The XUV700 was one of the most hotly anticipated car launches of this year. It was so hotly anticipated for its aggressive design and segment-first features. The car has also delivered on the hype getting over 50,000 bookings on the first day. But Mahindra is looking to continue this momentum by constantly keeping the XUV700 in news with updates and other things. In today’s article, we will see three new things we learned of the XUV700.
Some features will go
The semiconductor shortage has ravaged the automakers. Mahindra is also facing severe production constraints. They might revamp their entire variant lineup to tackle the chip shortage issue. Mahindra has already removed wireless charging from the XUV700. In the coming months, it is expected to remove some minor features to tackle the chip shortage. A good thing about this is that Mahindra is giving customers a choice. If the customers want these features, then they will have the option to wait.
As mentioned above, Mahindra is facing severe production constraints. So Mahindra is not able to give a proper delivery timeline to the customers. But Mahindra is sharing regular updates with its customers regarding the delivery timeline. It has already started deliveries for petrol variants, while deliveries of diesel variants will begin by the end of November.
GNCAP crash test
Safety has become an integral part of Mahindra’s philosophy. So it comes as no surprise that the XUV700 has got a 5-star rating from GNCAP.
