Neilguy, a member of the forums on has posted that Pawan Goenka has revealed that the w201 SUV is going to be called the Mahindra XUV 500 (the post says that it was not pronounced five hundred but five -oh-oh).  If indeed this news is true one would say that is a bit strange.  XUV could stand for Xover Utility Vehicle.  But the 500?  We shall wait and see.  The vehicle is likely to be launched before the end of this year as per Neilguy’s post.
