In BII, we have found a like-minded long-term partner who is committed to combating the climate emergency.

Rajesh Jejurikar, Executive Director of Auto and Farm Sectors at Mahindra and Mahindra, said, “Mahindra has very exciting plans to be a leader in the electric SUV space. We would share our vision that includes our comprehensive product technology, and platform strategy at the UK event on August 15, followed by a reveal of the electric XUV400 in September." Jejurikar also said that the carmaker aims to have at least two to three SUVs among 10 to be electric by 2027.

Mahindra has already teased its upcoming electric SUV which will be unveiled next month. While the automaker has not revealed the name of the upcoming car that has been teased online, it is believed that it is the premium SUV XUV900. Expect the production model to hit the market sometime in 2023 or 2024.

Earlier, the automaker had teased its range of electric SUVs. The first to come out of the Mahindra's stable would be the XUV400, which would compete with rivals like Tata Nexon EV, MG ZS EV and Hyundai Kona EV upon launch. The all-electric iteration of XUV300 will arrive as part of the automaker's committed seven electric SUV fleet under the Born Electric range.
