“With sales of 26,632 SUVs in May, we continued the growth momentum with good performance across all our brands including XUV700 and Thar. We are seeing strong bookings and have a strong pipeline.

In the commercial vehicles segment, the domestic automaker managed to sell 21,149 vehicles in May 2022. We are closely monitoring supply chain-related issues, which are limiting volumes and are taking appropriate measures to mitigate the impact,” Nakra added.

Meanwhile, Mahindra had earlier informed that its XUV700 has turned out to be a resounding success since its launch. The introduction of the new model is a big shot for Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) as it is getting bookings of over 9,000-10,000 units every month. Despite producing 5000 vehicles per month, the SUV has reached a waiting period of 18-24 months.
