Mahindra has teased its electric SUV online with a new video ahead of the unveiling of the automaker’s new EV series in July 2022. The automaker has teased its range of electric SUVs a few months back. The latest teaser video gives us more glimpses of the upcoming cars. Although the automaker hasn’t revealed the name of the upcoming car teased online, it could be the premium SUV XUV900. The production model is expected to hit the market sometime in 2023 or 2024. However, it is not long before a fully developed concept is developed.

The Mahindra XUV900 may come as the production variant of the coupe concept that was showcased by the home carmaker at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. However, the first to come out of Mahindra’s stable will be the e-XUV300, which will take on rivals like the Tata Nexon EV, MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona EV when launched. The all-electric iteration of the XUV300 will come under the Bern Electric range as part of the automaker’s seven-electric SUV fleet.
The latest teaser video reveals that the new electric SUV has been designed by UK-based Mahindra Advanced Design Europe (MADE) under the leadership of the automaker’s chief designer Pratap Bose. The video also indicates that Mahindra has taken influence from its Formula E racing experience.
Talking about the design, the video doesn’t share much about the exterior details. However, expect it to come with a bold and chunky look that is visible in a few glimpses. It showcases sporty off-road focused wheels, sculpted side body etc. Other design elements include a well-sloped windshield and a sleek ORVM that will come with a camera instead of conventional mirrors.
The video teases the cabin of the EV concept. It showcases a feature-packed premium cockpit. At the center is a futuristic steering wheel with the new brand logo, and sitting behind the steering wheel is a large and wide digital display that shows various data and information about the SUV. This digital display will also serve as the car’s infotainment system. The central dashboard has been extended to the rear of the vehicle, creating a sound similar to that of a fighter jet cockpit.
