It is notable that earlier MTB had introduced its BLAZO range of Heavy Commercial Vehicles with the hugely successful 'Mileage Guarantee', which subsequently helped double its market share.
Said Dr. Pawan Goenka, MD, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, "Mahindra FURIO is the culmination of focused efforts over the past 4 years from more than 500 Mahindra engineers and 180 suppliers with an investment of ₹600 crores. The launch reflects our commitment to the segment and confidence in our product. It is also an outcome of substantial investments in the CV business. Today, we are probably the first and possibly the only CV brand in the world to have an end-to-end presence from 3 wheelers to 49-ton trucks. With Pininfarina design, the FURIO is set to be a game changer; the design gives the new truck one of the safest, most ergonomic and comfortable cabins, which will set new standards."
Rajan Wadhera, President, Automotive Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., said, "The ICV category is highly competitive, however, we are confident of making our mark with our Customer Value Proposition, focusing on maximizing the earnings of our customers. Our strong technological acumen and ability to gather and process customer insights have helped us devise category best products such as the Mahindra FURIO, with guaranteed higher profit."
According to, Vinod Sahay, CEO, Mahindra Truck and Bus and Construction Equipment Divisions, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., "Mahindra FURIO is designed around the unaddressed needs of ICV customers who want a truck that can deliver higher earnings, lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), give the highest warranty, lowest maintenance and yet have world-class, no-compromise safety and comfort. Mahindra FURIO meets all these expectations, and a very competitive initial price offer as well, and we are confident of guaranteeing higher profits or take the truck back."
FURIO also ensures best-in-class safety and comfort in a segment that has the maximum high-speed applications among all CV segments in India.
