Written by Nizam Shaikh

Mahindra is currently testing the XUV.e9 electric SUV in the Indian market. Once again, images of the Mahindra XUV.e9 from Ladakh have emerged on the internet. However this time, the SUV is seen parked in between two other cars. This image gives us an understanding of the dimensions of the XUV.e9.

Mahindra XUV.e9 – Size

The Mahindra XUV.e9 has been spotted parked between a Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire and Alto. This gives us a rough idea how big the Mahindra XUV.e9 will look when the SUV is launched in the Indian market. Reports suggest that the XUV.e9 SUV will be around 4790mm in length. Parked in between the small hatchback and the compact sedan, the XUV.e9 looks quite butch and brawny.

The Mahindra XUV.e9 comes with an upright front fascia and power bulges on the bonnet. In addition to this, the Mahindra XUV.e9 comes with a sloping roofline that meets the end of the bootlid, offering a crossover stance. The XUV.e9 concept features connected LED lamps on both the front and back as well as a large glasshouse. The Mahindra XUV.e9 also  gets large alloy wheels which look quite prominent when viewed alongside the Alto hatchback.

Mahindra XUV.e9 – Electric Platform

The Mahindra XUV.e9 will be using Mahindra’s INGLO platform. The brand has revealed that the INGLO platform can offer up to 250 kW power in all-wheel-drive and 170 kW in rear-wheel-drive. The platform is also capable enough to accelerate from 0-100 kmph in just 5-6 seconds. In addition to this, the INGLO platform is also capable of accommodating battery pack from 60 kWh to 80 kWh.

The high mountain desert of Ladakh has always been an excellent proving ground for a number of car and bike manufacturers. The extreme terrain helps brand’s understand the flaws in their machines and also help them develop tougher vehicles. Mahindra is also testing the XUV.e9 to make the electric car tougher and ready for any terrain in the country.
