Mahindra's much awaited XYLO was unveiled a couple of weeks back (we were at the Special launch, in case you didn't know) and until today we hadn't heard anything from Mahindra, though a few friends from Mumbai told me the XYLO sales was picking up rapid pace.
Minutes back, Mahindra has sent us an email saying 1,788 XYLOs were already sold in this time frame and 4,000 bookings have already been recorded across dealerships in the country. We learn that the XYLO's looks has not affected sales, with it's comfort, space, features and pricing masking its appearance.
Mahindra have gotten a strong start with the XYLO and the demand is somewhat unprecedented for the company. Mahindra plans to ramp up production, and the automatic transmission, petrol variants are going to come much before original plans.
