As of 2021, Mahindra’s XUV700 mid-sized SUV was available in India. The new Mahindra XUV700 has gotten a resounding thumbs up from the automotive community. More than 1.5 million people have expressed interest in the new model. Nearly a million customers have yet to receive their new vehicles. As of this writing, there is a two-year waiting list for the SUV.
Supply chain issues and a lack of semiconductor chips are putting Mahindra at a disadvantage. The XUV700’s feature set has also undergone some revisions thanks to the domestic automaker. Several features have been removed from the entry-level MX to the top-spec AX7 L by Mahindra.
