All-electric Mahindra Scorpio.e and Bolero.e in the works; Here’s what to expect 

The company confirmed its plans to electrify the Bolero and Scorpio at its investor presentation today, in response to Mahindra executive director and CEO (Auto and Farm Sector) Rajesh Jejurikar’s statement that “all ICE brands would be electrified over time.” Similar to their petrol-to-electric siblings, the XUV.e and Thar.e, the models will have the letter “.e” added to them. Although there isn’t much information available regarding the Mahindra Scorpio and Bolero EVs, it is uncertain that they will use a ladder-frame chassis because of the challenges involved in making a born-EV on that platform.

Furthermore, Mahindra unveiled the Thar.e concept in August, which featured a modified version of Mahindra’s INGLO (INdia GLObal) skateboard platform, codenamed P1. The platform is expected to have a wheelbase of between 2,775mm and 2,975mm and might be used on the all-electric Scorpio and Bolero. For comparison, the current-generation Bolero has a 2,680mm wheelbase, whilst the Scorpio N has 2,750mm between the wheels.


Just like Mahindra’s other EVs, the two new vehicles might have battery packs and motors. The Thar.e concept included a 109hp/135Nm front and a 286hp/535Nm rear engine, giving it AWD capability. The battery details were not disclosed at the time, but the brand had stated that the platform will most likely have a 60kWh or 80kWh pack, with the former providing around 325km of WLTP range and the latter covering 435-450km.

The Scorpio.e and Bolero.e launch dates are not revealed, however, Mahindra previously stated that seven new EVs will be released by 2030, and the Scorpio and Bolero electric vehicles may be included in that list.
