Guess they should stick to Mahindra branding,Cos to establish a new brand is a very expensive affair.
By branding it as Mahindra they will have a ready loyal Mahindra Fan base lining up to buy these product's.
Agree with you, but it will also decrease the premium buyers as who will want to buy a Mahindra if you are getting a Nissan, Skoda, Toyota etc. So, to tap that I would say need to load the cars really well and introductory price should be kept as low as possibe and lower there margin for sometime till the brand establish completely.

Exactly they will start the korondo pricing where xuvs pricing ends and price rexton where korondo pricing ends . But the fact of matter is the korando looks pale in comparison to the xuv . Anyway let's see how the market reacts but as of now they have 4 launches mini xylo, face lifted verito, reva and rexton ,i don't think korando is comming this year. Do u have info that it's comming this year ?

guys, lol. I was talking about the whole SUV segment. I meant who will buy a Mahindra paying a whopping 17-18 lakhs when just by paying 3-4 lakhs more they can get Fortuner or X-Trail even Outlander.
Guys, Korando is not coming this year, it will be coming to India in 2013 Summers. This year by September Mahindra will be launching the Rexton.

though nissan x-trail looks a good proposition but their service especially for their CBU cars is a question mark.

there is big turn around time for spares which are not available off the shelf
which turns out to be a pain in the long run

M & M should name the brand as Ssangyong only. M & M is known for rural markets, & I have hardly seen any sophisticated urbane chaps buying M & M. Ssanyong on other hand will help people know its Korean bought by M & M.

Buddy, imagine what will happen if Land Rover & Jaguars are sold under Tata name.[lol]
