The 150th edition of the
Mahindra Great Escape – one of India’s most popular off-road adventures,
concluded successfully in Lonavala on July 14, with over 60 vehicles from the
Mahindra stable, both 2WD and 4WD, maneuvering the challenging route. This
Great Escape saw participation from Mahindra customers from Mumbai, Nashik,
Pune and neighboring areas.
The event was flagged off from
Club Mahindra, Tungi at Lonavala and presented an opportunity to explore the
area’s scenic terrain which is particularly lush in the monsoon season. The
event saw participation from the entire stable of Mahindra vehicles which
included Boleros, Scorpios, XUVs, KUVs and the extreme off-roader – Mahindra
Thar CRDe 4x4 – each representing the company’s tough and rugged DNA. These
iconic Mahindra SUVs successfully took on the arduous and slushy terrain of
Lonavala in the lap of nature.
Lonavala offered a picturesque
setting for a day of fun-filled off-roading. The scenic yet strenuous terrain
ensured that there were ample challenges for all off-roading enthusiasts.
Located close to both Mumbai and Pune, Lonavala gave auto enthusiasts the
perfect opportunity to enjoy the monsoon and tackle the challenging route.
This year, the competitors got
a chance to demonstrate their off-road driving skills through different stages
of the natural terrain. There were specially designed tracks for both 2WD and
4WD vehicles, the latter being more challenging. From slippery and steep
inclines and descents, to driving through flowing streams and slush, the
participants had a chance to experience the true capability of their vehicles
and at the same time enjoy the thrill of off-roading.
The Mahindra Great Escape was
first conceptualised in 1996 as a non-competitive, off-road event meant to
encourage Mahindra customers to test the strength and performance of their
vehicles on terrain other than tarmac. Over the years, the Great Escape has
developed the reputation of being one of India’s most thrilling off-road events
with each edition seeing enthusiastic participation from die-hard Mahindra fans
and customers across the country.
