Mahindra plans to introduce 7 all-new electric SUVs in India by 2030.


The headline figure here is the investment of Rs 12,000 crore into Mahindra Electric Automobile Limited (MEAL). MEAL is the new electric four-wheeler company of the Mahindra Group under which it plans to introduce its upcoming range of Born Electric SUVs. The investment will not only go into the development of the electric vehicles but also in unlocking production capacity to cater to model demand. Speaking of production capacity Mahindra has revealed that it plans to have an EV production capacity of 10,000 units per month by the end of the current financial year. This is to further be expanded to 18,000 units per month by the end of FY2026. The carmaker has said that its first Born Electric SUV is set to arrive in the last quarter of FY2025 (January to March 2025) with subsequent models to follow.

Mahidnra's upcoming EVs are expected to be sold under the BE and XUV.e branding.


The carmaker however said that it still expects a bulk of its sales to come from internal combustion vehicles going forward with the EV penetration still low in the passenger vehicle market.


“As of now, as we’ve said earlier, EVs will be 20-30 per cent of our SUV portfolio in the year 2027 which means that still 70 per cent of our portfolio will be ICE (internal combustion engines),”said Rajesh Jejurikar , Executive Director & CEO, Auto and Farm Sector, Mahindra and Mahindra.

He added that the segment (ICE) was still growing at a healthy rate and offered good financial returns to the company thus it made sense to stay involved. He said that the company would continue to have “a very aggressive ICE portfolio over the next 10 years.”

The company however did not rule out shifting focus to EVs should demand patterns change. Dr Anish Shah, MD and CEO, Mahindra Group said that the company would however continue to observe the EV market over the next three years. He said that if there was any substantial change in demand the company would take decisions to shift its portfolio focus accordingly.
