Leading SUV maker Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd (M&M) said it will open the second phase of bookings for XUV500 for 10 days from 25 January 2012.
The company has decided to undertake a draw in the next round of bookings in case the requests for the latest Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) from the M&M stable exceed 7,200.
This will help in ensuring a reasonable waiting period for the customers selected in a fair and transparent manner, the company said.
The draw process will be validated by professional services firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India Pvt Ltd (DTTIPL) and details will be announced on the brand's website, Vivek Nayer, senior vice president-marketing, automotive division, M&M, said at a conference.
The bookings for the XUV500 had to be temporarily deferred just post-launch as four months' production of over 8,000 units was sold out within just 10 days in five cities, Mr Nayer said.
Meanwhile, speaking in Ahmedabad, another M&M executive said delivery of XUV500 is expected to commence from mid-February 2012.
"We shall close bookings for XUV500 on 3 February 2012. Thereafter, we shall have a draw process. Our endeavour is to announce the winners before 15 February 2012, and deliveries shall commence very soon after that," M&M Vice-President (Sales) Vijay Nakra said.
