- The all-electric version of the newly-launched XUV300 to arrive in the second half of 2020.
- No official powertrain data is available at the moment.
Mahindra has officially launched the long-awaited XUV300 with much fanfare. The new sub-four metre offering from Mahindra’s stable will also get an all-electric version which will arrive in India by the second half of 2020. The electric XUV300 will carry most of the design and features of the standard car but the powertrain details are still scarce.
The electric version of the XUV300 is codenamed the S210. Although the electric XUV300 won’t be the first electric vehicle from Mahindra, it will be the first of its kind vehicle in the country. According to reports, Mahindra is developing a new set of high-powered electric powertrains. So the S210 could have more than one powertrain option when it arrives later next year. The more powerful version will have higher kW/h output for spirited drives, while the other version will be better suited for commuting with a power output compromised for a higher driving range.
The battery cell for the S210 will be manufactured in India by LG Chem. The Korean company is one of the leading battery suppliers around the globe. The S201 could make use of high-density lithium-ion battery technology co-developed by Mahindra Electric and LG Chem. The Mahindra S210 SUV might be a flag bearer for the electric SUV segment in the country. More details of the electric XUV300 will be revealed in the coming months. So stay tuned to CarWale.
