Mahindra to Launch Electric Versions of Bolero and Scorpio

Mahindra has reaffirmed its commitment to electrifying all its internal combustion engine (ICE) brands, including the Bolero and Scorpio. During a recent investor presentation, the company confirmed plans to introduce the Bolero.e and Scorpio.e, following in the footsteps of the XUV.e and Thar.e. However, these new electric models are unlikely to utilize a ladder-frame chassis due to the complexities of adapting such a platform for electric vehicles.

The Thar.e concept, revealed last August, featured a modified version of Mahindra’s INGLO (INdia GLObal) skateboard platform, codenamed P1. This platform is designed to accommodate wheelbases ranging from 2,775mm to 2,975mm. For comparison, the current Bolero has a 2,680mm wheelbase, while the Scorpio N’s wheelbase is 2,750mm. It is anticipated that this platform may be employed for the upcoming all-electric Scorpio and Bolero models.

As with Mahindra’s other electric vehicles, the Bolero.e and Scorpio.e are expected to share battery packs and motors. The Thar.e concept showcased a dual-motor setup, with a 109hp/135Nm front motor and a 286hp/535Nm rear motor, providing all-wheel-drive capabilities. While the battery specifications were not disclosed, it is speculated that the platform will support either a 60kWh or an 80kWh battery pack, offering approximately 325km and 435-450km of WLTP range, respectively.

The exact launch dates for the Scorpio.e and Bolero.e remain unknown. However, Mahindra has announced plans to introduce seven new electric vehicles by 2030, and these models are likely to be part of that lineup.

Next-Generation Mahindra Bolero Expected in 2026

In addition to its electric initiatives, Mahindra is preparing a complete overhaul of the Bolero diesel variant. The next-generation model will be built on a new ladder-frame architecture known as U171, which will support a range of new SUVs and pickup trucks. The first vehicle on this platform is expected to be the next-gen Bolero, anticipated to debut between 2026 and 2027. This platform is likely to underpin at least three SUVs, potentially boosting Mahindra’s annual volumes to approximately 150,000 units. As the pickup range transitions to this new platform, the volume potential could eventually double.
