Speaking to an online media channel, Veejay Ram Nakra, Senior Vice-president, Sales & Customer Care, automotive sector, M&M said that “The new Bolero models can be booked and are available for retail starting today. The existing Bolero models will, however, continue to sell alongside the new model variants and over a period of time, based on the market dynamics, we will take a call on the old models. Nevertheless, I would like to clarify that there is a large section that currently uses the Bolero models in the upcountry areas for transportation of people. So for that we have certain variants of the Bolero that will continue to sell in their existing avatars,”.
