According to sources Mahindra is all set to launch its new flagship SUV in the Indian market. The new SUV is yet to get officially named and is currently known by its model code, Y400. According to our sources, the Mahindra Y400 SUV will see a market launch on October 9, 2018. The new Mahindra Y400 SUV will sit above the XUV500 in the company's India line-up and will replace the first-gen SsangYong Rexton.
The Mahindra Y400 SUV made its public debut in India at the Auto Expo 2018 earlier this year and was recently showcased to the public in Mumbai at a company event. Based on the second-gen SsangYong Rexton, the Mahindra Y400 SUV gets a unique grille design which is more in-line with other Mahindra models.
Compared to the outgoing model, the new Y400 SUV gets an updated feature
list. While the model shown at the Auto Expo was equipped with projector
headlamps, a 9.2-inch HD touch screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a
360-degree camera, a 7.0-inch LCD instrument cluster, cooled seats, Nappa
leather upholstery and a smart tailgate, recent sightings of
close-to-production mules have confirmed that most of the equipment above is
likely to make it in the India-spec SUV.
Automobile sales in India counted as factory dispatches and not retail sales Mumbai sources reported that Passenger vehicle (PV) sales in India continued their downward spiral in June as automakers curbed factory dispatches to control inventory at dealerships. Initial reports from the top companies suggest a year on year (y-o-y) decline of more than 16% for the PV segment and 11% y-o-y drop in two-wheeler sales.
