Mahindra XUV700

Mahindra unveiled the all-new XUV700 in August 2021 while its official prices were revealed in September last year. The new Mahindra XUV700 became instantly popular in the country and close to 1 lakh units of the SUV have been booked already. Thanks to production constraints owing to supply chain issues and semiconductor shortage, the XUV700 commands a long waiting period. However, the company has managed to complete the billing process of 14,000 units of the Mahindra XUV700 within three months. 

The customer deliveries of the petrol variants of the XUV700 began in the last week of October while the deliveries of the diesel variants of the SUV commenced in the last week of November 2021. Now, within three months, Mahindra has achieved the milestone of 14,000 billings of the XUV700. But, thanks to huge demand and production constraints, the waiting period of the XUV700 is currently hovering between 6-10 months for a majority of the variants while the top-spec AX7 L trim demands a waiting period of up to 20 months in certain cities.
