Mahindra has a winner in the XUV 500.  Bookings for the vehicle have now crossed the 8,000 mark and the vehicle has not even gone fully national yet.  It is also being said that Mahindra has instructed dealers to temporarily halt booking and have also instructed that they ask customers to re choose their colour preferences so as to rationalize production and implement speedy delivery. Some would perhaps say that Mahindra has trumped over Tata who are unable to sell the Aria (though very well equipped) in any decent numbers.
