Jeeto is a Hindi word that means ‘Win!’ No matter how difficult your terrain might be, why stop? Moving inventories around isn’t an issue anymore because trucks like the Mahindra Jeeto comes at a really low price tag. A business would even be able to own multiple of these trucks and grow the business at an exponential scale. Despite being a mini truck, the Mahindra Jeeto flaunts a sporty look and utilitarian approach to driving through difficult earth surfaces. It may not serve the purpose of a family car, but certainly knows how to win rough situations. And if you need a decent mileage of around 30 kmpl from a mini truck, look no further!
Workhorse trucks can be dirt cheap, too. The Mahindra Jeeto comes at a price of Rs. 2.6 lacs and EMI options are offered as well. A customer needs to pay at least Rs. 54,000 as a down payment before making a deed, and over a tenure of 36 months the monthly repayment amount is Rs. 7,166 per month. 12% of interest would apply.
Mahindra Jeeto’s engine displacement is only 625 cc. The truck is meant to carry small goods across a city or between two cities at one stretch, and not a whole lot of power is required for the purpose. The 625 cc engine offers 11.9 bhp maximum power at 3,600 rpm and the torque is 38 Nm at 1,200 – 2,200 rpm. Although it’s a little figure, but considering the truck’s dimensions we have to say – it’s enough.
The transmission system used is a 5-speed manual unit with single plate dry clutch for effectively engaging gears. It’s a soft and easy to use clutch but the drivers may require some practice for fluid shifting of gears.
The truck is dirt cheap and at this price point, one shouldn’t expect to have air conditioning or anti-lock braking system. However, the steering is tilt-able to a comfortable angle. Also, disc brakes are used unlike some trucks in the similar pricing category.
If the design is taken into concern; we are certainly pleased at the latest headlamp technology, higher ground clearance, much improved and aerodynamic design etc. The dash board looks like a more premium truck, and the interior comes in two-color tones.
