Mahindra to support Ssangyong; develop EVs based on MESMA 350
According to a media report, Mahindra could come to the aid of Ssangyong by supplying its EV platform.
The report states that Mahindra plans to develop and supply the electric SUV platform called MESMA 350, to the Korean carmaker. This platform is suitable for converting existing internal combustion engine models to electric. It can also support standalone EVs.
The MESMA 350 platform was showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. The Mahindra Electric Scalable Modular Architecture (MESMA) is scalable in terms of performance and range. The eXUV300 is based on this platform.
Other derivatives of this architecture include MESMA 48 and MESMA 72, which supports 3-wheelers, quadricycles and compact cars; among a few other vehicle categories.

"Lets break up, its not working anymore. But we'll stay best friends!"
My interpretation (maybe wrong) of the above news.
Perhaps is a logical move, as XUV300 is working good numbers for Mahindra and they would want to have XUV300EV the soonest they can.

The learnings from E100, which is also essentially based on the MESMA platform could very well be leveraged to fine-tune the eXUV3OO which will be launched in India. This way they can shorten the development time for eXUV3OO as well.
