Mahindra had revealed some time back that it planned to make a major announcement on its new range of ‘Born Electric’ SUVs on August 15, 2022. The carmaker has now shared a teaser previewing five new electric SUVs that will make their debut on said date. Mahindra had previously said that it planned to have up to 5 electric SUVs on sale in the country by 2027 four of which would be from the born electric range. Mahindra has however said that it will debut the new XUV400 EV in September meaning that one of the concept could be a design study for a future EV.
Mahindra previewed the concepts in profile with the first image likely previewing a compact SUV with sleek proportions and a flowing profile ending at the base of a sharply raked rear glass. The overall profile comes across as one belonging to a modern crossover.

The second concept likely previews a mid-size SUV with a more traditional SUV stance. Prominent design elements visible include a flattish and upright front, mildly tapering roofline and an upright tailgate. The third also seemingly previews a compact SUV but with a more upright roof and a lesser degree of taper at the rear pillar.

The fourth SUV previewed is a full-blown SUV-coupe with the roofline smoothly flowing from the a-pillar right to the trailing edge of the vehicle. A light element seems to sit where the tapered rear pillar meets the trailing edge of the SUV. The front meanwhile features an upright nose.
The fifth SUV in profile appears to be the sportiest of the lot with an even sleeker profile and a fastback like design. Compared to the other SUV-coupe concept, the nose is different – similar to the second and third concepts while the roof line too is much flatter.

Mahindra has shared few details on its new ‘born electric’ range of SUVs though the company has entered into a partnering agreement with global auto giants Volkswagen to study the use of its MEB electric platform components in its range of SUVs. The company previously said the partnership was moving forward as planned so we could expect more details on that to also be confirmed on the date of the SUV’s debut.
