Mahindra announced its Q4 results yesterday and with that, the company also revealed its future plans. Mahindra and Mahindra’s new Managing Director Anish Shah has already announced the manufacturer’s plan to focus on its core value products in the future, which are full-size SUVs. The brand revealed plans for launching around 9 vehicles by 2026. Here is a list of products that we know will launch in the coming years and their rendered images.
Mahindra Thar 5-door
The all-new Mahindra Thar has become a runaway success for the brand with the popularity rising so much that many customers have to wait for one year before getting their hands on the vehicle. Mahindra has decided to go ahead with the five-door version of the Thar to target a wider audience in the Indian market. The five-door version will not be as capable as the three-door version because of the increased wheelbase but Mahindra is also planning to offer the 2WD option to the 5-door version of the Thar.
For a long time, Mahindra has been testing W602, which will get the production name of XUV700. It will become the flagship product of the brand and will take on the likes of Tata Safari, the upcoming Hyundai Alcazar, MG Hector Plus and the likes. However, Mahindra is likely to price it close to Rs 20 lakh. The XUV700 will come with a handful of segment-first features including the ADAS. In fact, the car may get the most powerful diesel engine in the segment. Mahindra is currently testing the engine in three different states of tunes.
Mahindra is also testing the all-new Scorpio for a long time on the Indian roads. The production version of the all-new Scorpio may get a different name like the Scorpio Stinger. Mahindra has already registered a few names but the brand is yet to announce the official name of the car. It will be much bigger than the current version of the Scorpio and it will take on the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Nissan Kicks and the likes.
Mahindra is also working on the all-new Bolero. While the manufacturer is yet to start testing the car on public roads, Mahindra has the car in its upcoming line-up in the next 5 years. The all-new Bolero will get a new platform and the design is likely to remain similar to the current model but with some modern highlights and additions. The Bolero is one of the oldest selling production cars in India.
Mahindra XUV Aero (W620)
Mahindra will launch an SUV-Coupe in the Indian market. First showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. The concept XUV Aero had some really high-end features like suicide doors, we don’t think that the production version of the XUV900 will come with such features. However, expect some high-end features like frameless door design to be available with the car. The XUV900 will be a five-seater vehicle with four doors. The cabin will be similar to the XUV700 but yes, there will be a few tweaks to make the more expensive XUV900 feel different.
Mahindra XUV300 EV
Mahindra is also working to launch electric cars in the Indian market. With the success of the Nexon EV, Mahindra will target the same segment as the XUV300 EV. First showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo, Mahindra will launch the XUV300 EV with two range options.
That’s not it, Mahindra is also working on the all-new XUV500, which will launch by 2024 in the Indian market. The all-new XUV500 will again target the Hyundai Creta mid-size SUV segment. Mahindra will discontinue the XUV500 upon the launch of the XUV700 but will bring it back in 2024. Mahindra will launch the all-new XUV300 in the Indian market in the next few years to keep the model fresh in the market.
The second electric car from the brand will be the KUV100 EV. It will aim to become the most affordable electric car in the market and Mahindra will target a wide range of customers in the market.
