Mahindra to start XUV700 deliveries from this weekend, aims 14,000 by January 14
Mahindra XUV700 is finally all set to hit Indian roads. Mahindra will start delivery of its new flagship XUV700 from Saturday (October 30). Mahindra has already received more than 65,000 bookings for the XUV700 since its launch last month.
Mahindra will initially start delivery of the petrol variants of the XUV700 to its customers. The carmaker is aiming to deliver at least 14,000 XUV700s by January 14 next year. However, the carmaker has also issued a disclaimer saying ‘due to the global pandemic and its impact on supply chain, delivery dates may get delayed’.
Mahindra had launched the XUV700 SUV last month at an introductory starting price of ₹11.99 lakh (ex showroom). It was revised after Mahindra received the first 25,000 booking for the XUV700. The starting price tag is now at ₹12.49 lakh (ex showroom). The price goes up to ₹22 .89 lakh (ex-showroom) for the top-spec trim AX7 Luxury (Seven seater) +AWD.
