Coming to the electric motor and battery pack, Mahindra had confirmed that they will be offering a 80 kWh pattery pack for the electric XUV700. The SUV would generate anywhere between 230 Bhp to 350 Bhp.
It is available with Automatic & Manual transmission. Depending upon the variant and fuel type the XUV700 has a mileage of . The XUV700 is a 7 seater 4 cylinder car and has length of 4695, width of 1890 and a wheelbase of 2750.
XUV 700 is a good car?
Very good car at 29 lakh with a ton of features and safety. It is very stable and good to drive, a very comfortable car.
Mahindra has based its XUV.e8 on the new INGLO platform promising 60 kWh to 80 kWh battery packs. These battery packs are made of LFP cells that are sourced by Volkswagen. While the rest of battery systems like BMS, are likely to be designed in-house. Look at the walkaround video of XUV.e8 below, credits to Overdrive. But the top hat is almost identical to ICE-powered XUV700 that is currently sold in India. Even though XUV.e8 gets the same profile with slightly sharper wheel arches, front and rear are different. Also, the whole car seems to be wrapped in a matte black wrap with copper-coloured textures all around. It is unlikely to be carried over to production model.
Mahindra XUV700 will go on sale in the coming weeks, with the aforementioned petrol and diesel engine options. The forthcoming SUV has a lot of segment-first or segment-best features on offer, like a dual-screen dash, AdrenoX AI tech, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), etc. It will have a starting price of Rs. 11.99 lakh (ex-showroom), and will be available in 5- and 7-seat configurations.
