Mahindra has delivered the country's first BS 6-compliant Alturas G4 SUV to the President of India. The vehicle was delivered at the Rashtrapati Bhavan and was received by the Joint Secretary on behalf of the President.

The Alturas G4 delivered to the President features an all-black paint scheme. On the other hand, there is no confirmation on any other custom tweak done on the vehicle.

It can be safely assumed that Mahindra will now initiate the delivery of the BS 6 Alturas G4 SUV to the regular customers. What's to be noted is that the SUV was introduced in the Indian market earlier this year.

For the record, the current official vehicle of the President of India is a Mercedes Benz S Class (S600) Pullman Guard.

Also, it is unconfirmed if the Mahindra Alturas will be used as the President's official vehicle, though the chances are unlikely.
