Mahindra Xuv700 sets new record
The Mahindra XUV700 has created quite a stir in the market. The all-new vehicle sold out within a few hours of its launch. Mahindra has tested the XUV700 extensively in the past as well. Now, the all-new Mahindra XUV700 has reached the highest motorable road in India, Umling La, which is situated at an altitude of 19,300 feet above mean sea level.
As reported by Cartorq, pictures of Siddharth Vinayak Patankar on Twitter show two Mahindra XUV700s on a high mountain pass. What challenges the team had to face to drive the car to this place is not known. But how was their journey, let’s know. Loss of power is one of the common problems faced by vehicles on high hills. Also, diesel vehicles face the problem of cold start but BS6 generation vehicles do not come with such challenges.
However, reaching the pass is a big achievement for any vehicle. Umling La is located in Ladakh, the northernmost region of India. The elevation of the pass is 19,300 feet above sea level, which is peak and higher than any other road nearby. Interestingly, citizens are not allowed to visit this high pass as it is actually located near the disputed area. The all-new Mahindra XUV700 gets an AWD system but there is no proper 4X4 with a low-ratio transfer case. However, there are several terrain modes that help the vehicle overcome extreme challenges.
what’s special in the car
The vehicle also comes with ADAS or Advanced Driver Assistance System which offers features like automatic braking system, adaptive cruise control and even driver sleep alert. The XUV700 also gets over 60 connected features that will allow the owners to control the features of the vehicle from anywhere in the world.
The XUV700 will be the first car in India to get integrated Alexa, which means that almost all the features in the vehicle can be controlled through voice. Multiple zone climate control system, panoramic sunroof and many other features are also available in it. The owners will be able to control the cabin temperature wirelessly to achieve the correct cabin temperature upon entry into the vehicle.
The all-new Mahindra XUV700 2.2-litre mHawk diesel and 2.0-litre mStallion petrol engines have been given. It is fast and reaches 0-60 in just 5 seconds. Mahindra offers three driving modes with the all-new XUV700 that will change the behavior of the engine. Mahindra has not revealed the official power and torque figures of the all-new XUV700.
The petrol engine generates maximum power of 200 PS and peak torque of 380 Nm. While the diesel mHawk generates maximum torque of 155ps and 360Nm. Mahindra is yet to reveal the transmission option.
