Pratap Bose Applauds Mahindra Designers

Pratap Bose is the Chief Design Officer at Mahindra Group. His first project at Mahindra was the XUV700. Thereafter, he was involved with the recently launched Scorpio N which received over 1,00,000 bookings within the first 25 minutes of the portal opening. However, Mahindra’s Born Electric vision was being designed by the employees in Europe. Since Pratap Bose is the Design Head, he must’ve had a huge say in the matters. Nevertheless, the team in Europe was primarily involved in designing these futuristic electric SUVs that will define the brand going forward.

These SUVs are built on the dedicated INGLO skateboard platform. The XUV.e8 and XUV.e9 are based on the XUV700 in terms of design, while the BE05, BE07 and BE09 are completely new featuring attractive design themes and body types including coupe-SUV. Looking at these prototypes certainly portrays the image that these belong to some luxury carmakers and have a global appeal. That is the aim with the future EVs from Mahindra.

Pratap Bose posted on social media along with the design sketches of the new EVs, “ART is at the heart of our new design philosophy; HEARTCORE DESIGN. Our designers, modellers and engineers are true automotive artists. I am glad I am not looking for a job as a creative designer against these guys!” This clearly indicates how impressed he was with the products. Also, the automobile experts and audience seemed equally impressed by the Mahindra EVs and are excited to see them in flesh. However, we will need to wait at least until the end of 2024 for the first of these SUVs (XUV.e8) to launch. Do share your opinions about the Mahindra EVs.
