Reasons and Solutions
The long waiting period for the XUV 700 is mainly due to the high demand and limited supply of the SUV. The XUV 700 has received over 80,000 bookings since its launch, making it one of the most successful SUVs in India. However, Mahindra has been facing challenges in ramping up its production capacity due to various factors such as semiconductor shortage, COVID-19 restrictions, and supply chain disruptions.
Mahindra has been taking steps to increase its production and reduce the waiting period for its customers. The company has recently announced that it will start producing the XUV 700 at its second plant in Chakan, Maharashtra, from July onwards. This will help increase the monthly production capacity from 4,000 units to 10,000 units by September.

The company has launched a dedicated portal called XUV Connect, where customers can track their booking status, delivery date, and other details online. Customers can also contact their nearest Mahindra dealerships or customer care helpline for any queries or assistance.
If you are planning to buy an XUV 700, you may have to wait for a few months before you can get your hands on your dream SUV. However, you can rest assured that Mahindra is doing its best to deliver your XUV 700 as soon as possible.
