Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. (M&M) has issued a recall of a total of 1.1 lakh XUV700 and XUV400 SUVs due to the potential risk of an engine bay wiring loom being cut by an abrasion. The company has also announced that these vehicles will be subjected to a proactive inspection. The manufacturer made this announcement through an exchange filing. According to the carmaker, all impacted customers will receive a free inspection, followed by necessary repair services. A total of 1,08,306 units of the Mahindra XU700 SUV, produced between June 8, 2021, and June 28, 2023, and 3,560 units of the XUV400 e-SUV, manufactured between February 16, 2023, and June 5, 2023, have been affected by the recall.

Mahindra recently hosted its Futurescape event in Cape Town, South Africa, where it displayed its new line of tractors, the highly anticipated fully-electric Thar.e, and the Global Pik Up (pickup truck) built on the Scorpio-N platform. The homegrown car manufacturer also unveiled an exciting new logo for its future BE (Born Electric) line of electric SUVs.

Mahindra Thar.e

The Mahindra Thar.e is a revolutionary SUV, which uses modular parts, many of which can be changed and modified. Theoretically, by swapping out a few parts, the serious off-roader can be transformed into an SUV, which is better suited for the road. Even though it has a concept car-like appearance, it comes with some features that distinguish it as an SUV belonging to the Thar family, for instance, a vertically slatted snout that resembles the classic Thar grille, headlights with LED DRLs, and other design elements. The SUV is built on the INGLO platform, which was launched last year but has been modified for the Thar.e.

Mahindra Thar E Concept

The EV has angular geometric body panels, which look futuristic and are suitable for off-road driving. The SUV has a five-door body, big off-road wheels, short overhangs, and large wheel wells. The interior has straight lines, a clean layout, and a neatly placed display, which can be rotated.

Mahindra has used 50 recycled PET and other recycled plastics in the construction of the EV. This is in line with the Vision Thar, a contemporary take on the classic SUV. Mahindra claims that although work is still being done on the final product, the wheelbase will range from 2,775mm to 2,975mm. The Thar.e will feature a front overhang of 640 to 680mm, a rear overhang of 640 to 740mm, and a ground clearance of between 250 and 300mm. Although the Thar.e's powertrain specifications have not been disclosed, it will sport a dual-motor system with two identical motors.

Mahindra Global Vision Pik Up

Apart from the brand-new Thar.e, the firm also debuted the Global Vision Pik Up designed for the ASEAN, Australia, India, South Africa, and South and Central American markets. A 2.2-litre MHawk turbo diesel engine, with 170bhp of maximum power and 400Nm of peak torque, will power it. Both a 6-speed torque converter automatic transmission and a 6-speed manual transmission will be available as options. Additionally, a 4x4 system with a low-range transmission and terrain response options will be offered for the vehicle.

The new Pik Up will feature Zip, Zap, Zoom, and custom drive modes. Furthermore, it will also have features like single-pane sunroofs, semi-automatic parking, and 5G connectivity. In terms of safety, it will get Level-2 ADAS, Trailer Sway Mitigation, All-Around Airbag Protection, Drowsy Driver Detection, and other safety systems.
