Mahindra will soon be launching the XUV500 in global markets.The XUV500 is available in the Indian market only but the company has plans to offer it in Europe and US within the next two years.

The Indian XUV500 is powered by a diesel manual but for global markets, Mahindra is developing a petrol automatic. These pics were snapped in Ooty, where the vehicle was doing cold weather testing. The mule has left-hand drive markings written on it.

    not interested, this thin looks ugly, will it experience the same fate of the pickup they were suppose to export to north america?

    It’s just the wrong vehicle for both US and European markets, I think. I think they’d better try it in less sophisticated developing market first, where consumers are less sophisticated and standards are lower.

    And will a Mahindra ever show its tail in the US? The last time they tried it was a big embarrasment. Can they really think they’ll succeed the second time? Investors will look at their botched first attempt and stayed far, far away.

    Ahem. Not really a looker, IMO.
