Mahindra XUV700 has been one of the most anticipated cars to launch so far this year and it’s all thanks to a new special variant. Mahindra has reportedly been working on a new Mahindra XUV700 Javelin edition of their XUV700, inspired by gold medal winner Neeraj Chopra who performed spectacularly at the Tokyo Olympics 2020.
The XUV 700 SUV has recently undergone a makeover, receiving a golden makeover to celebrate the Indian athlete Neeraj Chopra , who won gold in the Javelin throw. The leaked photos also show how the Twin Peaks chrome emblem is now present at either side of the grille and how the dashboard has received an ochre paint job that carries over to its leather seats too – both of which feature a gorgeous Javelin throw logo.
The company had trademarked ‘Mahindra Javelin’ and ‘Javelin by Mahindra’ names in August 2021, kicking off speculation about a special edition. Just in time for the special launch, leaked pictures of the new car have surfaced online.
Mahindra XUV700 Javelin Edition details
To distinguish the Mahindra XUV700 Javelin Edition from others on the road, there is a new gold-painted front grille with multiple vertical slats. “Twin Peak” logos are mounted in the center of it while a custom Midnight Blue exterior paint scheme on its ORVMs, door handles and rear badging matches its front grille trim.
The Mahindra XUV700 Javelin Edition is dressed in soft touch material on the dashboard with a Javelin emblem, gold treatment on its interior door panels and on its leather seats. The Javelin Edition comes with exclusive gold badging to stand out on the road, even more than the standard model. It includes all of the features of the regular XUV700.
Nerraj Chopra’s Mahindra XUV700 Javelin Edition will have an 87.58 imprint on the inside as well as on the outside. On the inside, you’ll see it on the dashboard. On the outside, it’s on the rear of the car. Similarly if you look at Sumit Antil’s XUV700 Gold edition you will find him holding his 68.55 Javelin throw in meters with pride!
The feature list for Mahindra XUV700 Javelin Edition goes on to include, 6-way power seats, leather upholstery, ADAS, and a host of safety equipment. Surround View 360°, Blind View Monitoring, Electronic Park Brake (EPB), 6 airbags and Wireless Charging are some features the SUV offers. It remains unclear if this is a top-end variant like the golden XUV700 ‘Javelin Edition’ though it could be petrol or diesel.
It is not clear which technical specifications of the Mahindra XUV700 Javelin Edition will be given, but the regular XUV700 is available with both petrol and diesel power trains. Both engines are offered with manual or automatic transmissions, and it’s believed that this special variant could come with AWD too.
The homegrown manufacturer announced the full price list of the XUV700 only a few days ago and it has been aggressively priced against a range of midsize SUVs. Priced from ₹ 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the entry-level 2WD 5-seater MX petrol manual transmission (MT).
Mahindra is offering the XUV700 to customers in stages. The carmaker’s representatives have started previewing the XUV700 at their dealerships in a phased manner, ahead of its commercial launch. Moreover, to attract more interest in this new SUV, Mahindra plans to launch the SUV in a special ‘Javelin Edition’ in the near future.
When it comes to the regular Mahindra XUV700, bookings for this SUV opened at the end of last week. Mahindra registered over 50,000 bookings in just three hours; these figures are an encouraging start for this model. Buyers who put down a deposit on this car may be looking at waiting periods of up to 1 year – supply is constrained with demand exceeding expectations.
