Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Currently working on the left-hand-drive version.

According to Autocar Professional, the Mahindra TUV300 (codenamed U301) will be exported to markets across the globe in about a year from now.

At the unveiling, Mahindra said that it is working on a left-hand drive version for the mini SUV. New petrol engine options that also meet strict emission norms of overseas markets, are nearing their launch, for this application.

Mahindra’s main export markets are Sri Lanka, South Africa, Chile, Nepal, Tunisia, and Australia.

The Mahindra TUV300’s design is inspired by a “battle tank”, which explains the boxy proportions of the sketches (as well as the test mules). Mahindra has also sought help from Italian design house Pininfarina (a company they’ve reportedly been trying to acquire) for the design of the TUV300, which is based on a new ladder-frame platform.

The Mahindra TUV300 will launch in India in the middle of September. It will be sold alongside the Mahindra Bolero, as the company dismissed reports that the TUV300 would succeed the hot-selling utility vehicle.
