The Thar EV prototype from Mahindra will be unveiled on August 15 in South Africa. Before the international premiere, the automaker revealed a teaser for the upcoming electric version of the lifestyle SUV. The EV will be displayed to the masses along with the 'Global Pik Up Vision' concept. However, the manufacturer has not yet provided any specifics regarding the car. The short video preview suggests some potential features of the electric Thar. The "Born Electric" emblem indicates that the concept and future production model will be built on the company's new, exclusive EV platform. As the new concept will be uncovered this coming Independence Day, let's see the potential features or specs it might come equipped with.
Mahindra Thar.e Concept: Key Highlights
The latest teaser for this concept displays a futuristic design. The front of the electric vehicle showcases neat horizontal lines and a rectangular grille that has been blocked off. On either side of the grille are squarish LED headlights. The LED taillights have a similar look to them. The XUV400 is the only electric Mahindra SUV currently offered in India. However, the manufacturer is also working on numerous brand-new EVs, such as the BE.05, BE.07, and others.
The Thar EV, as previously reported, will likely be built employing an exclusively electric vehicle architecture, and it may even use two electric motors (one on each axle) to give all-wheel drive. More details on the electric version of the Thar will be disclosed at the international premiere, which is slated for August 15, 2023, in Cape Town, South Africa.
Mahindra Scorpio N Pickup Truck
Along with the Thar EV prototype, Mahindra will also reveal a concept pickup truck based on the Scorpio N. The forthcoming pickup truck can be compared to the Scorpio N due to similarities in its front grille and back design. The deck lid and LED tail lamps—the design's focal points—are highlighted in a peek of the rear profile, and the grille sports the company's twin-peaks logo. The teaser also displays the car's big tyres and alloy wheel style.
Reportedly, the production-spec model of the pickup truck is expected to make its entry into our market by 2025. When launched in India, the vehicle will give tough competition to models such as the Isuzu V-Cross and the Toyota Hilux.
