“When we bring out this product (XUV300) in the electric vehicle space, it’s going to create a lot of excitement. It will have 380 volts, 200 km range and there will be an option to increase the range up to 350-400 km and this is what will create the excitement at a price point”

Mahindra and LG Chem have collaborated to create advanced and futuristic Li-ion batteries exclusive for the India application.

Mahindra and Tata should start reporting the battery capacity in KWh instead of voltage and current values. On the other hand LG Chem is good choice for battery by Mahindra.

I hope India adopts USA's EPA system for official range measurement of EVs. EPA is closer to real world range. Europe's new system (WLTP) is more optimistic than EPA range. Older NEDC system is even worse.

I hope they also give us a longer vehicle. They should put back the vehicle in its original size when they do the electric avatar. Would encourage more people to use and drive for some longer distances.

Interesting development. Both the expected battery packs make the vehicle very realistic for regular use. Hope Mahindra deliver a "finished" product, not one that they use to get into the market and figure out how to get better.

The XUV300 is a very practical car (unlike the E20 for eg.) so coupled with a realistic (even if it is 200kms) range, it will be a competitive offering.

This is good news. Hope Mahindra will incorporate a swapable battery design, for extending the range without having to wait for a re-charge. A standard battery pack(fixed) + a booster battery pack that can be swapped at "battery stations".

Also wishing that these car companies work in synergy to ensure the charging infrastructure or even the batteries are compatible. The govt or the ARAI should play a role here.

Electric cars with the maximum range as of now :

1. Tesla Model S - 536 kms
2. Tesla Model 3 - 496 kms
3. Tesla X. - 472 kms
4. Chevy Bolt - 380 kms
5. Nissan Leaf. -. 241 kms

So the XUV 300 is supposed to be second best only to the Teslas. Well if they can achieve it, hats off to them.

But I would not bet my money on them. It could be that the 400km range is a bait and could be priced ridiculously high.

The 200km one would be possible I guess. Would love to own an electric car someday.

What we need right now is low cost EVs that can cover the daily mileage of cabbies with AC on, say 250 km with AC on. This makes the most sense as the extra upfront cost/monthly payment will be more than covered by the savings in fuel and it makes the drivers life that bit better by not having to fight with manual gear and clutch. Also, they have much less down time in regular maintenance. We don't need private EVs until a good percentage of shared mobility is converted.

Just like with CNG, it'll be a start even if they convert all buses as well as cabs (including OLA / Uber etc) to EV. That'll get the ball rolling for the wider base of private cars converting to EV as well.

Keenly awaiting this 3OO in EV guise. Will also bring AT convenience to the 3OO package.

This is very good news. A decent range main stream EV is long overdue for the Indian market. Hope this launches as per schedule. I see a lot of potential and scope for this EV. Hopefully will set the stage for more rollouts.

You missed out on the Koreans. The Hyundai Kona, Kia Niro, Hyundai Ioniq EV and the new 2020 Kia Soul EV are one of the most efficient EVs in the market.

They come with 39 or 64 kWh batteries, and real world range for a Kona in summer is 450 km.

Default Mahindra to launch XUV300 EV to rival Kona EV

Mahindra XUV300 Electric to get 350 - 400 km range-xuv-300-electric.jpg
Mahindra’s EV is expected to get a 40kWh battery pack and a 130hp motor; range likely to be over 300km on a full charge.
Quote:
An all-electric version of the Mahindra XUV300 (codename: S210) is in the works, and latest details of its powertrain with us suggest it will have the numbers to take on the Hyundai Kona Electric. The Mahindra will be powered by a near 130hp electric motor that will draw juice from a 40kWh battery pack. The car will have a range of 300km and come with DC fast-charging capabilities.
By pitting it against the Kona, Mahindra gets room to price it at quite a premium over its IC engine counterpart, clever move. So one variant to take on Kona EV, and another variant to take on Nexon EV!

Mahindra had confirmed an electric XUV 3OO with 300kms of range, to European media via a mid-term road map.

Good to see they are aiming high. It takes guts to claim to be a competitor to what is a well recognized and capable product - the Kona in this case. Setting high targets not only shows confidence in the organization, it also reflects on the attitude with which they are approaching business. Very aggressive. Really happy to see M&M taking the charge to the competitors in all segments of the car market. They are very fast to react to market sentiments & product expectations. Better than most others. Seems their EV investment with Reva is about to start showing profitable fruits. Nexon, XUV300 EVs around the corner. Interesting days ahead!

Mahindra should have been the pioneer - considering Reva was, even internationally - one of the initial adopters of the technology. It's almost near a decade since Mahindra acquired them and they really never had anything to show for it - except selling a couple of hundred E2O+ and e-Veritos to the taxi market.

Now, with a 2021 timeframe, they are entering the real desirable EV market quite late behind Hyundai, MG, TATA and possibly even Maruti Suzuki.

Being late is not a bad thing though - hope Mahindra learns from all the others and comes out with the best product and pricing. XUV 3OO is a good product and has a lot going for it - except for the price tag.
