Mahindra XUV700 reaches 1.5 Lakh reservation milestone

The XUV700 has been a resounding success for Mahindra. The company recorded over 70,000 bookings for its new flagship SUV ahead of Diwali last year, and now Mahindra XUV700 has crossed the 1.5 lakh bookings mark in just over 11 months since its launch. Mahindra announced the milestone via his social media handles. As the company celebrates its success with the XUV700, it is said to still have over 1 lakh of pending reservations – thanks to the current global shortage of semiconductor chips caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Announcing the crossing of the 1.5 lakh bookings mark, the company said via a social media post, “A milestone that marks our excellence. Here is the crossing of the 1.5 lakh bookings. We are grateful to all of our customers for this overwhelming response.”
