Ballistic Testing completed in accordance with BSI PAS 300
We are the first company to achieve the new Internationally Government recognized British Standard Institute (BSI) specification called PAS 300. The new PAS 300 standard has been sponsored by the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI), it is based on the Vehicle Security Advisory Group (VSAG) VSAG 12 standard for testing.
The new Civilian armoured vehicle standard BSI PAS 300 describes test methods for assessing the ballistic and blast performance of civilian armoured vehicles.
It defines test levels for ballistic impact (including handgun, shotgun and rifle) and blast resistance for side blast, under vehicle blast and roof blast. As part of the ballistic test it also includes fragment simulating projectile tests.
The four test methods described by this PAS are based on the work by the Vehicle Security Advisory Group (VSAG) and are designed to meet the needs of both the European and international markets.
Founded in 1945 as a steel trading company, Mahindra & Mahindra entered automotive manufacturing in 1947 to bring the iconic Willys Jeep onto Indian roads.

The vehicle scored highly in the handling assessment that was completed. When driven on the steady state circle and the speed increased progressively, the vehicle was composed and well balanced, understeer was progressive and there was no oversteer evident during the manoeuvre. It was noted that the braking performance was better than would be expected for a vehicle of this size and weight.
