To be safer than NMC-based cells, the innovative blade and prismatic cell architecture used a standard battery pack design equipped with LFP lithium-ion cells.
The SUV’s batteries range in capacity from 60 to 80 kWh, and they can be charged quickly at 175 kW for an 80 percent charge in under 30 minutes. According to Mahindra, the WLTP cycle would allow the 80kWh battery to provide a driving range of up to 450 km.
The platform features an all-wheel drive with an output of 395PS of power and rear-drive powertrains with up to 230–285PS. For the EVs built on this platform, Mahindra promises a 0-100km h speed of 5 to 6 seconds. According to the announcement, the front motor of the e-SUV provides 109 horsepower and 135 pound-feet of torque, while the rear motors will generate 286 horsepower and 560 pound-feet of torque. Mahindra also states that its sprint time from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour is between 5 and 6 seconds.
Dr. Anish Shah, managing director & CEO of Mahindra Group said, “Mahindra will offer customers future-ready technology, head-turning design, world-class products, and the benefits of global partnerships. By 2027, we expect that a quarter of the SUVs we sell will be electric.”
