Mahindra rolls out XUV700 in Nepali market

After a long wait, Mahindra’s flagship global SUV – the XUV700 has been launched in Nepal. Mahindra & Mahindra, India’s leading SUV manufacturer, launched the XUV700 in India last year, but the SUV’s Nepal launch was delayed due to the import restrictions enforced by the Nepal government.

Agni Incorporated Pvt. Ltd., the authorized distributor of Mahindra vehicles in Nepal launched the XUV700 on Monday amid a function held in Kathmandu. Outside of India, Nepal is the second market after South Africa where the XUV700 is being launched.

In Nepal, the XUV700 is available with the gasoline engine, manual and automatic options in five and seven-seater capacities.

The Mahindra XUV700 has been launched at an attractive price starting at Rs 7.4 million. The introductory price is applicable for one month from the launch with early delivery in February 2023.

“The XUV700 sets a new benchmark in the premium SUV segment of Nepal. Premium features on board the SUV include a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system and cluster, a six-way powered driver seat, and class-leading music system with 12 Sony speakers,” states the press statement issued by Agni Incorporated. According to the company, the latest Mahindra SUV comes up with a panoramic sunroof and dual-zone climate control.

Mahindra has also achieved a major milestone with the 5-star safety rating by GNCAP for adult protection and the SUV also became the first made-in-India and owned brand to offer Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) as a safety option.

Agni Incorporated has introduced three variants of the XUV700—AX3, AX5, and AX7—currently for the Nepali market.

The SUV has a 2.0mStallion Turbo-petrol engine that delivers 147 kW power and 380 Nm of torque. It is coupled with a smooth-shifting 6-speed manual & automatic transmission system, offering an effortless and thrilling drive experience.

The XUV700 offers best-in-class performance through multi-link suspension with a stabilizer bar and FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) technology.

The XUV700 is also powered with a first-in-segment feature—‘Smart door handles’, prominent wheel haunches above the wheel arches, and LED Clear-view Headlamps.

The company said that safety is one of the core pillars of the XUV700 as it comes up with 7 airbags. The SUV offers comprehensive Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) in the AX7 variant. This includes Smart Pilot Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Lane Keep Assist, and Event Traffic Sign Recognition as standard. The automatic headlamps with High Beam Assist dynamically adjust the illumination of dark areas on the road, without blinding oncoming traffic. Safety is further taken care of by tire pressure monitoring systems, an additional reverse camera, an intelligent driver drowsiness detection system, and Stop and Go driving function as part of its adaptive cruise control.

According to Agni Incorporated, the XUV700 will be offered from the Twin Peaks branded SUV showroom, which has been curated to provide Nepalese customers with a premium experience. Initially, the XUV700 will be offered from two Twin Peak-branded showrooms in Kathmandu. The Twin Peaks network will be expanded to five showrooms across Nepal by March 23. The new showroom has been designed to elevate the customer experience and bring in a new customer base for Mahindra.
