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".

IMO,

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

Still no clarity about the launch date,some says it's sep.28 and for some it's end 2011.Testing seems to have ended and the latest spy pictures are of the production version.But the interior colors is not that great but quality seems to be ok.

I don't really care about the name ,its the overall fit and finish and the package that M&M must deliver at the price point of 15 lakhs . Also the hideous front bumper in the spy pics must be done away with .

Anand Mahindra just now announced the date' date='it's coming on the 28th itself .

I'm not much hopeful about the price though,most probably above Aria and much closer to Innova.[/quote']

I guess you meant above Innova and below Aria. Hope you remember Aria is much more expensive than Innova.

I think the base Aria is priced lower than the top end Innova .This will be much more costlier car for sure .
