Mahindra To Launch 16 New SUVs: Details

Nine New ICE SUVs

XUV 3XO

The first of these SUVs is the recently launched XUV 3XO. This particular SUV, as we already knew, was going to be the first of the three mid-cycle updates. Mahindra has taken the country by storm with the new XUV 3XO. It was reported by the brand that it received over 50,000 bookings in just an hour.

Deliveries will start on May 26. This time around, the company has launched this sub-compact SUV with a heavily revised exterior, and it gets a ton of features on the inside, like a panoramic sunroof, ADAS level 2, and a bunch of others. Powertrain options have been kept the same.

XUV 7XO

Expected to be the updated version of the XUV700. Mahindra is also gearing up for the launch of the XUV 7XO. This new name has been recently trademarked by the brand. As the company has recently renamed the XUV 300 as XUV 3XO, it will most likely rename the XUV 700 as XUV 7XO as well.

The exact list of updates for the new Mahindra XUV 7XO has not been revealed. However, it will most likely come with design tweaks and upgraded technology. Given the success of the XUV700 since its launch in August 2021, this new facelift aims to keep the model fresh and appealing to consumers.

Scorpio-N

As per the reports, the updated Scorpio-N is expected to offer improved features. This means that the SUV could most likely get feature upgrades such as ADAS level 2 and others. It could also get slightly revised exterior design as well.

As we all know, this all-new lifestyle off-roader SUV will share its underpinnings and powertrains with the Scorpio-N and Thar 3-Door. The Thar Armada will get additional doors in the middle along with a new bench seat. It will also get a ton of new features, including a full metal roof.

It will also get a single-pane electric sunroof, roof-mounted speakers, a new bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and others. Most likely, it will also be equipped with ADAS. Other updates include a new front grille, 19-inch alloy wheels, and a few minor exterior design changes over the three-door Thar.

Mahindra is also gearing up for the launch of the new Scorpio pickup. The extremely rugged-looking concept of the Scorpio pickup was initially shown as a concept last year in South Africa. This model will be based on the Scorpio-N Platform and will offer similar design cues. But in general, it will boast a much more utilitarian design.

New Bolero SUV

Mahindra is working hard on the development of the next-generation Bolero. This highly popular SUV from the brand that still pulls a lot of sales will get a brand new platform. The company is developing the new Bolero based on the all-new U171 platform.

As per the reports, it will be able to retain its legendary durability. However, it will now be incorporating modern design and features. This new Bolero aims to appeal to traditional Bolero fans. Along with it, the company is aiming to lure in more new buyers looking for a rugged yet contemporary SUV.

Bolero Seven-Seat Derivative

Alongside the new Bolero, Mahindra will introduce a seven-seat variant. This new model will also be based on the same U171 platform, which it is currently developing. This derivative will provide additional seating capacity. Apart from these details, not much is known about this SUV.

XUV 1XO and XUV 5XO

As per the recent reports, Mahindra has also trademarked the names XUV 1XO and XUV 5XO. Presently, the specific details about these models remain scarce. However, what we can guess is that the XUV 1XO could be a micro-SUV, which will be competing with the Tata Punch and Hyundai Exter.

Meanwhile, the XUV 5XO could be a compact SUV. And it could be competing in the fiercely competitive midsize SUV segment. It most likely will be taking on the rivals like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, and others.

Seven New Born-Electric Vehicles (BEVs)

Mahindra, as we all are aware, is betting big on the future of electric mobility. For this, it has already revealed its INGLO platform. The company, based on this new EV architecture, is gearing up to launch a ton of new electric SUVs.
