Mahindra has been noting good response to the new Alturas G4 premium SUV. The first customer has taken delivery of his new Alturas even as company dealerships have reported overwhelming response. Launched late last year, Anand Mahindra too has taken delivery of a brand new Alturas G4 SUV.
Flagship Mahindra SUV is priced at Rs.26.95 lakhs for the base variant while the top of the line fully loaded 4×4 version carries a price tag of Rs.29.95 lakhs. It is the top variant which has been purchased by Mr Mahindra. Unlike other Mahindra cars, this new SUV is sold exclusively through special ‘World of SUV’s’ dealerships with Relationship Managers appointed for each buyer.
Speaking about his new car, Mr Mahindra tweeted – “Finally took delivery of my Alturas G4. I named my TUV 3OO plus the ‘Grey Ghost.’ Need a name for this new beautiful beast. All ideas welcome. The person who suggests the chosen name will get 2 Mahindra die cast scale models (Not the Alturas scale model—that’s not ready yet!)”
The tweet was posted about an hour back, and it already has received tremendous response. More than 1,800 likes, over 150 retweets and over 2,500 comments / name suggestions. Some of the name suggestions are – Dark Knight, India + Mahindra = Indra, Black Mountain, Kala Ghoda, Mahindra Bucephalus (Bucephalus was the horse of Alexander the great), Mahindra Everest and so on.
One of the name suggestion which caught attention of Mr Mahindra is Kalbhasma – Black Ash. It is suggested by @vidarbhaveer. The user adds, that “it is a Sanskrit word. Hope mahindra will dedicate some Sanskrit name to some model….someday.” To this Mr Mahindra replied, “Yes I would prefer to use a name this time from an Indian language…Keep the ideas coming…”
