Mahindra has discontinued its popular XUV500 after the launch of the latest XUV700 in the country. Mahindra dealers have also stopped accepting bookings for the XUV500, although the SUV remains listed on the official website.

A company representative has also confirmed to HT Auto that the homegrown automaker has halted the production of its popular XUV500. Though some reports suggest that XUV500 may make a comeback as a five-seat model to compete with Hyundai Creta, MG Hector, and the Tata Harrier, but that remains unconfirmed at the moment.
