    The upcoming Mahindra XUV.e8 will feature a three-screen setup and a new two-spoke steering wheel, as confirmed by the interior design patents that have surfaced online. Pre-production prototypes also showed that the interior shares some similarities with the XUV700. The XUV.e8 will be the first born-electric SUV based on the brand’s INGLO platform when it goes on sale by year-end.

    1. XUV.e8 is due for a late-2024 launch  
    2. Will have a battery pack of up to 80kWh
    3. Carries over XUV700’s silhouette, but is based on Mahindra’s INGLO platform

    Mahindra XUV.e8: interior patents

    The patent reveals that there will be three individual screens housed in a single casing spanning the dashboard’s entire width. It appears like an extension of the XUV700’s dual-screen setup with an additional passenger screen and is flanked by AC vents on either side. All three screens are expected to run on Mahindra’s Adrenox software.

    The new two-spoke, flat-bottomed steering wheel appears to have a glass-like finish on the boss and would likely have an illuminated logo, much like the newer Tata SUVs; the steering also sports four toggle switches. Also, the XUV.e8 will carry over some switchgear, such as the HVAC and the centre console controls, from the XUV700. This interior layout could be shared with its coupe-SUV derivative, the XUV.e9.

    Mahindra XUV.e8: what else do we know?

    Conceptually, the XUV.e8 will be quite similar to the XUV700, sharing a familiar profile and three rows of seats. It is 4,740mm long, 1,900mm wide and 1,760mm high, with a 2,762mm wheelbase, making it 45mm longer, 10mm wider and 5mm taller than the XUV700; its wheelbase will be just 7mm longer than the XUV700’s.

    Mahindra previously confirmed that the XUV.e8 will come with an all-wheel-drive system and battery pack of up to 80kWh. Power outputs could be anywhere from 230hp to upwards of 350hp.

    The production-spec XUV.e8 is expected to debut in the coming months before it goes on sale by the end of the year. It will face competition from the Harrier EV that’s due sometime in early 2025.
