6 upcoming Mahindra SUVs, and what they’ll look like: New Scorpio to 2020 XUV500

Mahindra is one of the biggest indigenous manufacturers with a global presence for a few years now. The company has come a long way from its origins and is now a well-recognized name across the globe. The quality of vehicles has also gone up considerably and Mahindra is trying to further up its game with its future models. Speaking of which, Mahindra is working on all-new models of various of its SUVs on sale currently. A lot of them have been revealed to the public while some are yet to have a clear picture of them out in public. For the same, here is a list of 6 upcoming SUVs from Mahindra along with their renders and images.

KUV100 facelift

Expected Launch by: 2020

Mahindra Kuv100 With Xuv500 Look 2

The KUV100 is probably the first micro SUV that went on sale in India and even though it has not been a raging success, it isn’t a complete flop too. As of now, there has been no official information or confirmation about the development of a new KUV100 model but this render shows us how it could look like if a new model comes out in future. The KUV100 render here dons a XUV500 grille at the front and looks pretty cool and smart for sure. The headlights have also been inspired by the XUV500 and these touches give this SUV a much more attractive appearance than the current mode.


Expected Launch by: Mid 2019

Mahindra has invested big in EV and its racing division has been doing quite good in the Formula E races around the world. The first electric vehicle from the manufacturer in India will be the e-KUV100, which has already been showcased to the public. It is based on the regular KUV100 but instead of an IC engine, the e-KUV100 gets a battery pack. Other upgrades include features like remote diagnostics, cabin pre-cooling, real-time location tracking and driving pattern monitoring. Mahindra claims that the e-KUV will have a range of 350 km on a single charge apart from having a 0-100 km/h time of 9 seconds and a top speed of 186 km/h. When launched, it will be one of the cheapest electric cars in India.

XUV300 electric

Expected Launch by: 2020

Mahindra Xuv 300 Ev Rendered

The XUV300 has established itself as a good option in the sub-4 meter segment and Mahindra plans to launch its electric version in the future. The XUV300 EV is likely to be powered by a 380-volt battery system along with another lower powered unit. The 380-volt battery unit could offer around 250 km range along with a 0-100 km/h sprint in just 11 seconds. As for the top speed, the car is expected to go all the way up to 160 km/h which will easliy suffice for normal usage.


Expected Launch by: 2020

New Thar Render Full

The Mahindra Thar is among the most awaited launches of 2020. It is expected that Mahindra will take the wraps off this new off-road vehicle during the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo. The exteriors, interiors as well as the powertrain of the vehicle will be upgraded. Lookwise the new Thar will be bigger and more muscular than the current model.

It will be built on a new chassis and will be powered by a new 2.0-litre diesel engine with a power output of around 130 Bhp. It will also get a hardtop version which comes as a piece of good news for enthusiasts. Apart from this, the cabin will also be updated and will get touchscreen infotainment and front-facing seats among others.


Expected Launch by: 2020

Next Gen Mahindra Scorpio 2

Another SUV that will be upgraded next year is the Scorpio. It has been spotted testing a few times already and going by the spy shots, the SUV features a more muscular design and is larger in size too. Mahindra will also give a new platform and a more powerful engine to the new Scorpio along with an updated, modern cabin. The interiors of the new generation Scorpio are likely to feature a large touchscreen infotainment, automatic climate control and parking cameras among others. Mahindra will use an all-new 2.0-litre diesel engine that will be found on the Thar and the XUV500 as well.

XUV500 replacement

Expected Launch by: Late 2020

2020 Mahindra Xuv500 Render

The new 2020 XUV500 was spotted testing for the first time this week and we admit, it does not resemble the render above in any way. But we have included this render here because there are no images yet which show the new XUV500 completely undisguised and honestly, we would love to see it look like the one above. To let you know, Mahindra has gone the evolutionary route in terms of design and therefore the body profile and basic design DNA of the new XUV500 will be pretty much the same as the current generation car.

However, the new XUV500 will be larger in size and will get an updated front end design apart from cabin upgrades. Also present will be an all-new 2.0-litre diesel engine that will churn out around 180 Bhp of power on this SUV. Both automatic and manual gearbox options are expected on the XUV500 replacement and it could come with a 4×4 drivetrain also, though that is not likely to happen.
