The XUV300 has already been launched in an ICE version, and the electric version will compete with Tata Motors and MG.
India's new Mahindra electric XUV300 will be built on the Mahindra Electric Scalable and Modular Architecture (MESMA).
This is the same platform for building all future Mahindra electric vehicles. In fact, it is the first vehicle from the Mahindra electric range to be built on MESMA.
In an attempt to compete with the Tata Nexon EV, Mahindra is now double-doing its efforts in the electric vehicle space. Nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) battery will be used in the XUV300 Electric.
The battery pack will deliver a decent range. Electric XUV300 is expected to be a high-performance version of this powertrain and could have two battery packs to ensure adequate range.
It will support various motor power ratings ranging from 60 to 280 KW. The battery will have an 80 kWh capacity.
It will have a five-seater capacity and will offer a range between 350-400km. This is comparable to the range of the Tata Nexon EV.
Its design will be more sporty and will feature a large touchscreen. The EV will also have a sunroof, and connectivity features.
The electric model may also come with blue accents. Other features include a rearview camera, USB ports, and a Bluetooth system. While the exterior will be simple, but luxurious.
Mahindra is developing a 'Born EV' platform to produce these vehicles. These models are expected to be compact, midsize, and large coupe-style SUVs.
A 130 bhp electric motor will power the eXUV300. It draws power from a 40-kWh battery pack. LG Chem battery cells will be used in the electric XUV300.
It will be available in both electric and gasoline models and it is expected to cost between Rs 15 lakh and Rs 20 lakh ex-showroom Delhi.
The company has not revealed the exact date. The all-electric version of the Mahindra XUV300 SUV is expected to launch in India sometime in 2023.
