Following the announcement that five electric vehicle ideas would be unveiled on August 15, 2022, Mahindra has teased the Born Electric range once more by providing a glimpse of the technologies and features that would be accessible. The futuristic EVs will make their global debut on Independence Day at 5 p.m. IST.
They will be revealed in Oxfordshire, England. Personalization options for the user include adjusting the seat to suit the driver with different degrees of reclination, climatic operation, setting music preferences, and adjusting ambient lighting via a new user interface on the horizontally oriented large touchscreen infotainment system, which Mahindra refers to as ‘Multi-sensory experiences.’
Mahindra has provided us with a preview of the general UI structure, and the inside will certainly require fewer physical buttons as most of the capabilities will be accomplished through a touch input, as well as navigation and Bluetooth connectivity. Previous teasers suggest that the cabin will include a dual infotainment screen, similar to the XUV700, but in a more modern style.

The ambient lighting system will highlight the wraparound design around the driver’s cockpit, and the air conditioning vents will be buried in the dashboard as part of the minimalistic motif. The center console is well laid out and might get a rotary dial for the drive modes and a drive selector, as well as ADAS technologies.
A panoramic sunroof and a two-spoke hexagonal-shaped steering wheel will also be available. The ‘Born Electric’ SUVs are being developed by Mahindra Advanced Design Europe (MADE) in Oxfordshire, under the leadership of Mahindra Chief Designer Pratap Bose. We anticipate that one of the five concepts will be an electrified version of the XUV700.
They will mostly have a coupe-like roofline, with the XUV400 – an electric compact SUV based on the XUV300 that will compete with Tata Nexon EV – being the smallest of the concepts. Teasers have also revealed C-shaped headlamps and taillamps, an LED lighting strip, razor-sharp body panels, and other details.
