New Mahindra Inglo Platform for Electric SUVs, Launch Date, Battery Details

The recently revealed Mahindra electric SUV lineup is built on a fresh platform known as INGLO. This designation symbolizes the manufacturer’s origins and ambitions, with “IN” standing for India and “GLO” representing Global.

The Modular Design

Modular Design of Inglo

​The INGLO platform is versatile enough to support models of varying sizes across different segments. It exhibits scalability in terms of wheelbase, length, and width, enabling it to underpin a range of vehicles, from the 4.7-meter-long XUV e8 to the 4.3-meter-long BE 05 and the nearly 5-meter-long BE 09.

​Similar t​o many electric vehicle platforms, it features a flat floor, except for XUV-based models that also have internal combustion engine (ICE) counterparts. The flat floor design allows for increased cabin space, flexible seating configurations, and a frunk (front luggage space instead of an engine).

Details of Battery Pack

Inglo Battery

The INGLO platform accommodates battery packs with two different capacities: 60kWh and 80kWh. The battery pack design is shared among various Mahindra EVs and employs two distinct cell architectures – ‘Blade’ for the larger battery and ‘Prismatic’ for the smaller battery pack.

These batteries support fast charging, with a capability of up to 175kW, enabling an 80% charge in less than 30 minutes. The 80kWh battery offers a WLTP-rated range of 450km. The electrical architecture of INGLO-based EVs also features Vehicle-to-Load (V2L) functionality. This allows users to utilize the energy stored in the car’s battery pack to power other electronic devices such as household appliances and gadgets.
