Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) has launched a diesel MPV, named as “Supro Van” priced at Rs 4.38 lakh (ex-showroom, Thane). Supro Van will follow BS-III emission standards and is mostly targeting semi-urban families.
Given an engine of 909cc that delivers a maximum power of 45.6 bhp, the automobile is pegged to be a good people-carrier vehicle too. Van can be used either in a five-seat layout or in an eight-seat layout depending on the requirement. The van is based on its new Supro platform and is expected to compete with present market dominators like Maruti Omni and Eeco.

Supro Van is available in three variants namely the VX trim, LX trim, and ZX trim. ZX variant, placed at the top, features both power steering and air-conditioning while the LX trim satisfies with power steering only. VX variant being the base model is devoid of both the features. 5-speed manual gearbox is standard across the variants.
Apart from this, M&M also launched ‘Supro Maxitruck’ priced at Rs 4.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Thane). It is a one tonne payload commercial vehicle and follows BS-III emission standard like the Van. Both the vehicles of the company will be manufactured at the Chakan facility near Pune and will be available in three colors.
