Rumour: Mahindra to launch XUV300 EV by June 2024

The XUV300 EV will reportedly cost Rs 2 lakh less than the XUV400.

According to a media report, Mahindra’s upcoming XUV300 facelift will get a pure-electric option. The new XUV300 EV will be positioned below the XUV400 and will compete with the Tata Nexon.ev.

The report states that while the XUV300 EV will be based on the facelift version, it will get a few EV-specific design elements. Spy images suggest that the car will sport a design inspired by Mahindra’s Born Electric range. This includes large C-shaped LED daytime running lights and a refreshed rear end featuring C-shaped taillights with a full-width LED light bar.

The XUV300 EV is expected to get a few updates on the interior as well. The electric SUV could get a bigger touchscreen infotainment system and a new instrument console; among other changes.

Reports suggest that the XUV300 EV will use a 35 kWh battery pack, which is slightly smaller than the one offered in the XUV400. Hence, the overall maximum range is also expected to lower. That being said, it could get the same front-mounted electric motor.

The XUV300 EV will reportedly cost Rs 2 lakh less than the XUV400. Assuming these reports are true, whether this move will help boost sales remains to be seen.
