Mahindra has delivered the first-ever personalized XUV700 to the Olympic medalist Sumit Antil. The company took to Twitter to share the latest announcement. Antil has clinched a gold medal in men's javelin throw F64 category at the 2020 Summer Paralympics.
The Mahindra Group chairman Anand Mahindra has announced in the past that the XUV700 Javelin Edition will be gifted to the gold medal winners at the Tokyo Olympics 2020. Called the XUV700 Javelin Edition, the SUV will also be gifted to Neeraj Chopra, and Avani Lekhara, who managed to secure gold medals at the recently held Olympics/Paralympics.
The new XUV700 Javelin Edition honours the Olympic gold medalists with a special paint livery. The car adorns a golden hue which can be found on the front vertical grille slats, rear decals, and also on the brand logo. Inside, the car features a similar golden treatment that gels well with its exterior golden theme. Save for the changes to the aesthetics, the rest of the details remain unchanged.
The company has previously announced that it has already received more than 65,000 bookings for the XUV700 since its launch. Customer deliveries are also set to begin today and the company is aiming to deliver at least 14,000 XUV700s by January 14 next year.
The flagship XUV was initially launched at ₹11.99 lakh (ex-showroom). The pricing was then revised after the company received the first 25,000 bookings for the XUV700. Currently, the car costs in the range of ₹12.49 lakh (ex-showroom) to ₹22 .89 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec trim AX7 Luxury (Seven seater) +AWD.
