Mahindra recently launched the all-new Mahindra XUV700 in India. The bookings for the new Mahindra XUV700 commenced yesterday, i.e. on 7th October at an introductory starting price of Rs 11.99 lakh and the company received 25,000 bookings for the SUV in just 57 minutes. Now, the bookings for the SUV commenced today once again at an increased yet introductory starting price of Rs 12.49 lakh, ex-showroom, and all of its 25,000 units were booked in just 2 hours.
The Mahindra XUV700 has been a blockbuster hit for the carmaker. The company has received cumulative 50,000 bookings for the new XUV700 in just three hours and that translates into an ex-showroom value of approximately Rs 9,500 crores. The bookings for the SUV are still open in India and one can book it online or by visiting their nearest Mahindra dealership. However, the attractive introductory prices are no longer valid. For all further bookings, the prices at the time of delivery will prevail.
