Johannesburg: Mahindra South Africa reported its best annual sales in a decade of operating in the country during 2013, bolstered primarily due to government tenders.
The company sold 4 056 units of the range it offers in South Africa, maintaining a consistent upwards sales trend with a four per cent increase on the previous year.
"We are very happy with our performance in a very competitive market," Mahindra SA chief executive Ashok Thakur said.
"We now have 12 product lines in our local range of Mahindra and SsangYong vehicles and I am pleased to report that sales volumes were up in all but two of the model ranges."
He said the most popular model in the Mahindra offering remained the Scorpio which made up about a third of the sales.
