Mahindra XUV700 Deliveries To Begin After Diwali – Dealer

The deliveries of the Mahindra XUV700 might not begin before Diwali. The launch has already happened and the prices of all the variants are out. The XUV700 is the most anticipated SUV of the year and it comes to challenge the likes of 5-seat SUVs like Creta and Seltos, as well as 7-seat SUVs like Safari, Hector Plus and Alcazar. That is a broad spectrum it aims to cover. The initial looks are promising whether in terms of specs, engines or the latest modern tech and features. The bookings for the SUV will open from October 7 onwards. Here is the reason why we might see a physical model on the roads until Diwali.

Mahindra XUV700 Deliveries – After Diwali?

Mahindra had to struggle with the shortage of semiconductors in a big way. It was a common problem for almost all the carmakers. It is still not completely resolved. The XUV700 got affected by it a lot and the launch was pushed back significantly. Now, the prices are out and the bookings have commenced. But the people who went for the test drive have brought in new information. According to them, the car is fun to drive and agile for handling but the features are not completely available or functioning as yet. This information was shared on Facebook where the potential owner claimed that the Drives Modes, Valet Mode, Apple CarPlay, etc are not functional yet. Talking to the Zonal Supervisor, the deliveries might not commence until Diwali. Also, the petrol versions will be available first. The diesel will likely take another 1 month after that. Hence, we might see the XUV700 on our roads only after Diwali.
