Mahindra is ready to increase its lineup of electric cars with what are likely to be new electric SUVs by the brand later this year. The automotive major has announced that it will unveil the electric vehicles on the Indian Independence day, that is August 15, 2022. With that, the EVs would mark the first production ready versions of the company’s Born Electric concepts.
To recall, Mahindra had showcased its Born Electric Vision platform for its future electric cars back in February this year. The short teaser of the concept mentioned a reimagined form of EVs, worked upon by the folks at Mahindra Advanced Design Studio in the United Kingdom. In line with the same, the new unveiling will be held at the Oxfordshire, UK.
As a recent report by Autocar points out from what has been revealed of Mahindra’s Born Electric Vision so far, we are likely to see three new electric SUV concepts by the brand. One or all of these may be showcased on August 15 this year. The unveiling will follow Mahindra’s practice of taking cover off its new cars around the Independence day, as we have seen in the last couple of years with the 2020 Thar and the XUV700.
Autocar also mentions that the new EV concepts may be put on showcase during the Auto Expo 2022. The showcase will follow the global unveil on August 15, however, the actual launch date for electric cars around these concepts may not take place till 2025. The only EV from the brand that is set for a launch as of now is the XUV400 EV, expected to mark its debut early next year.
Mahindra’s new EV concepts
As for the vehicles under its Born Electric Vision, we expect to see a total of three new concepts for a compact SUV, a midsize SUV and an SUV coupe. Since these are being worked upon from scratch, these cars will not be an electric spin-off of a present petrol or diesel vehicle. So, we know that the vehicles will be three entirely new offerings under the Mahindra portfolio.
Till now, we have only had some teasers of the concept. The one in February displayed the three EVs standing side-by-side and hinted at the signature C-shaped LEDs on the front grilles of all. Along with that, the teaser video gave us a glimpse of the rooflines of all the three vehicles, thus dropping a hint on what the form factor of the EVs would be.
A following teaser by Mahindra in March then showcased the interior of these concept vehicles. In that, we can see rather simple and minimalist theme within the models. The only components to be seen are a hexagonal-shaped flat bottom steering wheel, a large infotainment system by its side, a gear lever and an illuminated cabin.
We will have to wait for more specifics on the Mahindra electric cars for now. Since the company will first unveil the concepts for the same, expect to see some changes in them too, by the time they make their way to a production ready version in the upcoming years.
