The Mahindra XUV700 has garnered attention since its release in 2021, not only for the features it delivers but also for the lengthening wait times. The wait time for some variations of Mahindra’s flagship SUV peaked a few months ago at 19 months. A brief check with the dealers reveals that waiting times for the XUV700 have started to decrease, nevertheless.
Customers who are now ordering the petrol-powered XUV700 MX, AX3, or AX5 variations can anticipate receiving their car in two to three months, but the diesel versions of the same trims have a far longer waiting period of about ten months at most places.
The most popular AX7 and AX7 L trims are the top-spec petrol and diesel versions, which are fully laden with bells and whistles. According to dealer sources, the AX7 now has a waiting period of roughly 15 months, while the AX7 L has a slightly longer waiting period of 16 months.
While there are still large waiting times for the best variations of XUV700, they are now three months shorter than they were in July of this year.
Additionally, there has been a little reduction in the MX range’s delivery time. Mahindra dealers claim that the company is shipping about 6,000 units each month, which is a significant increase over what was sent last year.
In India, the XUV700 competes with vehicles like the Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus, and Hyundai Alcazar. One of its brothers, the recently released Mahindra Scorpio N, is also a rival to it.
