The insurance plan can be availed between October 1 and November 30 on the Bolero pickup range which includes the pick-up Maxi Truck, City pickup and Camper, the company said in a release.

The Free Corona Insurance is a floater health insurance cover for up to Rs 1 lakh that will cover the customer, his/her spouse and up to two of the customer's children and will remain valid for a period of 9.5 months from the date of purchase of the new vehicle, Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M) said.

The pick-up customer is one whose job involves travel, providing essential services, where they can't avoid interacting with people around the clock. An industry-first initiative on our Bolero pick-up range, this corona insurance initiative coincides with the start of Mahindra's 75th year," said Satinder Singh Bajwa, Senior Vice President for Sales and Customer Care, Automotive Division, M&M.
