Mahindra XUV.e8 exterior & interior design patented

The XUV.e8 is a pure-electric version of the XUV700.

Mahindra has filed several design patents that reveal the exterior and interior details of the upcoming XUV.e8 electric SUV. We have seen most of these parts on test mules already.

Starting with the exterior, 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. 

Mahindra has filed a patent for the new headlamp cluster design. It is a triangular unit housing three LED lights, stacked vertically, with an LED projector headlight on top.

The patent also reveals the new dashboard with its triple-screen setup. It has a gloss black trim around the edges. The XUV.e8 will also get a unique steering wheel. It is an octagonal 2-spoke design. It also has a red centre mark. 

The XUV.e8 is a pure-electric version of the XUV700. It is expected to use an 80 kWh battery pack, powering a single or dual-motor setup. It could pack around 227-345 BHP.
