Dr Pawan Goenka, Managing Director of Mahindra and Mahindra Group has purchased his first car in 26 years. Interestingly, instead of going for an ultra luxurious vehicle, Mr Goenka went for a rather humble Mahindra XUV300 SUV. Dr Pawan Goenka took the delivery of his Mahindra XUV300 on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi and he chose the red shade for his brand new possession. Pawan Goenka shared his happiness of owning a brand new Mahindra XUV300 through Twitter on which he posted the pictures posing with his latest set of wheels. Goenka said that he has driven the Mahindra XUV300 multiple times before but now driving it as a customer and owner is a complete different excitement.
