Anand Mahindra, Mahindra Group chairman, is amazed to see Mahindra Bolero SUV's water-wading potentiality in flooded streets in Rajkot, Gujarat. The 30-second video shows a Bolero deputed in Rajkot Police duty wading through the water where no other cars are seen on the road.

Anand Mahindra reacted to the viral video, responding that Bolero's potential has left even him quite impressed. “Seriously? During the recent rains? Even I am pretty amazed," Mahindra wrote on Twitter. 

Extremely heavy rains lashed Rajkot and Jamnagar in Gujarat over the last 24 hours, following which more than 200 people stranded in the flood waters were rescued and over 7,000 people shifted to safer places in the two districts, officials said. 

A national highway in Jamnagar and 18 state highways passing through Rajkot, Jamnagar and Junagadh districts of the Saurashtra region were closed due to flooding, affecting traffic movement.

Mahindra & Mahindra has recently launched a seven-seater model Bolero Neo in the country with a price starting from 8.48 lakh (ex-showroom). 

The new Bolero Neo will cater to the evolving customers looking for an SUV that is tough and authentic yet modern and trendy, the automaker noted. The existing Bolero will continue to sell along with the Bolero Neo in the market, it added. 

"The Bolero Neo combines the new age customer's affinity towards a tough, powerful, go-anywhere capable SUVs with their persona and aspirations for a modern and trendy SUV," M&M CEO Automotive Division Veejay Nakra said in a statement.
