The Rall-E concept is a more rugged iteration of the BE 05 electric SUV arriving around October 2025

At the Mahindra EV Fashion Festival, the carmaker has unveiled a new concept electric SUV called the BE Rall-E. Mahindra’s BE sub-brand will have only EVs in its lineup, starting with the BE 05 SUV launching around October 2025. The BE 05 is also the basis for the Rall-E, but it has been extensively modified for overlanding. 

Here’s all you need to know about the electric SUV: 

1: Jaw-dropping design 

The Rall-E looks cool indeed with its bright fluorescent green paintwork, multi-coloured graphics  and that pixellated splatter of green paint below the DRLs. Lower down, there’s a proper off-roading bumper with a skid plate and a bright-orange tow hook, flanked by large auxiliary lights not present on the BE 05 EV.   

2: EV equipped for overlanding 

Most of the Rall-E EV’s modifications are functional and would come in handy while off-roading. Modified front bumper and skid plate aside, the Rall-E also has steel wheels with chunky all-terrain tyres, a large roof rack for carrying spares and equipment, a higher ground clearance than the BE 05; and conventional outer rearview mirrors (the BE 05 concept has rearview cameras).

Based on the BE 05, the Rall-E SUV is built on the Mahindra INGLO platform that shares some components with Volkswagen’s MEB modular electric toolkit. This ground-up EV platform supports EV powertrains in both rear-wheel drive and dual-motor all-wheel-drive (AWD) configurations.   

4: Capability 

The dual-motor AWD, rugged hardware should allow the BE Rall-E to go off-road. Existing Mahindra models such as the Thar and Scorpio-N already get electronic aids such as hill descent control and brake-based differentials that can enhance the off-roading capability of EVs and ICE vehicles alike. 

5: Range 

The exact specs will be revealed closer to the SUV’s unveiling in 2025, but for now, we do know that the BE 05 will have long-range battery options with capacities of up to 80kWh, good for up to around 450km of range. The SUV will also have fast-charging capability of up to 175kW.

The BE Rall-E concept is likely only a showcase of the carmaker’s technology and won’t make it to production. Nevertheless, the BE 05 is destined for a launch in late 2025 as a Hyundai Creta-sized compact electric SUV.
