1.2 Electric Vehicle System
Electric vehicle operates differently compared to an internal combustion engine vehicles as it is powered by battery power pack. Car battery must be charged with electricity before driving it. As car is driven, stored energy in battery pack gradually decreases and if discharged completely to 0% then will not drive until battery pack is recharged. Charging time varies depending on state of charge in car and ambient conditions. Normal charge time is 9 hours.
An auxiliary 12V battery in car, enables to wake up car in case 'Vacation Mode' is activated in car at idle condition. Battery pack powers drive motor and car is equipped with regenerative electric braking and vacuum assisted hydraulic brakes.
Electric car is an eco-friendly vehicle that does not release any noxious emissions like carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide & nitrogen oxide.
Pay special attention to pedestrians. Because there is no engine noise, pedestrians may not know the vehicle is approaching, moving or about to move, and may step into the path of vehicle travel.
For preventing damage to the Li-ion battery pack:
- Do not expose to very high temperatures for longer duration.
- Do not use car battery for any other purpose, consult your dealer or manufacturer for help.
Make sure that the service disconnect switch is in pressed position when performing any part replacement or repairs.
The EV (Electric Vehicle) system uses a high voltage current. Failure to follow the proper handling instructions may cause serious injury or death.
An EV (Electric Vehicle) cannot be push started or tow-started. Attempting to do so may cause traction motor damage.
The EV (Electric Vehicle) system uses high voltage up to approximately DC 72 volt. The system can be hot during and after starting and when the vehicle is shut off. Be careful of both the high voltage and the high temperature. Obey the labels that are attached to the vehicle.
Never disassemble, remove or replace high-voltage parts and cables as well as their connectors. High voltage cables are colored orange.
Disassembling, removing or replacing those parts or cables can cause severe burns or electric shock that may result in serious injury or death. The vehicle high voltage system has no user serviceable parts. Take your vehicle to the Mahindra certified dealer for any necessary maintenance.
If you must work with the EV (Electric vehicle) system is turned on, keep hands, clothing, hair and tools away from moving fans and any other moving parts.
Keep smoking materials, flames and sparks away from the 12- volt and HV batteries.
Always check available energy for your required travel distance by checking 'state of charge' and also 'distance to empty'. Whenever charge level goes below 15%, the SOC bar starts blinking giving an indication to user to drive carefully to reach destination. If charge level drops below 10%, car will drive in 'POWER SAVE MODE' reducing car performance and automatically turns off air- conditioning.
Battery pack will get discharged when it is parked idle for long time. Hence activate 'Vacation Mode' via mobile application (if equipped) to optimize charge level and avoid deep discharge.
Vehicle uses a 72 volts battery system. Some of systems could be hot before & after their usage. Hence pay attention and follow warning labels located at places in vehicle. Never try to access, remove parts / cables / connectors which can cause shock or severe burns or result in serious injury. 72 voltage cables are colour coded in Orange & systems are not user serviceable. For any maintenance, contact your authorized service center.
- Make sure to turn off drive system before leaving vehicle.
- Engage parking brake prior to getting out of the vehicle.
- Do not allow untrained person to access EV system and apprise immediate responders in any events that this is an electric vehicle.
- Vehicle will not run with completely discharged battery. At low SOC avoid repeated acceleration resulting in more energy consumption that can be avoided by gradual acceleration and maintaining steady speed.
- Driving in down gradient, when accelerator pedal is released, regenerative brakes will provide some energy to recharge battery pack and simultaneously assists in deceleration of vehicle assisting in vehicle control.
- Brake should be applied to slow down or stop vehicle in drive.
- You may hear some sound and feel vibration in drive that are normal;
- Drive motor makes small sound during its operation, also will be higher in deceleration of vehicle.
- Brake vacuum pump makes sound during braking operation.
- Contactor makes sound when vehicle is switched on and authentication.
- In AC cooling, motor and condenser fan comes on during operation.
- In event of battery temperature is below 0°C or less, battery pack will not accept charge, hence park your car at warm climatic condition.
- In event of battery temperature is below -5°C, car will not drive, hence park at warm location.
- Performance of battery will decrease with time and usage. This does not indicate any defect in battery pack.
