As for Bhagwant Mann’s vehicles, it is interesting to know that the comedian-turned-politician owns the Chevrolet Cruze sedan which was discontinued a long time ago when the company left the Indian market. Yet it retained the premium sedan despite exponential depreciation.
On the other hand, a brand new Toyota Fortuner starts at Rs 31 lakh (ex-showroom) and goes up to Rs 45 lakh depending on the variant purchased. Toyota Fortuner is a favorite among politicians across the country. Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s convoy has several armored Toyota Fortuners.
