2021 is going to be a rather happening year for Mahindra but there’s one catch. The pandemic has started playing spoilsport again and the second wave has forced manufacturers to delay their planned launches. One of the most hotly anticipated car launches of this year has to be the Mahindra XUV700. Apart from all the trademarks registered by the company, it is the XUV700 which we are sure that it will become a thing of reality because the company itself has confirmed its launch.
And now, the company has setup a micro website of the new XUV700, where interested buyers can register so that they can get updates.
Mahindra has also setup an ad on Google, which comes up as the first result when you search for the keyword Mahindra XUV700. As per this ad, Mahindra has described the XUV700 as – “Built on a global platform with expert partners offering first-in-class features. Available across Diesel & Petrol engines, manual & automatic transmissions, optional AWD. World Class Safety. Diesel & Petrol Engines. With Sci-Fi Tech.”It will offer both Diesel and Gasoline engines in Manual and Automatic transmissions, along with optional All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) capabilities.
The XUV700 will get both diesel and petrol engine options along with both manual and automatic transmission options. The XUV700, which is slated to be launched in Q2 FY2022, will be manufactured at the company’s manufacturing facility at Chakan in Maharashtra.
As soon as Mahindra announced that its upcoming 7-seater SUV will go by the name ‘XUV700’, the whole automotive industry went into a state of frenzy. The opinions are polarized to say the least. Some reports are claiming that Mahindra has dropped the name XUV500 altogether and the new-gen XUV500 which has been spied on many occasions has now been renamed to XUV700. While on the other hand, this is not Mahindra renaming the XUV500 to XUV700. This baby is simply an all-new 7 seater SUV that will be launched in India in Q2 FY2022. The mist will get clear as soon as more information flows in.
In other related news, Mahindra has also trademarked the following names – XUV100, XUV400 and XUV900. It will be interesting to see how the homegrown carmaker decides to place these upcoming SUVs.
