A Mahindra XUV700 crashed into a TamilNadu transport bus
CCTV footage of the Mahindra XUV700 crashing into a TamilNadu transport bus recently appeared on social media. Videos posted by MotoWagon shows a white XUV700 colliding head -on with a bus crossing the highway. The SUV was unable to slow down over time to avoid impact. However, despite the high speed the SUV performs, the car’s cabin largely remains undamaged and in part, thanks to its bonnet that absorbs most of the impact force. All passengers in the SUV are also safe, due to the car’s various safety features.

Responding to this tweet, Anand Mahindra, Chairman of Mahindra & Mahindra, also said that safety was the main design objective behind the design of all Mahindra vehicles, while also being thankful that all passengers were safe.
First, I am thankful that the passengers were not injured. Safety is a key design objective in all of our vehicles. This news item reinforces that philosophy. I thank our team for running the talk in their design & I hope this inspires them to improve further https://t.co/bkSXxJT4U4
