The electric XUV 300 might come in two variants: long range and short range. The short range variant will mainly be suited for personal city usage, however, a range extender will also be on offer, if necessary.
In terms of features and equipment, the electric SUV will be very similar to the standard XUV 300. It is also expected to come with features such as a touchscreen infotainment system, reverse parking sensors/camera, sunroof, seven airbags, ABS with EBD and a lot more.
The Mahindra XUV 300 itself is based on the Ssangyong Tivoli platform. The XUV 300 will be launched in the Indian market in February this year. It is expected to feature a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine. The diesel unit is the same as seen on Mahindra's Marazzo MPV offering.

The all-electric XUV 300 will be the fourth EV from the brand, after the E2O, e-Verito and the eKUV100. The electric SUV is expected to be priced below the Rs 20 lakh price range. The standard XUV 300 once launched, rivals the likes of the Ford EcoSport, Hyundai Creta and the Tata Nexon.
