Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M), reportedly the fastest-growing auto brand in South Africa, has now launched its range of vehicles in Kenya.

The company has appointed Simba Corporation as the sole dealer for Kenya. The dealership, which will trade under Xylon Motors, will sell models such as the XUV500 SUV, the Scorpio SUV and the pick-up range — the Genio Pick-Up and the Maxximo mini-truck.

Simba Corporation has invested close to 600 milion shillings in Xylon Motors. The dealership will also provide complete servicing facilities and an extensive after sales department supplying parts and accessories.

“Our range of utility vehicles and pick-ups have carved a distinct niche for themselves in markets across the world including Europe, South Africa, Egypt, South and Central America and Australia and I’m sure Kenya will be no exception,” said Mr Sanjay Jadhav, Senior General Manager, Exports (Africa & Middle East), M&M.

M&M’s tractors are sold in Kenya through Timsales, a part of the Rai Group. Its African footprint extends to Egypt, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Ghana, Nigeria, Sudan and South Africa where the company has a joint venture.
