Mahindra will be opening the second phase of bookings for the XUV500 on the 25th of January, 2012. The bookings for the XUV will be opened for a limited period of just 10 days in 19 cities including Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Pune, Nasik, Jallandhar, Patiala, Kochi, Trivandrum, Calicut, Trissur, Coimbatore, Nagpur, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Chandigarh / Panchkula, Ludhiana, and Hyderabad. But what happens if the bookings exceed 7200 units? Well, in that case there will be a draw which will be done through Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India, details of which will soon be available on Mahindra’s website. Application for the draw will be available from Jan 25th to Feb 3rd and the buyer has to pay Rs. 80,000/- while submitting the XUV500 draw application form. Results from the draw will be announced on Feb 15th.
“It is a delight for us at Mahindra to re-open the bookings for the much acclaimed XUV500 and also extend the launch to 19 cities. To ensure that our customers do not have to wait beyond a reasonable period, we are undertaking an XUV500 draw, which will ensure fair and transparent allotment of the vehicle to our customers who get selected in the draw. We continue to be humbled by this overwhelming response to the XUV500 and would like to thank customers for the confidence they have shown in us,” Mr. Vivek Nayer, Senior VP, Marketing, Automotive Division, Mahindra, said.
