Mumbai : The 162nd edition of the Mahindra Great Escape concluded successfully in Lonavala with over 90 vehicles from the Mahindra stable, both 2WD and 4WD, steering the challenging route. This Great Escape saw participation from Mahindra customers from Mumbai, Nashik, Pune and neighboring areas for both Trail Drive and Trophy Challenge.

The event was flagged off from Club Mahindra, Tungi at Lonavala and presented an opportunity to explore the area’s scenic terrain which is cool and vegetation lush & green in the monsoon season. The event saw involvement of 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.


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.  

Pushker Prakash grabbed the first place in the Stock Category, Abhijeet Dhumal Deshmukh won the Modified Category and Dr. Vani Parmar won the Ladies Class Category.


The Mahindra Great Escape was first conceptualized 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. The winners of various Great Escapes held throughout the year, will compete for the grand prize; a new Thar 4*4 at the Off-Roading Trophy which will be held at the Mahindra Off-Roading Academy, Igatpuri next year.
