About :The Mahindra XUV 500 is a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) produced by the Indian automobile company Mahindra & Mahindra and was launched in September 2011 and by June 2012 the XUV 500 was available in 19 cities in India. Before it was launched, it was code named 'W201'.
The XUV500 was designed and developed at Mahindra's design and vehicle build center in Nashik and Chennai, and is manufactured in Mahindra's Chakan & Nashik plant , India. It is the first monocoque chassis based vehicle from the company. To meet the growing demand of its hot selling model XUV 500, M & M plans to increase the monthly production to 5000 units by Sept-Oct 2012. Despite being highly popular in India, it is less known in other countries as much as the Scorpio is. Mahindra’s XUV 500 secured first place in the 2012 Desert Storm Rally - one of India’s toughest tests for both man and machine. Apart from that, the XUV 500 also set three special stages ablaze by clocking the fastest time in each.
Eighteen months later, the XUV 500 was born a midst carefully-calibrated hype. That build-up and consequent anticipation has translated into 35,000 XUV 500's being sold in the first year and another 14,000 buyers on a waiting list.The XUV500 is powered by a 2.2 litre (2179 cc) "mHawk" turbo diesel engine similar to the one in the Mahindra Scorpio. It develops 140 bhp (104 kW; 142 PS) @ 3750 rpm and torque of 330 N·m (243 lb·ft) @1600-2800 rpm and is mated to a new 6-speed manual gearbox developed by Ricardo.
The XUV500 is launched in two versions sharing the same engine; the W6 in two-wheel drive only and the W8 which can be specified in two- or four-wheel drive. The W6 includes a 6-inch monochrome infotainment display, two airbags, ABS with electronic brake-force Distribution (EBD), disc brakes on all wheels. The W8 adds GPS navigation, six airbags, a touch screen, Electronic stability program (ESP) with rollover mitigation, Hill Hold and Hill Descent control, alloy wheels, and leather upholstery.
