Mahindra XUV 500 heads to Europe, launch in Spain by 2013

India’s pioneer SUV company Mahindra cherished its recently launched Mahindra XUV 500 overwhelming customer response, a seven-seater SUV in India by October 2011. It was an instant hit in the Indian auto industry as it had everything an Indian car buyer was looking for; time tested Mercedes engineered 2.2L mHawk engine, generating 140 bhp decent power with instant response and 243 lb-ft torque. It offers rugged-mean looks with curved cheetah lines, good legroom-headroom with large seven seats, low NVH Cabin, Leather interiors and aggressive pricing to shake existing international premium SUV players in India. Mahindra XUV500 bookings had to be withdrawn as the manufacturer could not take any more any new orders due to production constraints to meet out the overwhelming increasing demands.

In India, the XUV 500 has bagged applauses and customer inclination following the Mercedes engine under the hood and the Lotus engineering shaped premium suspension system.

However, even after much fanfare and hullabaloo, the XUV500 has presented a decent number on the sales chart. Following the showering bookings, Mahindra had to temporarily close the booking and is expected to reopen it in this month. This time as well, Mahindra hopes to have the same tremendous response and why not when the SUV is presenting world off roader features at affordable Indian price.
