XUV300’s diesel powertrain beats the petrol ones by sales volume, though by a very small margin

Mahindra is known for its SUVs, how butch they are and what they can do on and off the road and this popularity has always helped the carmaker sustain sales. Mahindra offers its SUVs with both petrol and diesel powertrain options, and here, we will take a look at the petrol-diesel sales split for the month of January 2023 of some popular Mahindra SUVs:

Sales of the petrol variants of the Thar have been declining for quite some time now and buyers are more inclined towards getting a diesel-powered Thar. In January 2023, the lifestyle SUV’s diesel variants crossed the 4,000 unit-sales mark, while its petrol variants were hanging in the lower 300 figures.
