Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) has announced its entry into new segment of mini trucks by launching its Gio (Mahindra Gio) commercial vehichle today, 28th October 2009.

Calling it "India's first compact truck", the Gio is priced at Rs 1.65 lakh, slotting in between the more expensive Tata Ace at nearly Rs 2.78 lakh and the ubiquitious three-wheeler, priced at Rs 1.38 lakh.

Mahindra Gio uses a two-cylinder, 441cc, diesel engine that produces 9.1 bhp and 2.2 kgm of peak torque. The engine is developed by Kohler and is made at Kohler’s facilities in India, whereas 4-speed manual transmission is developed by Mahindra itself.

The Gio has a payload of 0.5 tonne, with a GVW of a little over 1.1 tonne. Unlike other mini-trucks, mahindra Gio uses front independent suspension rather than leaf springs.

The Gio will be sold in two phases. The first phase will involve the North, East and Western parts of India and the vehicle will be available right away. The second phase will see the vehicle being launched in the south, which should happen by January 2010. Mahindra will retail the vehicle through 500 points and 150 dealerships.
