Mahindra may have been late in making a move in the EV passengers’ car space but is all geared up to make up for the delay. The Indian automakers have a series of EV launches planned for the next four years. The XUV400, an electric vehicle (EV) variant of the XUV300, will be the first one to hit the market. It’s scheduled to go on sale in early 2023.
After the XUV400, which will employ the XUV300’s ICE platform, all upcoming Mahindra electric SUVs will use a custom EV skateboard platform, which is being seen as the automaker’s effort to accelerate the development of its upcoming products. Here’s a list of EVs, that Mahindra is likely to bring to the Indian market in near future.
A brand-new midsize coupe in the Sub-4 meter segment is also reported to be in Mahindra’s EV plans. Codenamed M110, the EV offering from Mahindra is likely to be placed in directed completion with Tata’s Curvv SUV which is set to hit the market in 2024.
Mahindra M210 – midsize SUV
The M210, which will essentially be a bigger version of the M110, is anticipated to be a midsize SUV in the style of the Hyundai Creta. While the battery pack and power abilities are likely to be similar to the M110, the M210 is likely to have more room on the inside. With a starting price of Rs 25 lakhs, expect it to hit stores in April 2025.
Mahindra XUV800 (W610)
An EV variant of Mahindra’s flagship XUV 700 SUV, the XUV 800 will sharethe same fundamental design, profile, and three rows of seating. With one or two permanent-magnet brushless motors (for 2WD and 4WD), the EV is likely to come with power outputs ranging from 150hp to 310hp. The battery capacity might of this EV offering, could be as high as 80kWh. This seven-seat electric SUV is expected to cost between Rs 30 lakh and Rs 35 lakh and has a launch date of June 2024.
Mahindra XUV900 EV (M310)
The coupe EV version of the XUV700 will conceptually be similar but with a new design language. The biggest difference would be a sloping roof and a revamped backed design to go in sync with the updated design. The cost of this premier SUV is likely to break the Rs 30 lakh price bracket.
Mahindra compact SUV/Coupe SUV
Mahindra’s sixth born-electric vehicle will likely be a step down from the M210 and may have a coupe style. While the RFQs (request for quotes) sent by vendors have been approved, very little is known about the upcoming Mahindra.