- Battery pack has limited life and when its charge holding capacity reaches below specific level, it may require an inspection from service persons and may need battery pack replacement.
- It is recommended and mandatory that during process of battery or vehicle / components disposal, owner should contact authorised dealer for guidance and information on recycling or proper disposal without causing any environmental pollution.
- During drive as the charge level drops below 20%, car will drive in 'E' (ECONOMY) mode limiting drive power. Further if charge level drops below 10%, car will drive in 'L' (LIMP HOME) mode with POWER SAVE MODE message on cluster. If heater or AC is ON, will get turned off.
- Driving in 'B' mode with high acceleration will result in more power consumption reducing your drive range
In event of accident:
- If your vehicle is drivable, pull your vehicle off the road, shift to Neutral (N), apply the parking brake and turn the EV (Electric Vehicle) system off.
- Check your vehicle to see if there are exposed high-voltage parts or cables. To avoid personal injury, never touch high- voltage wiring, connectors, and other high-voltage parts, such as E-BOX and B-BOX. An electric shock may occur if exposed electric wires are visible when viewed from inside or outside of your vehicle. Therefore, never touch ex-posed electric wires.
- If the vehicle receives a strong impact to the floor while driving, stop the vehicle in a safe location and check the floor. Leaks or damage to the Li-ion battery may result in a fire. If you discover them, contact emergency services immediately. Since the fluid leak may be lithium manganate from the Li-ion battery, never touch the fluid leak inside or outside the vehicle. If the fluid contacts your skin or eyes, wash it off immediately with a large amount of water and receive immediate medical attention to help avoid serious in-jury.
- If a fire occurs in the EV (Electric Vehicle), leave the vehicle as soon as possible. Only use a type ABC, BC or C fire extinguisher that is meant for use on electrical fires. Using water or the incorrect fire extinguisher can result in serious injury or death from electrical shock.
- If your vehicle needs to be towed, do it with the front wheels raised. If the front wheels are on the ground when towing, the traction motor may generate electricity. This may damage the components of the EV (Electric Vehicle) system and cause a fire.
- In the event of an accident that requires body repair and painting, the vehicle should be delivered to a Mahindra certified dealer to have the Li-ion battery pack and high voltage parts such as the B-BOX, E-BOX, including the wiring harness, removed prior to painting. Li-ion battery packs exposed to heat in the paint booth will experience capacity loss. Damaged Li-ion battery packs may also pose safety risks to untrained mechanics and repair personnel.
If vehicle cannot be assessed for extent of damage, do not touch vehicle and contact nearest Authorized service center or customer care executive for support.
Don't carry out any welding work on vehicle outside Mahindra certified dealer.

2.3 Fuses & Relays
A fuse is the most common electric protection device. A fuse is placed in an electrical circuit, so that when current flow exceeds the rating of the fuse it blows off.
The element in the fuse melts, opening the circuit and preventing other components of the circuit from being damaged by the over current. The size of the metal fuse element determines the rating. Once a fuse blows off, it must be replaced with a new one.
Switch the ignition and all electrical equipment OFF before touching or attempting to change a fuse.
Fit replacement fuse with the same rating as the one you have removed.
You can identify a blown fuse by a break in the filament. All fuses except high current fuses are a push fit. A fuse puller should be used to remove the fuse from its position.
Passenger Compartment Fuse Box
Fully open the co-driver door and slide the seat backwards. The main central fuse box is located on the left side of the instrument panel. Price out the securing cover to access the fuse box.
Never touch fuses with bare hands. Always use fuse puller located in instrument panel fuse box cover to remove and refit the fuses.

2.4 Flat Tire
In case of a flat tyre during driving, reduce your speed gradually, keeping a straight line. Move cautiously off the road to a safe place well away from traffic. Park on a level spot with firm ground. Stop the vehicle and turn ON your hazard warning flashers.
Firmly apply the parking brake. Have everyone come out of the vehicle on the side away from traffic.
Never stop your vehicle in a traffic lane to change a tire. You could be hit by an oncoming vehicle. Keep driving until you reach a safe location.
Lifting a vehicle to change a tire or perform maintenance is very dangerous if you do not have the requisite tools, safety equipment and training. The jack provided along with the vehicle is to be used only for changing a spare tire. It is never to be used to perform any other maintenance or repair on the vehicle.
