Mahindra to open second phase of bookings for XUV500 for 10 days

Leading SUV manufacturer Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd (M&M) on Tuesday announced it will open the second phase of bookings for XUV500 for a limited period of 10 days from January 25.

As a customer-centric measure, the company has decided to undertake a draw in the next round of bookings in case the requests for the latest Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) from the M&M stable exceed 7,200.

This will help in ensuring a reasonable waiting period for the customers selected in a fair and transparent manner, the company said.

The draw process will be validated by professional services firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India Pvt Ltd (DTTIPL) and details will be announced on the brand’s website, Vivek Nayer, Senior Vice President-Marketing, Automotive Division, M&M, said at a media conference at Hyderabad.

The bookings for the XUV500 had to be temporarily deferred just post-launch as four months’ production of over 8,000 units was sold out within just 10 days in five cities, Nayer said.
