HOUSTON, TX (November 6, 2015) – Mahindra North America made several new product announcements at its National Dealer Meeting last week including the introduction of seven new utility vehicles and updates to the existing XTVs. The Mahindra mPACT® XTVs, introduced at the end of 2014, have been well received in the market and these additional models will double the product line. The new XTVs include four camouflage models to serve the hunting market and two new Flexhauler™ models with enhanced cargo box capabilities as well as a limited special edition version of the XTV. These new models provide the capacity and flexibility to fit the many needs of land owners, hunters, farming operations and commercial businesses.
Every Mahindra mPACT® XTV utility vehicle is manufactured in the U.S., built from the ground up in Batesville, Arkansas. All XTVs come standard with a three-year powertrain warranty supported by Mahindra, the number one selling tractor brand, by volume, in the world. The limited, 750 S special edition has a glossy black body with red rims and accents throughout the utility vehicle.
“The mPACT XTV has been a popular addition to our product line-up, leading to the introduction of seven new models to meet customer demand.