Never place any part of your body under any portion of the vehicle when it is supported only by the jack. You could be crushed by the vehicle if it falls off a jack. Keep by-standers away from the vehicle.
Find level, solid ground that is clear of oncoming traffic. If you cannot find a safe place to stop, it is better to drive on a flat tire and damage the rim than it is to risk being hit by oncoming traffic.
The following sections outline the procedure for changing a flat tire;
2.4.1 Tool Kit
The jack is located in the boot to the left held in place by a velcro strip. The jack extension is also attached to the jack.
The wheel brace (spanner) is located in the boot to the right held in place by snap fitting clips.
The warning triangle is in a pouch in the boot.
2.4.2 Spare Wheel Removal
Spare wheel is located under the boot floor at the rear end of the vehicle. It is held in place by a winch nut underneath the luggage compartment floor carpet.
- Lift the carpet and remove the plug cover
- Rotate the securing winch nut anti-clockwise using the wheel spanner to lower the spare wheel.
- Remove the securing spare wheel hub bracket from the spare wheel.
- Pull the spare wheel from under the vehicle.
Snap-fit Wheel Cover Removal (if equipped)
Wrap the tip of a screw driver with cloth, insert it near the lugs of the wheel cover and pry the cover away from the wheel.
Do not try to pry off the wheel cover by hand alone. Take due care in handling the wheel cover to avoid unexpected personal injury.
2.4.3 Wheel Nut Loosening
Always loosen the wheel nuts before raising the vehicle. Turn the wheel nuts counter clockwise to loosen. To get maximum leverage, fit the spanner to the nut so that the handle is on the left side. Grab the spanner near the end of the handle and push down on the handle. Be careful that the spanner does not slip off the nut. Do not remove the nuts, but loosen them by one or two turns.
Do not apply force with your legs (or stand) on the wheel spanner while tightening the wheel nuts.
|1||Flat Tyre||2||Chock Blocks|
Block the wheel diagonally opposite the flat tyre to keep the vehicle from rolling when it is jacked up. When blocking the wheel, place a wheel block in front of one of the front wheels or behind one of the rear wheels.
Locate the jack points in the front or rear as needed. They can be identified by a slot along the skirt on both sides of the vehicle which is used to fit the jack precisely.
Position the jack at the correct jacking point. Make sure the jack is positioned on a level and solid place. Ensure no one is in the vehicle.
To raise the vehicle, insert the jack handle end along with the extension into the jack and turn it clockwise with the jack handle. As the jack touches the vehicle and begins to lift, check that it is properly positioned. Raise it high enough so that the spare tire can be installed. Remember you will need more ground clearance when putting on the spare tire than when removing the flat tire.
Make sure to set the jack properly in the jacking point. Raising the vehicle with improperly positioned jack will damage the underbody of vehicle or may allow the vehicle to fall off the jack and cause personal injury.
- Use the jack only for lifting your vehicle during wheel changing
- Do not raise the jack with someone in the vehicle
- When raising the vehicle, do not place any objects on top of or underneath the jack
- Raise the vehicle only high enough to remove and change the wheel
- Follow jacking instructions
- Do not start the vehicle while it is supported by the jack
Never get under the vehicle when the vehicle is supported by the jack alone.
Remove the wheel nuts. Lift the flat tire straight off and place it aside. Roll the spare wheel into position and align the holes in the wheel with the bolts. Lift up the wheel and get at least the top bolt started through its hole. Wiggle the wheel and press it back over the other bolts.
Before putting on the wheels, remove any corrosion on the mounting surfaces with a wire brush or such. Installation of wheels without good metal to metal contact at the mounting surface can cause wheel nuts to loosen and eventually cause a wheel to come off while driving.
Reinstall the wheel nuts with the tapered end inward and tighten by hand. Press the wheel inward and tighten the wheel nuts further.
Never use oil or grease on the bolts or nuts. Doing so may lead to over tightening the nuts, wheel nut spanner slip, damage the bolts and also may cause personal injuries. Also, nuts may loosen and the wheels may fall off, which could cause a serious accident. If there is oil or grease on any bolt or nut, clean before installing wheel nuts.
