Scoop! Mahindra XUV.e8 electric SUV spied; new details revealed

A prototype of the Mahindra XUV.e8 electric SUV was recently spotted on the Chennai-Bangalore highway. The latest spy images reveal some new details of the upcoming EV.

While the overall shape of the XUV.e8 looks similar to the XUV700, it has a distinct front end featuring a continuous LED light bar and vertically stacked headlamp pods. The rear end, however, looks identical to the ICE version.

On the inside, the XUV.e8 has three large screens and two-spoke steering wheels similar to the new Tata Safari. The centre console has a conventional automatic gear selector and a circular dial for the drive modes.

The XUV.e8 electric SUV is likely to be based on Mahindra's INGLO platform. It is expected to use an 80 kWh battery pack, powering a single or dual-motor setup. It could pack around 227-345 BHP.

Lap seat belts? Come on Mahindra you can do better! Hope it's only for the pre production version and hope that the final version does not cut corners on safety. Especially with airbag-gate apprehensions and Safari stepping up its game.

I saw this vehicle while I was driving from Chennai - Bangalore yesterday. Along with this I also saw a coupe version or it appeared to be one right behind this vehicle. They both were parked and I was moving hence couldnt capture it.

So another jugaad EV from MM before they release their born electric SUVs. I would stay away from this too just like you need to stay away from XUV400.
This wont even be cheap. Not sure what MM's plan is but expecting people to cough up 30+ L on such a product is too much.

Hope they get the frontal appeal right this time and not mess up as it is in the XUV500

I believe INGLO platform Is pure EV platform with VW MEB components. Then this EV should have differences to ICE XUV7OO monocoque.

Would it be just similar in looks and dimensions?

Isn't this based on the new EV platform developed with Volkswagen? Just that the body is XUV700.

80 kWh battery pack? Wow, that's gonna have fantastic range - honestly genuinely usable as an alternative to an ICE car.
