Being the new benchmark of the company, the Xcent has good booking across the nation and Tamil Nadu was not lagging behind with the bookings already crossing 500 mark, HMIL Regional Manager (TN) V Ramachandran said on the sidelines of the launch of the vehicle.
With "good response" for the vehicle, the waiting period for the delivery would be about two months and as such the company had not fixed any sales target, he said.
The car would compete in the segment served by the Honda Amaze and Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, among others, Ramachandran said. He refused to comment on the recall of Dzire and its positive impact on Xcent.
It is being offered here at an introductory ex-showroom price of Rs 4.67 lakh for the petrol and Rs 5.53 lakh for the diesel variant respectively, going up to Rs 7.51 lakh for the top end diesel variant.