Lower the vehicle completely and tighten the wheel nuts using the wheel nut spanner. Turn the jack extension counter clockwise using the wheel nut spanner to lower the vehicle, making sure the handle remains firmly fit onto the jack handle extension. Do not use other tools or any additional leverage other than your hands, such as a hammer, pipe or your foot. Make sure the spanner is securely engaged over the nut. Tighten each nut a little at a time in the diagonally opposite order. Repeat the process until all the nuts are tight.
Improperly or loosely tightened wheel nuts are dangerous. The wheel could wobble or come off. This could result in loss of vehicle control and cause a serious accident. Always make sure all the wheel nuts are properly/securely tightened to the specified torque.
If you have rotated , repaired , changed your tires or changed the wheel rims, check the wheel nuts are still tight (to the reqd. torque) after driving about 1000 Kms.
Re-install the Snap-fit Wheel Cover (if equipped)
Put the wheel cover into position aligning the nozzle on the wheel to the nozzle clearance on the wheel cover. Tap it firmly on the sides with your hand to snap it into place.
Restore the tools (jack, wheel spanner, etc.,) in their storage locations.
Align the spare wheel to the centre hub of the wheel well. Firmly tighten the securing plug and put the floor carpet back.
Double check to ensure the tyre is snug against the rear floor of the vehicle.
Check the air pressure on the spare tire and inflate/adjust if necessary. Have the flat tire repaired at the earliest and replace the same with the spare tire.
It is recommended to fix the flat tire at the nearest tire shop and swap the spare wheel back. The wheel balance and alignment differ from wheel to wheel. This may lead to steering and braking issues.

5 SEATS AND SEAT BELTS
5.1 Driver Seat
5.1.1 Sitting in Correct Position
Follow the tips below for a comfortable and safe journey;
- Sit in an upright position with the base of your spine pressed against the seat back
- The driver and front passenger seat head restraint has 5 positions. Adjust it as close as possible to the above specified position, with the top of the head restraint even with the top of your head
- Maintain sufficient distance between yourself and the steering wheel. Maintain at least a ten inch (10") distance from the centre of the steering wheel to your chest
- The top curve of the steering wheel should align with your chin for ideal road visibility
- Adjust your seat and seat back angle such that your wrists rest on the steering wheel
- Ensure your legs are in bent position while fully depressing the accelerator pedal
The seat should be adjusted while still maintaining control of the foot pedals, steering wheel and your view of the instrument panel controls.
Never adjust the driver's seat while the vehicle is in motion. The seat may unexpectedly move and cause the driver to unintentionally operate the accelerator or brake, or turn the steering wheel, causing loss of control of the vehicle, an accident or serious personal injury. Adjust the driver's seat only when the vehicle is not in motion.
Never put objects under the seats. They may interfere with the seat-lock mechanism or unexpectedly activate the seat position adjusting lever, causing the seat to suddenly move, resulting in loss of control of the vehicle, an accident or serious personal injury.
While adjusting the seat, do not put your hands under the seat or near the moving parts. This may lead to injuries.
5.1.2 Front Seat Slide
Move the seat forward or backward by lifting the adjustment lever located under the seat front and release once the desired position is reached.
While adjusting the seat, make sure the latch engages fully and the seat is locked firmly in the desired position. An unlocked seat may move in a sudden stop or collision, causing injury to the person in that seat. Push and pull on the seat to be sure it is locked.
5.1.3 Front Seat Recline
To adjust the seat back, lift the lever located on the outboard side of the seat, lean back, and release the lever at the desired position. To return the seat back, lift the lever, lean forward, and release the lever.
The seat belts provide maximum protection in a frontal or rear collision when the occupants are sitting up straight and well back in the seats. If you are reclined, the lap belt may slide past your hips and apply restraint forces directly to the abdomen, or the shoulder strap may contact your neck. The more the seat is reclined, the greater the risk of serious injury.
When returning the rear-reclined seat back to its upright position, make sure you support seat back while operating the lever.
5.2 Head Restraint
5.2.1 Adjustable Head Restraint
The head restraint comprises of the padded portion which contacts your head and is inserted/locked in receptacles on the top of the seat back.
Your vehicle seats are equipped with head restraints which are vertically adjustable. The purpose of these head restraints is to help limit head motion in the event of rear collision.
