Remember the cool concept car from Mahindra at the 2016 Auto Expo? Well the production might just come as, hold your breath, an electric car! Yes it might just happen as Mahindra is betting big on electric cars and has revealed its plans to invest in electric cars in India. One of its upcoming, possible launches could be the XUV Aero EV. Mahindra is currently looking at it and as with electric cars, cost plays a vital role and for the XUV Aero Electric, it depends on the cost for making the high voltage powertrain.
It would have to be a much bigger one than the 48V and 72V electric powertrains it currently has. The concept at the Auto Expo had a diesel but with Mahindra showcasing its future plans with EV 2.0, the futuristic styling of the XUV Aero would be a perfect fit as with an electric powertrain. Thus future Mahindra EVs would have more power, longer range with added performance.
