Many early customers who receive the delivery of the car of the vehicles with a long waiting period choose to sell the car and make financial gains. In the past, we have seen this trend with many other cars and even the Mahindra Thar was sold at a premium price due to the high demand and less supply.

Now Mahindra is taking steps to counter the long waiting period by introducing new variants that will have fewer features and hence, will use a fewer number of semiconductors. The global shortage of semiconductors has triggered production cuts among many manufacturers including Maruti Suzuki.

Mahindra and Mahindra has already removed the wireless phone charging system from the XUV700. The top-end variant, which also offers features like ADAS comes with about 170 chips to control the systems. The delivery of the XUV700 commenced last month and Mahindra will start delivering the diesel variants soon. The brand plans to deliver as many as 14,000 units of the XUV700 by 14th January 2022.

Currently, the manufacturer has over 1.6 lakh pending orders and the production of 32,000 units were lost in September due to the chip shortage. Mahindra also started delivering the all-new Thar without the infotainment units.
