Mahindra XUV 500 waiting period will bring down after production boost

The Cheetah inspired SUV Mahindra XUV 500 has recently received over 25000 booking applications and sensing this demand from the SUV buyers in India, Mahindra has decided to increase production of the SUV soon. Hopefully, production of the new Mahindra SUV will be increased by the next month thus ensuring speedy delivery and lesser waiting periods. Notably since its launch Mahindra XUV 500 has been in much demand following the world class SUV features and looks and Mahindra has been constantly struggling with higher demand and low production.

As per reports, Mahindra and Mahindra Automotive division Senior Vice-President (Marketing) Vivek Nayer has reportedly told that Mahindra will be taking the production of SUV XUV to 3,000 units per month and thus the customers waiting for the SUV will be getting the car sooner than expected. As per sources, the decision to increase production of XUV 500 is taken in the light of the overwhelming response from customers in the form of 25,000 plus booking during the second phase of booking that closed recently. Initially, the Mahindra XUV had received an order for 8,000 units just after its launch. Presently, the Mahindra’s latest SUV has a waiting time of more than five months and Mahindra will be burning the midnight oil to keep it under four months.

In addition to this, the increase in production will also enable Mahindra to have frequent booking phases opened and thus the SUV will have greater prospects of being taken well; as longer waiting periods often dissuade buyers from going for that car. The production boost activities and allied operations have already begun at the Nasik plant where the XUV is being built by Mahindra.

Meanwhile, Mahindra has also recently launched the new version of its best selling MUV which is the Mahindra Xylo which now features over 50 new observable changes than the outgoing version. As expected the higher variant which is the Mahindra Xylo E9 is now powered by mHawk engine which has imbibed in it the SUV capabilities.
