Mahindra and Mahindra, one of the largest homegrown automobile manufacturers today has announced a voluntary recall of over 600 of its vehicles. Although the company hasn’t revealed any specific model in its line-up that will be recalled but seeing as the announcement is regarding the production period between 21st June to 2nd July at the Nasik plant in Maharashtra which is responsible for the production of models like Mahindra Thar, Bolero, Scorpio and XUV300.
