Mahindra & Mahindra, one of India’s leading SUV manufacturers has unveiled its new state-of-the-art INGLO EV platform and five electric SUVs under two EV brands as part of its vision for the future.
The company in an event unveiled two new brands created specifically to house the company’s EV portfolio – XUV with the twin peak logo in copper and the all-new electric-only brand christened BE.
The OEM says the XUV brand will host a range of products that builds upon the Mahindra legacy while embracing the future. The BE brand on the other hand will sport a bold, evocative and exhilarating new design language.
The manifestation of these two brands has been showcased via five e-SUVs: the XUV.e8, XUV.e9, BE.05, BE.07 and BE.09. The first four of these are to be launched between 2024 and 2026.
The Inglo platform will meet the best of both worlds – Indian at heart and global in its reach. Mahindra says it encapsulates progressive battery technology, platform architecture, brain power and human machine interface. The name also symbolises the flow and exchange of energy and emotion, a Glo of well-being, a system that brings complete harmony.
The Inglo platform will underpin all the Mahindra EVs going forward. The purpose-built platform will pack intuitive, intelligent and immersive innovations that will serve as the backbone of the Mahindra EV architecture and is the heart of its ultimate human-machine interface.
It delivers a multi-sensorial driving experience with a futuristic, augmented reality-enabled heads-up display, edge-to-edge screen, 5G network capability and Over-The-Air updates that will keep the EVs as good as new.
Dr Anish Shah, MD and & CEO, Mahindra Group said, “We are proud and delighted to showcase our Born Electric vision. It provides a strategic direction that is in line with our core philosophy of ‘Rise’ – to be an organisation that will be counted among the best in the world and at the same time rise for our planet to fight against climate change. Mahindra will offer customers future-ready technology, head-turning design, world-class products and the benefits of global partnerships. By 2027, we expect that a quarter of the SUVs we sell will be electric.”
Rajesh Jejurikar, ED – Auto and Farm Sectors, Mahindra & Mahindra said, “Our vision of Born Electric is underpinned by the future-ready Inglo platform, two new exciting brands and the Heartcore design philosophy. The five electric SUVs provide a powerful glimpse of our strategic direction and hews to the Mahindra attitude of a racing spirit and the attitude of adventure. We aim to not only electrify the roads but also the hearts and minds of SUV aficionados in India and around the world.”
