Hindustan Motors Limited, flagship venture of the multi-billion dollar CK Birla Group, launched its 41st dealership of the company's Mitsubishi division in Bangalore. This would increase the availability of its much hyped sports utility vehicle, Pajero Sports as local assembling of its completely knocked down kits has begun.
Hindustan Motors Limited is equipped with integrated facilities such as press shop, forge shop, foundry, machine shop and aggregate assembly units for engines and axles.
M/s SVR Motors in Bangalore is a full-fledged 3S (sales, service and spares) dealership and is owned by Mr. Amar Prasad. The showroom is spread across 2800 square feet in Richmond Road. Its service workshop is built in an area of 15,500 square feet in Muniswamappa Industrial Area, Bommannahalli, with an adjoining 1500-square feet facility for spare parts. It has 17 bays where 48 employees can take care of 35 vehicles per day.
The local assembling of the Pajero Sports at its Tiruvallur Plant near Chennai has helped in cutting down the price of the vehicle by 1.87 lakhs. It is priced at Rs. 22.56 lac (ex-showroom Delhi).
Mr. Uttam Bose, Managing Director, Hindustan Motors Ltd., said, "With the launch of SVR Motors as our dealership today, Bangaloreans will now find it easier to procure some of the world's best SUVs… I am referring to Mitsubishi's legendary and unmatched machines like Montero, Pajero Sport and Outlander. Pajero holds the record of 13 consecutive victories in Dakar Rally - one of the most difficult inter-continental automobile racing contests. Its latest model, Pajero Sport, has taken the SUV world by storm not just in India but wherever it has been launched in Asia in the recent past. The robust off-roader has already made its mark in the Western world."
