Hi All,

ORVM of the XUV500 revealed in the next sneak peek. It has an integrated Indicator and also what seems like a boarding lamp.

That's cool. I see a puddle lamp as well. Now since we are left with less than 24 hours for the launch, I seriously cant hide my excitement. I am anyway looking at the price - though I have no plans of an immediate buying. Hope they make good sense with the pricing as well.

Edit:: I hope we can expect "follow me home" head lamps as well.

The ORVM look small for the car of this perceived size. But looks well designed.
Now a Q, how will the puddle lamp work if its on the ORVM, as when the driver gets in or out of the car the door is opened hence the Lamp would light up the front tyre area instead of the floor area.
My 2cents is that it could be a parking light rather than a Boarding or Puddle light. I think i am right.

I guess puddle lamps serve the purpose of indicating the position of car or door. When you open the door, you always have the cabin lights which can light up the area where you are going to step out. Also there might be an option of a light on the bottom of the door [like Safari] to light up the area when you open a door.

Looks like everybody in here is waiting eagerly for the price info than the vehicle. Well, am waiting for that too.
As mentioned by swiftnfurious, am not a immediate buyer too. But if priced well enough, I might consider it as an upgrade. Everything as of now depends on the price.

What is the expected price for this beast to make it VFM? Can we get this in the Innova price range or will that be too optimistic?

Hormazd says below. Looks like they are bringng the FWD first & 4 WD later!

XUV500 biggest thing for M&M after Scorpio. Price range between Rs. 14-16 lakh is my guess. Front wheel drive only at launch. 4WD later

This is really Bad if it turns out to be true. M&M want to launch a basic version and then launch a 4X4 version. If they want to compete with Aria, fortuner or captiva, its a no brainer that it must have 4X4.

Reason is none other than the recent Firodias' offering at 11 lacs with a Daimler engine cum transmission. M&M wants to keep the asking price low.

Glad to see the puddle lamp on the ORVM. This car is surprising me more & more. Puddle lamps on ORVMs till now has been a feature present only in luxury cars.

Its not a parking light, but a puddle lamp. When you unlock the car with remote, this light will glow thus showing you the area near the driver's & front passenger's door.

Isn't this something that the current generation Tata Safari has, right from the base version?? Saw it on the website Tata Safari

That's actually on the door & does NOT activate till the door is open. The one on XUV 500 is on the OVRM & will activate mostly on vehicle lock / unlock.

May seem like a dumb question, but what use would the puddle lamp be with the door closed? Wouldn't activation on door open make more sense than activation on lock/unlock?
