Anand Mahindra makes sure that he is present on Twitter in the most noticeable way. This time, the industrialist took it to the social media platform to address footballer Harry Kane’s missed penalty against France, which the England captain missed during the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup 2022. Mahindra Group Chairman asked netizens, how would you react to Harry Kane missing a penalty if you were his coach? He further added that the best entries for this response to the missed penalty will receive a miniature Mahindra vehicle from their side. In fact, Mahindra mentioned the deadline for the entries till 9 PM on December 14.
Harry Kane for missing the penalty. If you were his coach, what would you say to him at this point in time? in 1 or 2 sentences. The coolest ‘coach’ (in my opinion) will get a Mahindra die-cast miniature vehicle. Entries accepted until Wednesday 14 December at 9am. #Leadership pic.twitter.com/CIFlX3eQJJ— Anand Mahindra (@anandmahindra) December 13, 2022
In other news, the 2022 Mahindra Scorpio-N has become the first body-on-frame SUV to achieve a 5-star rating in the new crash test protocol of the Global New Car Assessment Program (GNCAP), which came into effect from 1 July 2022. The all-new Scorpio-N has achieved 5-star and 3-star ratings for adult and child passenger safety respectively. In addition, the Scorpio-N also complied with additional tests including Pole Side Impact, Pedestrian Protection UN127, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and its fitment as per GTR8, and Side Head Protection Airbag fitment.
As a result, the new Mahindra Scorpio-N has become the first body-on-frame SUV to achieve a 5-star rating in the new GNCAP crash test protocol. Apart from this, the company has recently announced the recall of its newly launched Scorpio-N and XUV700. The company suspects a defective rubber bellow in the bell housing of cars assembled between July 1 and November 11. As per the notification, around 19,000 mods are affected and its owners have been contacted for inspection.
The brand revealed that the reason for the recall is a sorting process error. An error occurred at the supplier’s manufacturing facility, which resulted in incorrect dimensional clearance of the rubber bellows. Thankfully, the company is ensuring that the dealerships are personally connecting with the owners to conduct a smooth inspection-correction process.
