Indian automaker Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd has revealed that it will be conducting proactive inspections on a total of 1.1 lakh units of its XUV700 and XUV400 SUV models. The company made this announcement through an exchange filing, stating that the inspections are necessary due to the potential risk of abrasion cut of wiring loom in the engine bay. The inspection and subsequent rectification will be performed free of charge for all affected customers.
The recall affects 1,08,306 units of the Mahindra XUV700 SUV manufactured between June 8, 2021, and June 28, 2023. Additionally, 3,560 units of the XUV400 electric SUV manufactured from February 16, 2023, to June 5, 2023, are also included in the recall. The affected vehicles will be inspected for ineffective spring return action of the brake potentiometer.
Mahindra has assured that owners of the affected vehicles will be directly contacted by the company. The proactive approach taken by Mahindra in conducting these inspections showcases their commitment to ensuring customer satisfaction and safety.
Recently, Mahindra held its Futurescape event in Cape Town, South Africa, where it showcased several new vehicles, including the highly-anticipated fully-electric Thar.e, the Scorpio-N based Global Pik Up (pickup truck), and its upcoming range of electric SUVs under the “BE (Born Electric)” branding. During the event, Mahindra also unveiled a brand-new logo, which will be used for their electric SUV lineup.
The XUV700 is Mahindra’s flagship SUV offering, catering to the premium segment with prices ranging from Rs 14.01 lakh to Rs 26.18 lakh (ex-showroom). On the other hand, the XUV400 is currently the brand’s sole electric SUV available in the Indian market.
This proactive inspection and recall demonstrates Mahindra’s dedication to addressing potential issues and ensuring the safety of their customers. Mahindra continues to strive towards delivering high-quality vehicles and maintaining a strong reputation in the automotive industry.
