow the vehicle to the work shop. Agents do not have a proper solution for it.

Mahindra mini truck will be good competitor of traditional trucks available. Like tata, bajaj, force etc.The pricing of this vehicle is too good could afford htis vehicl ein place of 3 wheelers.Mahindra Gio looks great in the photos. I think this may compete with PeugeotApe! http://www.macktruck.org

  Posted by Autoreg at 12th December,2009
Another hit from India !. Guys' you seem to have developed a keen eye on how to push the prices down below what was considered impossible. Tata has done it with Nano and nowo M&M too. Just like the how China made electronics affodable, India can do so with autos

  Posted by karaan at 30th November,2009
Hey the Gio looks very cute... It may be called as the nano of pickup trucks!!!
  Posted by Rishi at 16th November,2009
I reckon, this latest launch by M&M in the form of Gio is going to do wonders for the company. Getting this kind of mileage and lots of other benefits at 1.65lakhs is something one doesn't get so easily.
  Posted by gurvinder singh at 14th November,2009
gio,size of the dala should be of 8ft 5ft
  Posted by RAJEEV at 5th November,2009
IT IS AGOOD VIECHLE FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSE
  Posted by Sasidharan at 5th November,2009
The launching of the vehicle should happen simultaneously all over India.Why North-South division ?
  Posted by rijo thomas at 4th November,2009
Yes it is actually a single cylinder engine and the details given is the main post above has an error, i think gio has a lot of style and this kind of vehicle will definitely suit the small businesses across the nation, and for such a vehicle looks does not matter and anyways the vehicle looks cute no matter what people say ;)
  Posted by Protip at 3rd November,2009
'Jiyo' mere laal... GIO. Even the looks defy the plaid creativity displyed by various players in the commercial space. I wouldn't mind using one for personal purposes as a pick-up.
  Posted by Hrishi at 2nd November,2009
This is really a very very good and affordable truck. Mahindra has hit the nail right on the head. It has simply given no room for options other than to go for Gio. It has just broken the competition. It has a 0.5 ton carrier and it looks simply amazing. It is a very very cute truck I should say. But still I think I should not use the girly word cute for a strong and masculine truck like GIO. Pure Value for Money
  Posted by Manjunath at 31st October,2009
Mahindra new small 4 wh, with 0.5 tonne capacity
  Posted by Raj at 31st October,2009
Thie vehicle is a Done Done Deal...and the most cost effective for a common man.. Vehicle cost is half of TATA Ace & Piaggio Truk... runing cost is half of Tata Ace & Ape Truk.. so one can bye 2 GiO at the cost of one Tata & Piaggio vehicles and earn douible income. This is really an excellent product offering from Mahindra's
  Posted by Antony at 30th October,2009
Thats cool! a minitruck with such an impressive price and mileage(27kpl)… The style is not a piece of cake for the customer who will be using it, as they hardly bother to impress people on road, or they would take a family tour!!!……The two main things(price and mileage) will make the product hit hard on customer’s land… Kudos M&M!!!
  Posted by BABU MALAPPURAM at 30th October,2009
GIO ITS REALLY A GIOOOOOOOOOOOO ITS REALLY WORTH FOR THE PRICE WITH THE FEATURE PROVIDED BY MAHINDRA I THINK IT WOULD COMPETE WITH NANO IF PASSENGER OF GIO LAUNCHES TATA BEWARE OF GIO PASSENGER!!!!!!

Well everyone around everywhere are only talking about this vehicle on its looks.ell i feel there is no need to argue about the looks about this vehicle coz the looks for such kind of a vehicle does not actually matter, infact if you could see at the positive points of this vehicle, it is the 1st Compact Truck in 0.5 ton category in India. It comes with a range of features that combine the style, comfort and safety of a 4 wheeler with the low operating and maintenance cost of a 3 wheeler. All this comes along with several class defining features such as better mileage and load optimization, safety and a ‘car like’ feel at an amazing price of Rs. 1.65 lakh (ex showroom). It also boasts of an unmatched mileage of 27 kmpl. Making it that much more accessible to people across the country, and providing delivery solutions to a range of businesses with transport needs. All this ensures that the vehicle delivers not just payload but loads of prosperity as well to the owner .

vehicle is having single cylinder engine only, please correct the comment.
