Yes, This might be true as a poster on the walls of Mahindra’s Pune based plant reads “31 Days To Go”. This could mean that the brand could launch the new XUV500 successor by July 25th 2021. Although Mahindra has confirmed that the new XUV700 will be launch by the Q3 of 2021.

- Considering the competition in the market, Mahindra has also decided to level their game up. The upcoming XUV700 was spotted with a huge panoramic sunroof.
