High Demand: Mahindra XUV crossed 26000 bookings.
Mahindra XUV300 is currently offering 6-speed manual transmission, equipped with a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol that continues to gain traction and now accounts for a substantial share of XUV300 sales leading to over 26000 units from its launch date.
In a recent interview, Mahindra and Mahindra announced that the XUV300 has crossed the 26,000 bookings mark since its launch in February this year. In fact, the XUV300 also became the second-highest selling subcompact SUV in India. Among its 3 variants, the top end variant has seen the maximum demand and accounts for 70 per cent of the overall bookings. The petrol variant, equipped with a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol continues to gain traction and now accounts for a substantial share of XUV300 sales and we were the first to drive the petrol powered XUV300.
The Mahindra XUV300 is on sale for both petrol and diesel variant. Mahindra’s XUV300 is built on sangYong's X100 platform which also spawns the SsangYong Tivoli which in-turn means that the XUV300 inherits some of the characters of the Tivoli. Although they both are not same models as Mahindra and Mahindra Group has made some changes to other underpinnings of the XUV300.
Veejay Nakra, Chief of Sales & Marketing, Automotive Division, Mahindra said, "We are thrilled with the XUV300 receiving over 26,000 bookings in just over two months since its launch. Consumers are finding the XUV300 to be an exciting and comprehensive package that offers thrilling performance, first-in-segment safety features and head-turning design, which is reflected in these impressive booking numbers. It is also encouraging to see that a substantial number of bookings are for the petrol variant. As a customer centric organization, we are constantly working to keep the waiting period at a minimum and to get our customers their XUV300s as soon as possible. I am sure that the XUV300 brand will grow from strength to strength in the years to come."
