Currently under development, the all-electric XUV300 has been codenamed the S210.

  • The electric SUV will be powered by batteries sourced from LG Chem, a Korean firm.

  • All-electric XUV300 will be available in two variants -  standard and long range.

  • Battery modules for the all-electric sub-4 metre SUV will be assembled in India.

  • Mahindra has just launched the XUV300 in India but that is just half the story. The Indian carmaker has now confirmed that an electric version of the sub-4 metre SUV will be launched in the second half of 2020. While the XUV300 was given the codename S201, it’s electric version, which is currently under development, has been labelled the S210.

    The electric SUV is expected to be similar to the XUV300 in terms of styling and equipment. It could be the first sub-4 metre electric SUV to be launched in the country. It will, however, not be the first electric SUV on our shores as the Hyundai Kona and the Audi e-tron are likely to be launched before it.

    The electric XUV300 will be powered by batteries that are developed in Korea. Mahindra had previously announced a collaboration with LG Chem of Korea for the development and procurement of battery cells for use in the Indian EV market. LG Chem will also supply lithium-ion cells, which were until now imported from China, and Mahindra will start assembling the battery module in India soon in a bid to cut down costs.

    The electric XUV300 is expected to be offered in two variants with varying range. The less expensive variant will be targeted at people who want to use the electric SUV within city limits. The more expensive variant will get a longer range that should make intercity commutes possible. We expect the low-range S210 to be priced below Rs 20 lakh, which should make it significantly more affordable than the all-electric Hyundai Kona (likely to be priced around the Rs 25 lakh mark).
