Buoyed by high demand, Mahindra has said it has taken initiative to keep the waiting period for the XUV 3XO to as low as possible. The carmaker has already manufactured more than 10,000 units of the SUV ahead of the deliveries. It has also increased the XUV 3XO’s production capacity to 9,000 units per month, which is expected to keep the waiting period for the SUV low. Rajesh Jejurikar, Executive Director and CEO at Mahindra, said the carmaker understands that the SUV will attract a lot of first-time car buyers who may not be willing to wait for extended periods.
