Mahindra & Mahindra's Business Head- Small Commercial Vehicles, Satinder Singh Bajwa, while speaking about the new Jeeto Plus, stated, "With the launch of Jeeto Plus, Mahindra offers an excellent value proposition for its customers. In line with its brand promise of 'Badi Gadi, Badi Kamai, Badi Kamoyabi', Jeeto Plus enables the customers to earn more profitability and prosperity."
"This mini-truck's stylish looks, car-like comfort and unmatched safety will build on the popularity of the original Jeeto mini-truck. We firmly believe that Jeeto Plus will make its mark in the Indian market with its qualities and competitive price like our products in other segments," Bajwa added.
