It has been about one year since Mahindra unveiled its future Electric Vehicle plans. These plans include a new sub-brand, BE ( Born Electric ), and a few EVs under Mahindra’s name as well. And one of the Mahindra’s upcoming EVs has been spied on, the Mahindra XUV e8 or the 2024 XUV800.
Mahindra XUV e8 is basically an electrified version of the Mega-popular Mahindra XUV 700. As we already know, the XUV 700 is a powerhouse both in terms of Features and Power, but the XUV e8 is going to be even more, just with an Electric battery.
One of our beloved carversal Pros (@himanshu_bisht0) sent us a spy shot of a parked Mahindra XUV e8. This Mahindra XUV e8 was spied parked at a restaurant. It contains many huge and important details compared to its conceptual avatar. So, let us dive into them.
These spy shots of the upcoming Mahindra XUV e8 or the Electric XUV800 tell us a lot of stories. It helps us differentiate the XUV e8 from its ICE avatar, XUV 700, and we can clearly see that as it now looks closer to its production avatar.
First up, is the Front Design of the New Electric Mahindra. We can compare the front designs of both, the concept and this spied Mahindra XUV e8, and we can cleverly make out differences. This spied Mahindra XUV e8 gets a different nose. This differently designed nose consists of more angles and is also connected to the one over the other side. But, if you are wondering, why does it look so empty? Then, it is because the nose has been designed in a way that it could accommodate the LED DRLs and maybe the Head Lamps, too. It is just that this spied version doesn’t pack those DRLs or Head Lamps. Anyways, talking more about the nose’s design, it is more angular, as said, but it also contains a flipped C-shaped design at the corners compared to the XUV 700’s DRL design.
The second is the front Grille of the Electric 7 Seater Mahindra SUV. Even though the front grille is completely camouflaged, we can still make out that it could get a different grille design, which, by the way, would be no grille design at all. Yes, as we saw on its concept, and the XUV e8 being an EV after all, it is very evident that it could get a sealed packed Front grille design. And by looking at the spy shots, we can say that the XUV e8’s front stands more upright compared to its ICE version.
Next are the Alloys OF THE 2024 XUV e8. The Alloy design is different on the Mahindra XUV e8 when compared to the XUV700. They are more straightforward and contain a less complicated design compared to the XUV 700. Nowadays, as we notice on other Mahindra EVs’ spy shots that are being tested, they are getting a simple Alloy design with an odd number of slats. The same case is over here; this spied Mahindra XUV e8 also gets a 5-slat design on its Alloy wheels.
