Anand Maindra keeps his word – Special XUV700 getting ready for Paralympian Deepa Malik | പാരാലിമ്പ്യന്‍ ദീപാ മാലിക്കിനായി പ്രത്യേകം XUV700 ഒരുങ്ങുന്നു… വാക്കുപാലിച്ച്‌ ആനന്ദ് മഹീന്ദ്ര…

Deepa Malik XUV700

A few months ago, Paralympian Deepa Malik posted a tweet saying that she loves driving big SUVs but getting in and out is a challenge for her because she has to use a special seat. She tagged Mahindra, MG Motor and Tata Motors and said that she would buy their SUV if it will come with a special seat. Anand Mahindra replied to Deepa’s tweet and agreed to build an XUV700 with a special seat.

Now, Deepa has shared the pictures of her new special XUV700 that is currently being developed.

The SUV is being developed at Mahindra Research Valley and Deepa Malik visited the facility to see the ongoing work. In the picture, we can see an XUV700 with a special seat. The seat is developed by TrueAssis Tech who are already installing such seats in other Mahindra’s vehicles. Deepa Malik is also the voice behind MG Astor’s personal AI assistant.

Wheelchair-accessible vehicles are a rarity in India, despite more than 2 percent Indians living with disabilities. Most wheelchair-accessible cars are modified with an internal platform, extendable rails and a raised roof, and no such vehicles are available from the factory. We hope this accessible Mahindra XUV700 guides a change in the industry, and that more affordable mobility options become available for Indians with disabilities.
