Mahindra and Mahindra came up with a handful of rather interesting prototypes at the recently conducted Auto Expo 2018. But it’s only now that the company has made an official statement on the launch timeline of its upcoming launches in an interaction with a section of media. Here, in this post, we take a look at the 5 Upcoming New Mahindra Cars and SUVs in India. All of the upcoming new Mahindra cars and SUVs will launch in the 2018-2019 financial year, which means the launch of all these new models will take in less than 12 months. Read on for all the available details.
New SsangyongRexton-based Mahindra Premium SUV (aka XUV700)
|Launch Date (expected)||Q1, 2019|
|Price (expected)||Rs 20 lakh to Rs 25 lakh|
|Specifications||2.2-Litre Turbo Diesel with 6-speed MT/AT|
The company showcased a Mahindra-badged new-gen Rexton at the Auto Expo 2018. Speculations are rife that this premium SUV is slated to go on sale with the XUV700 moniker. While we would like to take the nomenclature with a bit of salt, it’s pretty much for sure that the launch of this SUV is very much in the pipeline. The new model might go on sale in the last quarter of this year with prices starting at roughly Rs 20 lakh.
Mahindra U321 MPV
|Launch Date (expected)||April, 2018|
|Price (expected)||Rs 12 lakh to Rs 15 lakh|
|Specifications||2.2-Litre Turbo Diesel with 6-speed MT|
The upcoming Mahindra U321 MPV is likely to be very close to its market launch. Expected to become a slightly cheaper alternative to the all-conquering InnovaCrysta, the U321 will be a much more premium product that the Xylo. Prices are expected to start at Rs 12 lakh. Speculations are rife that it will get a less powerful and a more fuel efficient version of the 2.2-Litre oil burner that will power the new Rexton.
Mahindra S201 Crossover
|Launch Date (expected)||Q4, 2018|
|Price (expected)||Rs 9 lakh to Rs 12 lakh|
|Specifications||1.5-litre Petrol, 1.5-litre Diesel with 6-speed MT/AT|
The S201 is basically a Hyundai Creta-rivalling crossover that looks likely to launch by the end of this year. The S201 will cost roughly Rs 9-12 lakh and will offer both manual and automatic transmission options for both the Petrol and the Diesel engine. Talking about the engines, both the motors will be considerably modern units that will offer a good mix of performance and mileage.
Mahindra XUV500 Facelift
|Launch Date (expected)||Q3, 2018|
|Price (expected)||Rs13 lakh to Rs 19 lakh|
|Specifications||2.2-litre Diesel with 6-speed MT/AT|
Mahindra and Mahindra will launch yet another facelift of the hot-selling XUV500 around Diwali this year. The upcoming facelift will bring in a few styling tweaks and some new features. It has been rumoured that the updated XUV500 will get a more powerful, 170 BHP, motor. However, in our recent interaction with a company official, this claim has been completely quashed.
Mahindra KUV100 Electric
|Launch Date (expected)||Q4, 2018|
|Price (expected)||Rs8-9 lakh|
|Specifications||Electric motor with Li-ON batteries, eCVT|
Mahindra brought an electric version of the KUV100 sub-4 m compact SUV at the Auto Expo 2018. The eKUV100 borrows its electric power plant from the eVerito. The car might launch before the advent of 2020. The company has already confirmed that it will launch an electric car by the end of this year. There are good chances that the upcoming model in question here is the KUV100 electric.
