Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.

1.5 lakh units sold in about four years.

Mahindra has announced that cumulative sales of the Mahindra XUV500 has crossed the 1.5 lakh mark which includes exports. The 7-seat crossover was launched four years ago, in September 2011, and days after the launch, unprecedented demand forced Mahindra to stop bookings.

The company’s first monocoque SUV was designed in-house at the company’s research and development facility in Chennai, Mahindra Research Valley (MRV). It was sold for about three and a half years without changes to the body, until the current (facelift) version was launched in May 2015 in 6 variants: W4, W6, W8, W8 AWD, W10 and W10 AWD.

The Mahindra XUV500 competes with the Tata Aria, Tata Safari Storme, and top-end variants of Hyundai Creta, Maruti S-Cross, Renault Duster and Nissan Terrano.
