(Note – The Mahindra XUV500 bookings did not reach a
whopping 6000 in 2 days, Infact as per the official press release bookings have crossed 5,000+ in a mere 6 days and across only 5 cities. We apologize for the mistake and the error is regretted)
Mahindra and Mahindra recently launched the much awaited XUV500 alias W201 SUV on September and in just two days the bookings reach a whopping 6000, according to the reports. The competitive Mahindra XUV 500 price of Rs 10.8 lakhs for the base variant has worked wonders in Mahindra’s favour. The Mahindra XUV 500 was launched in both the two-wheel drive and the four-wheel drive variants – W6 4×2 , W8 4×2 and W8 4×4.
Undoubtedly Mahindra XUV 500 apparently scores high on many points like, it offers a spacious interiors accommodating seven passengers similar to any other premier SUV. The Mahindra SUV comes loaded with many features like cruise control, touch screen enabled music system with steering mounted audio controls, power-folding rear view mirrors, glove box and puddle lamps.
The XUV500 is a well proportioned vehicle which looks athletic and sharp from plenty of angles and in plenty of places. Mahindra & Mahindra insists that the new SUV’s design has taken inspiration from cheetah, known to be the fastest animal on land. The jaw-like front grille, the paw-styled handles, the pouncing cheetah body line and the haunches inspired by those of a cheetah are some of the most prominent cues taken from the body of the magnificent beast.
The Mahindra XUV 500 with its dynamic looks is capable of warding off the competition from other competitors like Tata Aria and Tata Safari. The SUV is well equipped in regards to the safety features as well with, six airbags for avoiding injuries for passengers as well as the driver, ABS, traction control, EBD, ESP along with hill descent control.
The 6000 bookings for the SUV do not come as a surprise with the competitive pricing. However, the Indian auto major has to take serious steps to bring down the waiting period for the SUV. With the kind of response, the wait period for the SUV is expected to reach 3 months. The production capacity of Mahindra’s Chakan plant stands to be 2000 units, which the company intends to increase based on the demand. One can only hope the best for Mahindra, which has launched its best product from its stable till-date. Imagine all the 6000 bookings converting into sales; then there are no bounds for the impending success.
