Mahindra Pantero tied up with
Mahindra launched a Hindi site for
promoting the Pantero.
The Hindi version could only be viewed
on mobile phones while the English
version was available on desktops.
Mahindra launched an interactive
website dedicated to ‘Pantero’ –
showcasing 360 degree view and
information like specifications, features,
dealer locator, test ride bookings, price.
The focus has been mainly digital and

irrelavent campaign has been running so
Background Study of Past Campaigns
Designed keeping in mind the travelling

Backing of the brand Mahindra.
Longest in class SEAT.
Mileage of 79.4 kmpl.

Competitors like - Hero Splendor, Bajaj
Discover, Yamaha SZ, Honda Dream Neo.
Inconsistency in positioning of the parent

Presence only in digital media. Non virtual

km test drive
•Giving bikes to people for test drive near bus stands, metros, railways
and their offices for a day, and capture their experience/views.

The earlier campaigns were very boring and easily forgettable – hence
INEFFECTIVE. People found no relevance to those ads in their lives – our current
campaign is bound to change it all – where consumers will be able to relate to the
protagonist unlike the Panther.
