Mahindra is slowly emerging as a big auto maker on the global scale. The company has made various acquisitions in the automotive sector worldwide, including Pininfarina, BSA, Peugeot Motorcycles. The company is renewing its vehicle lineup and with a global expertise, Mahindra has a lead. It is planning to launch 10 new cars including Facelift and Generation Upgrade in the coming days. Below are 10 upcoming Mahindra SUVs with their launch time limit.
Expected Launch by: Mid 2019
Mahindra exhibited e-KUV compact SUV at the Delhi Auto Expo and it is expected to be launched this year. This six-seat car will feature many smart features like Remote Diagnostics, Cabin Pre-Cooling, Real-Time Location Tracking and Driving Pattern. In the e-KUV, a single charge of 350 km has been claimed. Mahindra has claimed that the electrified QUV will get the top speed of 9-100 km / hour and the speed of 186 km / h for 9 seconds, which is quite fast for a car in this segment. On launch, it will be one of the cheapest electric cars in the Indian market.
Expected Launch by: late 2019
Mahindra has been working on the Facilitated version of TUV300 for some time now. We hope new models will come to the Indian market by the middle or end of 2019. In this car you will find many new features besides new body design. As the company now has another compact SUV in the segment as XUV300, the cost of TUV300 will be lower. It will come with airbags, parking sensors, ABS + EBD as well as other standard security features which have been made mandatory by upcoming security norms.
Expected Launch by: 14 February, 2019
The XUV300 will be the first launch for the company in 2019, which will later see many other launches being made. Based on the SsangYong Tivoli, the XUV300 will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and Ford Ecosport among others in the segment. It will come with several class leading features like 7 airbags, discs on all four wheels, steering modes among others. Powering the car will be an all new 1.2 litre petrol engine that is said to be the most torque rich motor in the segment. The diesel motor will be the same as on the Marazzo, churning out 121 Bhp of power along with 300 Nm of torque.
Expected Launch by: End 2019
The XUV300 will be a sub-4 meter compact SUV, which is actually a cut version of SsangYong Civoli. Mahindra, however, is hoping to make a long wheelbase version of the XUV300, which is probably Tivoli or larger than that. This will take place between Hyundai Crata and Renault duster, and possibly will be named as the XUV 400 or the XUV 300 Plus. Instead of increasing the cargo space, the company is more likely to offer a third line because none of the popular compact SUVs have been offered so far.
Expected Launch by: First quarter of 2019
Another member of XUV300 family will be XUV300 electric. It will present a slightly different design than regular car but maintain overall shape. The electric version of the compact SUV can be powered by 380 volt systems as well as another lower powered unit. The 380 volt battery unit can offer around 250 km range in only 11 seconds with 0-100 km / hr sprint. The top speed can be expected to be approximately 160 km / h, which is quite enough for normal use.
Expected Launch by: 2020
In all the cars coming up by Mahindra, the new Thar is the most anticipated by enthusiasts. The new Thar has spied several times and has been caught on the video too. The new Thar is larger than the model that has been set to change it. It is built on an all new platform which is also reportedly shared by Scorpio. It will provide all security features like airbags, ABS + EBD, parking sensors, among others as per the new safety norms. According to sources, this will be powered by a new 2.0 liter engine, which has a power figure of up to 140 bp. New suspension setup with coil springs will also be available in the new Thar.
Expected Launch by: 2020
With the new Thar, another vehicle that will be launched is the new Mahindra Scorpio. Mahindra Scorpio is one of India’s best-selling SUVs. The SUV is getting stronger since 2002 and the company expects to maintain a market share in Scorpio with the new model. According to several reports, the next BS-VI emission norms are expected to be followed by the next-generation Jane Scorpio immediately after April 1, 2020. This new 2.0 liter engine is expected to operate with expected output of 140. Bhp -300 nm.
