Mahindra XUV700 EV digital concept looks production-ready
A digital automotive artist has conceptualized an all-electric or EV version of the wildly popular Mahindra XUV700. Demand for the XUV700 is such that waiting times for the premium mid-size SUV extend into 2024 in some cities for some variants. The ultra-modern features and technology have attracted a ton of new buyers, making it the model to beat in the segment. We’ll have to wait to be sure that Mahindra actually plans to offer the electrified version of the SUV soon. Until then, let’s feast our eyes on this digital version.

Mahindra XUV700 Electric EV
The concept was rendered by Richtorque. The front fascia of the massive SUV remains identical to the IC-powered version, but there are subtle changes to remind the viewer of its green credentials. This includes a blacked-out sealed grille area because it doesn’t require air, blue accents under the bumper that symbolize the electric powertrain, a chrome plaque with the new Mahindra logo in the center, a pointed splitter with a black protection at the bottom to accentuate the SUV character with a touch of blue tint. From the front, you can see the blue stitching on the head restraints of the front seats bearing the inscription “EV”. The large panoramic sunroof makes an appearance even with the front view depicting its massive size. All in all, one could easily see something like this coming to the production line.
