Mahindra is celebrating its recent surge in vehicle sales with the launch of the Pik Up S10 Karoo Edition.
“The Mahindra Pik Up S10 Karoo Edition is an encore to the special S6 Karoo Edition, which was launched in December last year and which sold out very quickly. With the higher S10 specification level, this model is sure to sell out as fast,” says Rajesh Gupta, CEO of Mahindra South Africa.
It will launch with the S10 Pik Up specification level, which means that it will include satellite navigation, cruise control and a multi-function steering wheel and everything that comes with the Karoo trim package. This adds a special black cosmetic package, which includes blacked out off-road alloy wheels, a dark nudge bar and a dark branded roll bar.
Mahindra also added a tonneau cover, flared rear wheel arches that complement the front arches, and a wind deflector kit on both the front and rear windows. The special edition is available in either white or silver.
For this special S10 edition, Mahindra will give buyers the option of the Karoo Edition cosmetic package or a colour coded canopy. This means that buyers can opt for the S10 Karoo Edition or an S10 with a white or silver colour coded Beekman luxury canopy, for the same price.
Mahindra has confirmed that the first batch of S10 Karoo Edition Pik Ups have been completely taken up by dealers and that it will assemble a second consignment at its new assembly facility in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.
The Karoo S10 retails for just R5000 more than the standard S10 Pik Up. This means buyers can opt for the 4×2 Double Cab Pik Up Karoo Edition for R337 999 or the 4×4 version for R368 999. Both models are sold with a 4-year / 120 000 km warranty and a 5-year / 90 000 km service plan.
