Good news for car enthusiasts in India is coming straight from the horse’s mouth. The Indian car manufacturing prodigy, Mahindra and Mahindra has rolled out its first international edition of Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV).
The latest launch, dubbed XUV500, was launched at a sparkling ceremony in Pune, which is reportedly home to the company’s latest sensation.
As per company officials, two editions (W8 and W6) of the SUV will be offered in both four-wheel and two-wheel drive.
According to latest information, the Mahindra W8 has been pegged around Rs 11.95 lakh, ex-showroom price in Delhi. On the other hand, the Mahindra W6 will cost Rs 10.8 lakh, ex-showroom price in Delhi.
However, the said prices are applicable only for the two-wheel drive version of Mahindra W8/W6.
The XUV500 is accessible in both four-wheel (4×4) and two-wheel (4×2) drive edition, with an ultra-advance gearbox and 6-speed manual.
The powerful wagon is fueled by 2.2-litre, “Common-Rail Diesel Engine” (CDE) and the chunk is similar to the one available on Mahindra’s benchmark ‘Scorpio mHawk’.
In addition, the company claims efficient fuel efficiency, certified by ARAI, of 15.1 km/l, which will certainly mark the second best fuel-efficient product developed under Mahindra’s glittering passenger SUV inventory, just next to ‘Mahindra Bolero’.
