Mahindra XUV Aero SUV

The Mahindra XUV Aero Concept is reported to be the most expensive design study done by the carmaker that will be used for Mahindra’s flagship product in future.

Mahindra XUV Aero Coupe SUV concept has been shown at the 2017 Automobile Barcelona. The Pune-based carmaker has also displayed the new Mahindra Scorpio Pik-Up, LHD Euro-spec Mahindra KUV100 and Mahindra XUV500 special edition. First previewed at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, the XUV Aero SUV will become Mahindra & Mahindra’s flagship product. With its futuristic design and styling, the coupe crossover turned quite a few heads and considering the good response Mahindra is considering its production version in the near future.

Previous year during a conversation, Pawan Goenka, Executive Director, M&M said that the company has already done initial engineering operations for the SUV, and is now digging into its business viability. If the carmaker observes sustainable market demand and growth, it might push the XUV Aero for production. However, the carmaker is of the opinion that the Indian market is still not in favour for the high-end premium products developed by local players.

The design team of 45 members is guided by Ramkripa Anathan with inputs from Pininfarina that was acquired by the Indian automobile giant – Mahindra – in December 2015. Commenting on the XUV Aero concept, Mr. Pravin Shah, president and chief executive, automotive business at Mahindra, said, the Mahindra XUV Aero concept will “reflect bold design” and “come with all the futuristic connected technology”.

In terms of design and styling, new Mahindra SUV looks futuristic and more contemporary than the existing Mahindra products.

        Kindly do not forget to induce the 2 to 4 wheel drive optional gear in all versions and duely try to up the displacement of the product. You can infuse more power and cost to peer the bmw x6 which comes at 1.5 crore

    Very nice design – Team mahindra

    U must start Xuv aero production and im sure market will respond u positively as with passing maturity of product in market people want:
    (moreover creta/dustor they both r 5 seaters only and they have good growing market )

    extra styling , different body type and importantly torque with some compromise of loosing 2 child seats in the rear end row.

    Keep it 5 seater with refoldable central electronic console to have chauffeur driven experience as well.
