It read, “This is the dawn of an era of Indian ascendancy in this sport; a sport that's always been loved & played throughout our country.

The other reply was for a Mahindra XUV700 booked for his wife, for which he is still awaiting delivery. He said, “By the way, I have ordered one for my wife and I am still in the queue. Sadly, the global supply chain disruptions are plaguing all car companies.”

Launched in September 2021, the Mahindra XUV700 hit the ground running racking up bookings at a rapid rate as the first set of 25,000 bookings were exhausted within the first hour of the order books opened on September 7 while the second lot of 25,000 units also picked up within hours of the order books re-opening the following month and the 1 lakh number being crossed within four months of launch and sending waiting periods soaring.
