INGLO EV platform for Mahindra electric SUVs
INGLO is a new EV platform developed by Mahindra. INGLO offers class-leading safety standards, exhilarating performance, excellent range and efficiency, exemplary driving dynamics, versatility, and an intelligent human-machine interface.
It is also capable of delivering a multi-sensorial driving experience with a futuristic, augmented reality-enabled heads-up display, edge-to-edge screen, 5G network capability, and Over-The-Air updates that will keep the EVs as good as new.
The INGLO platform is an optimised architecture that gives rise to modular and scalable design. It will allow Mahindra to create EVs as per consumer desires and lifestyles.
All the EVs under the new platform will follow a common LFP battery pack design. The SUVs under this platform will come with a battery capacity ranging from 60-80 kWh and capable of 175 kW fast-charge and charging up to 80% in less than 30 minutes.
The new platform supports both rear-wheel and all-wheel drive. The rear-wheel drive can offer 170-210 kW power, and the all-wheel drive can offer 250-290 kW power.
The powertrain is optimised to offer a class-leading range, with the added advantage of an intelligent electronic brake system that offers best-in-class recuperation potential.
All the new electric SUVs are designed to meet the highest vehicle safety norms. The e-SUVs will come with a structural cage around the passenger cabin specially designed for reduced passenger injury. The new e-SUVs are tested at the world’s largest battery development and testing centre.
The INGLO platform comes with 5 Radars-1 Vision ADAS architecture that can support up to L2+ autonomy.
The platform is also capable of leveraging the cloud seamlessly by implementing an embedded 5G network capability and keeps vehicles as good as new through Over the Air updates (SOTA + FOTA).
Dr. Anish Shah, Managing Director & CEO, Mahindra Group, said, “We are proud and delighted to showcase our Born Electric vision. It provides a strategic direction that is in line with our core philosophy of ‘Rise’ – to be an organisation that will be counted among the best in the world and at the same time rise for our planet to fight against climate change. Mahindra will offer customers future-ready technology, head-turning design, world-class products, and the benefits of global partnerships. By 2027, we expect that a quarter of the SUVs we sell will be electric.”
Rajesh Jejurikar, Executive Director – Auto and Farm Sectors, Mahindra & Mahindra, said, “Our vision of Born Electric is underpinned by the future-ready INGLO platform, two new exciting brands, and the Heartcore design philosophy. The five electric SUVs provide a powerful glimpse of our strategic direction and hews to the Mahindra attitude of a racing spirit and the attitude of adventure. We aim to not only electrify the roads but also the hearts and minds of SUV aficionados in India and around the world.”
