The all-electric variant of the Mahindra XUV 300 is going to launch in India sometime during the second half of next year.
The Mahindra XUV 300 is the homegrown automaker’s offering in the sub-4-meter compact SUV segment in India. The XUV300 is going to compete against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and the Tata Nexon. Not only this, but the higher spec trims of this compact utility vehicle will take the fight to the likes of Hyundai Creta and the Nissan Kicks.
Apart from reaping the benefits of the florishing compact SUV segment in India, the XUV 300 is also going to help Mahindra in the race of compact and affordable all-electric vehicles in India. At the launch of the XUV 300, senior Mahindra officials confirmed that the automaker is currently working on an E iteration of the XUV 300.
And that we can expect the same to launch in India sometime during the second half of 2020 i.e next year. The Mahindra XUV 300 EV is going to use a set of lithium Ion batteries. This all-electric compact SUV is going to retail in two different variants distinguised on the basis of the range and power output capabilities of thier battery packs.
The variants are going to be standard and long range. The former is expected to come with a 380KW motor which is going to promise a driving range of 200 km/ However, in addition to this, there will be a 350-400 km variant on offer as well. In terms of design, apart from the obvious alterations, the gasoline and the all-electric version of the Mahindra XUV 300 will resemble with each other to a great extent.
Ahead of the launch of the Mahindra XUV 300, the homegrown automaker is going to launch an all-electric variant of the KUV100 in 2019. The same, though priced higher than the standard iteration of this vehicle is going to be the cheapest all-electric offering from the automaker.
