The launch of the Mahindra XUV700 marks a fresh start for the brand in New Zealand, considering it did not bring new products to the market in recent years. The XUV700’s launch was also delayed owing to supply chain constraints. Considering the high waiting period in India itself, the delay isn’t surprising.
