Mahindra's separate divisions for SCVs gave it an edge over the competition

Experts believe that Mahindra's separate SCVs division assisted the company to clock better volumes as compared to its rivals. Notably, Tata Motors' major stay is a medium and heavy CV which is subject to various economic and policy factors.

It was two years ago when the company formed a separate vertical of small commercial vehicles business, under which the brand sells three-wheelers, passenger carriers, electric three-wheelers and even load carriers below 2.5 ton. With the increasing demand from the CV market, the company opened 225 outlets across the country in just two years.

The small commercial vehicle segment witnessed growth due to the rise of e-commerce and the hub-n-spoke model post-GST, making it one of the fastest emerging segments in the domestic market. Additionally, a strong rural market has resulted in better performance of the SCV businesses as compared to M&HCVs. Industry experts also believe that the M&HCV segment is already affected with additional capacity in the market. And, the pandemic situation has further deteriorated the M&HCVs market due to sudden lockdowns.
