In the 2016 Indian Auto Expo, Mahindra introduced the concept model of its new SUV, Mahindra XUV Aero. Now the company has confirmed its production. At first, the company had planned to develop the vehicle with a turbocharged diesel engine, but now it is focusing on the electric powertrain.
Mahindra XUV will be the flagship brand of Aero Electric Company. The performance figures of this vehicle are also fantastic. This vehicle can generate a power of 200 BHP and torque of 400 Newton. Mahindra XUV Aero can catch the speed of 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in just 8 Seconds. This will be Mahindra’s fastest that which is being built for the mass market. Its top speed will be 190 kilometers per hour, and once it is fully charged, it will cover around 300 kilometers.
The design of this Mahindra electric SUV is also unique. This will be the India’s most notable crossover. Mahindra will be launching it as a 5-seater. The car is expected to be Mahindra’s most expensive car in India. Its price is estimated to be around Rs 20 Lakh.
To justify the cost, Mahindra is going to take special care of the comfort level along with many latest features in this SUV. However, Mahindra has not yet disclosed about its launch date but Mahindra has indicated that it will bring it before 2020. Mahindra’s electric SUV will also be displayed in Auto Expo 2018.
Mahindra has been among the top players in electric vehicle manufacturing in the country. It was the first one to introduce an electric passenger in the Indian market. Though the launch didn’t turn out to be much fruitful owing to lack of infrastructure in terms of charging and battery replacement, the present phase has created demand for electric vehicles. And on such grounds, Mahindra will be bringing in electric SUV.
