Mahindra will use Blade and Prismatic battery technologies for the SUVs. It’s worth noting that BYD also use Blade batteries for their E6 MPV and Atto 3 SUV. BYD also supply Blade batteries to Tesla’s Gigafactory in Germany.

The XUV e08 will launch first in December 2024 while the E09 will launch 4 months later. The BE 05 and BE 07 will launch in October of 2025 and 2026, respectively. Mahindra have not decided the launch timeline for the BE 09. Considering the amount of technology, body sizes and battery capacity, we expect the prices of these vehicles to go up to Rs. 50.0 lakh (ex-showroom).
