Mahindra & Mahindra to expand intra-city LCV line-up

Mumbai-based Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) is set to expand its light commercial vehicle (LCV) portfolio, targeting a gap in the market for intra-city goods movement.

The company aims to launch seven new LCVs by 2030, focusing on the currently underserved multi-fuel, large (1.7-2 tonnes) and medium (1.3-1.5 tonnes) categories. This strategic move positions M&M to capture a growing segment, particularly in the Middle East and Latin American markets, according to an investor presentation.

M&M, boasting a dominant 49% market share in LCV sales (FY24), seeks to capitalize on the industry's reliance on single and double cabin options. Currently, M&M offers the Camper and Maxx ranges catering primarily to intercity transportation. However, the upcoming launches will target intra-city logistics with a variety of fuel options, including electric vehicles, all falling under the 3.5-tonne weight limit.

This targeted expansion leverages M&M's existing stronghold in the small LCV segment (1-1.2T payload) with popular models like Supro and Jeeto. By introducing new fuel-efficient LCVs for medium and large payloads, including in the electric versions, M&M is looking to positions itself to be beef up its portfolio. 

The announcement comes amidst a surge in e-commerce and on-demand delivery services across the globe.
