If you are hearing the name “born electric” for the first time, then here is a brief explanation. Born Electric vehicles sit on Mahindra’s dedicated skateboard INGLO EV platform that will underpin a range of upcoming SUVs under both the BE and XUV sub brands. This platform allows them to modify the width, length, wheelbase and overhangs to make various body styles on the same platform with minimal engineering efforts and small costs.
Mahindra confirmed that these SUVs will offer 230PS to 285PS of power on the rear-wheel drive variants. The 4-wheel drive models will have 340PS to 395PS of power output. With the dual-motor setup, these SUVs will have a 0-100kmph acceleration time of 5 to 6 seconds. The battery capacity of these SUVs will vary between 60 and 80kWh and they’ll support up to 175kW DC fast charging to juice up from 0 to 80% in 30 minutes.
