Mahindra & Mahindra has released yet another teaser video for its upcoming Born EV concepts, ahead of their official reveal in July 2022
Mahindra & Mahindra will unveil three electric SUV concepts in July this year, and ahead of that, the manufacturer has released multiple teasers for them. The latest teaser video gives us a few close but brief glimpses at the interior and exterior design of these upcoming EVs, and it surely has us excited for what’s to come.
The cabin of the EV shown in the teaser below gets a cockpit-style design, with LEDs running across it – starting from the centre console, all the way to the door on the driver’s side. We also see a rotary knob and a chunky lever in the centre console, which are likely the drive selector controls. The concept vehicle gets sporty bucket seats, with wraparound headrests.
The exterior design elements visible in the video include alloy wheels with a sporty and futuristic design and rear-view cameras instead of ORVMs. We also see a fin-like pattern on the cladding running across the length of the vehicle near the bottom. Also, if you pay attention, the panoramic sunroof is visible here.
Thanks to previous teasers, we know that M&M will offer a dual-screen setup on Born EVs, similar to what we see on Mahindra XUV700. Also, the vehicles will feature bold LED DRLs and LED taillights running across the face and tail, respectively. These concept electric SUVs have been designed by the UK-based Mahindra Advanced Design Europe (MADE).
Among these upcoming Mahindra Born EVs, two will have “traditional” profiles, while one will be a coupe-style SUV (expected to be the rumoured XUV900). These EVs will be built on M&M’s new Born electric platform, and they won’t share their architecture with existing IC engine vehicles.
During its annual analyst meet last year, Mahindra & Mahindra had revealed its plans to launch the Born EVs between 2025 and 2026. However, with the push for electric mobility in the Indian automobile industry, we might see the production version of these concept EVs arrive even before that.
Born EVs aren’t the only electric cars that Mahindra & Mahindra is working on currently. The brand is planning to launch its KUV100-based EV in India very soon, followed by a Mahindra XUV300-based EV.
