The Mahindra XUV700 is one of the biggest SUV launches of this year in India and it has had a lot of people wanting to experience it and book it as well. Up until now, there was no official word as to when this process will begin but now, Mahindra has given a clear timeline for the XUV700 going forward. Additionally, Mahindra has also announced the complete variant-wise pricing for the XUV700.
Let’s start with the booking and test drives process. Test drives of the XUV700 will begin in a phased manner with phase 1 cities starting test drives from October 2. This includes Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Pune, Indore, Lucknow, Coimbatore and Vadodara. Then, cities in phase 2 will start their test drives from October 7 and this list includes Jaipur, Surat, Patna, Cochin, Cuttack, Kanpur, Calicut and Nashik.
The company will add more cities subsequently to initiate test drives for the rest of the country starting from 10th October. Mahindra says that the car will be available for previews at Mahindra dealerships starting October 1 itself, across the country.
The bookings for the Mahindra XUV700 will begin on October 7 across India. Do note that the prices which have been announced today are only applicable for the first 25,000 bookings of the car, post which Mahindra will increase the prices of the car. Also, given the long list of variants, series and customisation options, Mahindra has launched an ‘add to cart’ feature on their website which should make the process of finalising the correct configuration a tad bit easier. Deliveries of the Petrol variants will precede deliveries of the Diesel variants. Mahindra has said that an official announcement regarding the date for the start of deliveries will be made by 10th October.
Now, the complete price list of the Mahindra XUV700 is out too, and as Mahindra had said, the XUV500 will come in two series – MX series and AX series.
The Mahindra XUV700 MX series, which only comes in a 5-seater configuration and manual transmission option, is priced at Rs 11.99 lakh for the petrol variant and Rs 12.49 lakh for the diesel variant.
