Auto maker Mahindra & Mahindra on Thursday said that it will begin its US operations in the first quarter of 2010 with two new variants of SUV Scorpio besides two vehicles in the Indian market over the next six months.
The company also said reports about recall of some of its Scorpio and Xylo vehicles are false.
“In the US market, we are going to start off with the Scorpio single cabin and double cabin in the first quarter of next year. In future, we will have newer models coming in,” Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) President (Automotive Sector) Pawan Goenka told PTI on the sidelines of ACMA annual conference here in the capital.
He said, the company will initially sell its models in the US market as completely built units shipped out from India.
“If we get good volumes, then we will look at local assembly (in US). It depends on the market and how our products are accepted there,” Mr. Goenka said.
The company had earlier announced that it had made investments worth Rs 300 crore on product development for its US operation.
