Mahindra Bolero is a 7 seater SUV which has gained its popularity in the rural as well as urban lifestyle. This is the go-to 7 seater for someone who wants space and higher seating capacity car from a trusted manufacturer. In a recent tweet, Anand Mahindra has tweeted about a Mahindra Bolero which has been fitted with a toilet. So how can this modification make such a big difference?
I’m sure our auto accessories division never thought such an addition would be in demand. Covid has created a new landscape of needs! Gives a new meaning to the term ‘luggage’ 😊 https://t.co/hPw1vDEFtR

New Problems New Solution
New fears have developed in the minds of the people during these COVID-19 crises. These are with using public places. With the already existing phobia of using public toilets during road trips, this new virus has made people even more hesitant. As a solution, a toilet is provided inside the car itself.
Sounds crazy? How does it work? Does it cost much? Can you fit it in your car?
Toilet Inside a Car!
Ojes Automobiles is the company who has modified a Mahindra Bolero by fitting a complete toilet system inside the car. This is placed in the third row of seats where the Mahindra Bolero is regularly fitted with sideways facing jump seats. The toilet itself is a Vacuum toilet as seen on Airplanes. It does make use of water though. The water is stored in 2 tanks which are GRP coated aluminium tanks. These tanks do not give the tension of leaks and corrosion. The water is supplied with the help of 12V battery-operated motors. This draws power from the vehicle’s main power supply.
This toilet is not some crude prototype. It is a fancy unit which is imported from a foreign manufacturer. The initial price of this is Rs 65,000 but there are labour and fitment charges which will add on. Also, maintenance is something that has not been disclosed yet. As a cookie point, this toilet has a touch-based panel for controlling various functions.
Can Your Car Have it too?
Yes, this toilet fitment can be made to any car who has a roof to floor height of 40 inches. The OJES Automobiles is a company that is experienced with making Caravans and are very familiar with installing toilets and other modifications to a car. They specialise in a lot of modifications which include special vehicles like Ambulances, ATM vans, Vanity Vans and Mobile homes.
