Written by Nizam Shaikh

Mahindra is planning to launch the XUV.e8, an all-electric SUV based on the brand’s born electric INGLO platform. While Mahindra did officially reveal the exterior concept of XUV.e8, the interiors of the EV are still under wraps. However, according to a media report, the design patents of the dashboard of the XUV.e8 reveal its screens.

Mahindra XUV.e8 – Dashboard Patents

Patent images on the internet reveal that the Mahindra XUV.e8 will come with three screens on its dashboard. All three display’s appear to be similar in size and are housed in a single case with a singe glass. The screens appear to be the extension of the dual screen setup from the Mahindra XUV700. However, the display spans on much of the width of the dashboard. Two central air-conditioning vents are positioned under the screen while two AC vents flank the dashboard.

In addition to this, there could be a storage spot behind the passenger side screen. How does the brand manage to package to frontal airbag is still a question to us. Patents also reveal a two-spoke steering wheel. The steering wheel appears to be squircle in shape with flat-top and bottom and a centre position marker similar to what we see in high-end sports cars. The horn pad appears quite sleek, and the steering controls appear to be touch sensitive with two or four physical toggle switches.

Mahindra XUV.e8 – Size and Powertrain

The Mahindra XUV.e8 is likely to be around 4,740mm in length, 1,900mm in width and 1,760mm in height. The electric SUV is also likely to come with a wheelbase of 2,762mm. Which means the electric SUV will be longer, taller and wider than the XUV700 and is also likely to come with a three-row seating. The XUV.e8 is also likely to come with an 80 kWh battery pack and power outputs ar likely to be in the range of 230 Hp to 350 Hp along with a four-wheel-drivetrain. Expect the Mahindra XUV.e8 to launch by the end of 2024.
