Commenting on this recognition, Velusamy R, Chief of Global Product Development, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “When we were developing the XUV700, we were confident that the XUV700 will achieve 5-star safety rating based on the internal tests done on the vehicle. With XUV700, Mahindra is redefining the SUV segment not just in performance and features but also in terms of safety. Our mission is to bring safer vehicles on Indian roads and to that end, we are building cars with maximum structural integrity loaded with tech-enabled features for maximum safety, performance and efficiency. In addition to the rating, it is heartening to be recognized by Global NCAP for being the first Indian made and owned brand to offer Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) as a safety option, part of ADAS.”
Alejandro Furas, Secretary General of Global NCAP said, “Mahindra has achieved a major milestone with this top score for adult protection and by becoming the first Indian made and owned brand to offer Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) as a safety option. Making this life saving technology available is an important step in encouraging the widespread fitment of crash avoidance technologies. Mahindra is one of the leading manufacturers in India, committed to improving their vehicles in response to Global NCAP’s call to democratise vehicle safety.”
