The XUV 500 from Mahindra has received an overwhelming response from Indian customers who are flocking to the Mahindra dealerships to book the vehicle; and this without the vehicle having been launched all over India.  Mahindra apparently has decided to prioritize the domestic market over the overseas one and has therefore decided to first meet local demand before expanding to overseas markets.  Mahindra’s XUV 500 is its first global SUV and Mahindra’s first ever monocoque construction with a front wheel drive architecture for the 4×2 version.
