About the launch of the Mahindra XUV500, the media speculated the launch being at the end of December 2011. But I came across the ICB sites which stated the launch of the SUV on September 28. Bookings will hence open since then and delivery of the vehicles to the customers will commence on October 7 or 8.

Haven't you recognised a fact here.

M&M wanted to continue it's tradition of naming it's products ending with an 'O'.

Hence it has called it as X-U-V 5 Double 'O' instead of calling it 'XUV Five Hundred'.

That's funny , so if we spell the entire word it will become  Xuvfiveoo . smiley36.gif

We all know quite well what it mean by SUV , MUV , UV etc...  I wonder what it mean by XUV ?  

I feel M&M is being symbolic and trying to say with X before UV that this is not UV from M&M.

i'm sure we'll eventually hold on to just 500 and pronounce it as "five hundred".


X for Generation X

UV  for Utility Vehicles

5 for this being the fifth car in their line-up (other four being Bolero, Scorpio, Xylo & Verito)

00 for style and to signify that this is the first car of the new series. Hence subsequently we can expect cars named 501, 502, etc.

Personally I feel they might like to call it the Mahindra 5 Series.. Lol
