    Mahindra has announced the name for their world SUV is XUV500, which Mahindra insists should be pronounced 'ex-you-vee-five-double-oh'. The 'X' is a nod to Generation X, to which the car is catering to.


    A few significant things about the XUV500: it is Mahindra's first global product. It is the first indigenously developed monocoque SUV, and it is the Mahindra group's first transverse-engined product (the Verito is a Renault design.) This suggests that the XUV will have much better ride and handling than Mahindra products we've seen so far, and the two-wheel-drive variants will have front wheel drive, which means much better fuel economy as well.


    Testing and validation of the XUV500 has been done across Europe, Australia and South Africa, 'among others', so we can expect the XUV to launch in those markets thanks to the strong Sssanyong dealer and service network. No date has been announced for the launch or unveiling, but watch this space for updates.


    The XUV500 is expected to be launched in the coming few weeks – in time for Diwali. The world SUV will sit above the Scorpio and will bridge the gap to the Ssangyong SUVs when their come to India.


    Dr. Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive & Farm Equipment Sectors, M&M Ltd. said “We are all set to create a new milestone with the launch of the Mahindra XUV500 which truly embodies and encapsulates the essence of the Mahindra Rise philosophy. Having extensively tested and validated our product with global and Indian customers alike, I am happy to add that we will simultaneously launch the XUV500 in South Africa under the same brand name. I am confident that the XUV500 will follow in the footsteps of its illustrious predecessors to evolve into an iconic brand.”


    Mr. Rajesh Jejurikar, Chief Executive, Automotive Division, M&M Ltd. said, “The Mahindra brand has evolved over time. Today it enjoys the strongest equity in the SUV category. Therefore, Mahindra will now be the lead brand for the XUV500. Additionally, with the XUV500 we are attempting to create a new category in the SUV segment, that will not only challenge the conventional but will also certainly translate into double customer delight.”

    Mahindra announced that the over powering consumer approval is the reason to introduce a basic model of the SUV. The Mahindra has created a stellar image in India since 2011; the car is priced between Rs 12 to 14.7 lakhs. The car has managed significant sales of 63 000 volumes in 20 months since its debut. The sale output last month was 2,200 volumes. Top officials have stated that the market is facing downslide, and the company has nevertheless strategized its sale output effectively.

    Mahindra XUV 500 is a high performance car gives the best performance on the all types of Indian roads. Comparing with Renault Duster 4x4, This car has so many add-ons. Exterior look is not so much sport as Renault Duster has. But price between Rs. 11.86 - 14.44 Lakhs are appreciable for this luxury SUV car. There are only 3 variants
    Mahindra XUV 500 W6 2WD, Mahindra XUV 500 W8 2WD and Mahindra XUV 500 W8 4WD available for Indian car buyers.

    hmm. I have gone through the pics. The SUV is quite impressive. But one thing is there that might lower its sales curve and that is the price. The car is given the price range at a higher level as compared to other competitor SUV's. The features available in XUV 500 is available in Tata Safari Strome in lower price rage. this is the only thing that might lower down its sales. But apart from that point, my experience says that this SUV is totally upto the mark.
