From what can be made out from the teaser video, the ‘Born Electric’ UI will support multiple applications, navigation, music and mobile connectivity including Bluetooth. The UI also features two separate temperature controls on either side which can lead to the assumption that these electric SUVs will feature dual-zone climate control. The translucent graphic of the vehicle reveals a boxy and muscular body style and a progressive battery charge status graphic has also been teased.

The MADE programme IS being led by Mahindra Chief Designer, Pratap Bose. In total, 5 SUVs are expected to be unveiled on August 15 out of which the electric counterpart of the XUV 300, likely to be called the XUV 400, is expected to be launched in India first.
