The Auto Expo 2018 saw Mahindra coming in with all guns blazing! The automaker showcased some new products as well as some future ones. One of the main ones that stood out for us was the e2o Plus NXT. In concept form, it showcases the direction Mahindra plans to take with its original electric car with regard to their future line-up.
The e20 NXT that was showcased at the expo was painted in a shade of white both on the inside and outside. Although the overall silhouette for the car stays the same, there are quite a few new design elements to bring the car in line with the new Mahindra design language. Chief among these is the grille or should we say lack of it as what you get instead is a black plastic piece with a small Mahindra grille and blue back lighting. The head lamps are double barrel and are the typical units seen on other Mahindra concept cars.
The wheels appear to be 14-inch units with diamond cut wheels, but for the production model, we believe that this car will get smaller wheels but with the same design. The tail lamps are vertical LED units while dominating the look of the rear is a large piece of grey plastic with the Mahindra badging. The dimensions, layout and elements of the cabin remain untouched but adding in to the mix is a massive touchscreen display as well as a full digital instrument cluster which we believe will also have a HD colour display in the production spec car.
There is no word on powertrain but we know this much that this e2o NXT will move to the Mahindra Electric Scalable Modular Architecture. This means it will join a family of cars across various sizes, shapes and capacities.
We can expect some news on the e2o NXT sometime later this year with production possibly beginning sometime in 2020.
