Mahindra gets 21,000-plus bookings for KUV100 in India

Mahindra's entry-level SUV, the KUV 100, has received more than 21,000 bookings. Launched a month ago, the KUV100 has been well received, said an official statement.  Presently, there is a waiting period of two months for the compact SUV.

The Mahindra KUV100 comes in seven variants and is the smallest SUV in the company's product portfolio. Two new engines made a debut in the Mahindra KUV100. The petrol is an 82PS dual variable valve timing all aluminium motor while the diesel too is a 1.2-litre turbo unit which makes 77PS/190Nm. Both the engines are 3-cylinder units mated to 5-speed manual transmissions.

"We are delighted with the number of KUV100 bookings received within just a month of its launch and would like to thank our customers," said Ravin Shah, president and chief executive (automotive), Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. "The large number of enquiries and 21,000 plus bookings, reaffirm the immense popularity the KUV100 has garnered in such short time. What is also very encouraging is that almost half of our bookings are for the KUV100 petrol variant. Further, we are putting our efforts to serve the customers faster by increasing the capacity, as was shared during the launch."
