The Mahindra XUV700 has achieved a milestone that no Indian car has been able to yet. The highly anticipated SUV got sold out in just 57 minutes of its bookings opening! The first slot was for 25,000 bookings for which the introductory prices were applicable. This amounts to almost 6 months worth of bookings. Mahindra has now hiked the prices for the XUV700 and the new prices will be applicable for bookings which will re-open again tomorrow on 8th October at 10 am. Potential customers can book the XUV700 via Mahindra’s website or at dealerships. Let’s take a look at the new prices:
Updated Price List
Prices have been hiked up by ₹50,000 for the entry-level variants. The AX7 range sees a price hike in the range of ₹40,000 to ₹10,000.
Veejay Nakra, CEO, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd., said, “We opened bookings at 10 am this morning. We are humbled and grateful for the response, in fact, thrilled that we have received 25000 XUV700 bookings in a record time of 57 minutes from its commencement. This constitutes up to six months of production depending on the variant at the committed launch prices. While we had anticipated the traffic and prepared our system with added server capacity, the overwhelming response could have regrettably led to a slow user experience by some of our customers.”