Always align top of the head restraint with the top of your head or as close to it as possible. To raise the head restraint, press the lock knob and pull the restraint up. To lower the head restraint, press the lock knob and push the head restraint down.
5.2.2 Removing Seat Head Restraint
The head restraint can be pulled out completely by depressing the locking button while pulling the restraint out.
5.2.3 Installing Seat Head Restraint
Align the head restraint shafts over the holes on the seat top and push the restraint straight down till you hear the lock click.
Keep the seat back as upright as possible so the headrest is behind, not beneath, and almost touching your head.
Never drive with the head restraints not properly adjusted, head restraints removed or inserted in a flipped condition. With no support behind your head, your neck could be seriously injured in a collision.
Head restraints are provided for the front row and second row outboard occupants.
5.3 Second Row Seats
Loading luggage on the seats is dangerous. The luggage can become a projectile that could hit and injure passengers in a sudden stop or collision. Luggage should always be kept on the floor.
To avoid serious injury, do not sit on or place objects on a foldedseat back while the vehicle is moving.
5.4 General Warnings and Instructions- Seat Belts
At least once each month, inspect the seat belt webbing for any cuts, tears, or other signs of wear (such as fraying along the edges). Also inspect the anchors, retractors, and buckles to be sure they are tight and operational.
- All occupants, including the driver, should always wear their seat belt no matter how short the trip in order to minimize the risk of severe injury in the event of a crash. In an accident, an un-belted passenger becomes a projectile, and can cause serious injury to himself or another passenger.
- In a rollover crash, an un-belted person is significantly more likely prone to Injury than a person wearing a seat belt
- In order to be properly buckled, you must always sit up straight and keep your feet on the floor in front of you. The lap part must be worn low and tight across your hips, just touching the top of your thighs. While fastening the seat belt, the shoulder strap of the seat belt must pass over your chest and top of your shoulder. It must never touch your neck, face, the side of your shoulder, arm, or pass under your arm. The belt must always be flat against your body and not twisted in any way. Nothing, such as an arm rest, a pocketbook, or any external objects should be between you and the seat belt. Improper wearing of a seat belt will reduce the protection in an accident.
- Seat belts should be adjusted as tightly as possible, consistent with comfort to properly secure the wearer in the seat.
- The seat belts provided for your vehicle are designed for people of adult size, must be properly used and maintained.
- For usage of adult seatbelt to secure children refer to section on manual for child seat positions and use a child restraint systems
- Passengers should not move out of or change seats while the vehicle is moving. A passenger who is not wearing a seat belt can be thrown against the inside of the vehicle, against other occupants, or out of the vehicle during a crash or emergency stop
- Do not use any accessories on seat belts or modify in any way the seat belt system. Devices claiming to improve occupant comfort or reposition the seat belt can reduce the protection provided by the seat belt and increase the chance of serious injury in a crash
- An accident or emergency stop, can damage your seat belt system, even if the accident is “minor”. Please have your Authorized Mahindra Dealer inspect the seat belt system after an accident
- Please be aware that any unsecured item in your vehicle, such as your pet, unsecured child restraint system, a laptop or mobile phones, can become a projectile in the event of an accident or sudden stop, causing injuries to occupants in the vehicle
Never use a damaged seat belt system. A damaged seat belt will not provide protection in an accident, resulting in serious injury.
- Seat belt systems can be prone to abuse. They are not indestructible. They must be handled with care to avoid damage
- Keep the belts clean and dry. Belt retraction may become difficult if the belts and webbing are soiled. If they need cleaning, use a mild soap solution or lukewarm water. Never use bleach dye, or abrasive cleaners. These chemicals will severely weaken the belts
- Retractors in 3-point type seat belts retract the seat belts when not in use. The inertia lock and coil spring allow the belts to remain comfortable on users during normal driving. During accidents or abrupt stops, inertia locks restrict the sudden forward movement of the wearer
Persons with serious medical conditions should also wear a seat belt. Consult your doctor for specific recommendations before travel.
Pregnant women must also wear seat belts. Consult your doctor for specific recommendations.
The lap belt should be worn snugly and as low as possible over the hips. The shoulder belt should be worn across your shoulder, but never across the stomach area. When worn properly, the seat belt will protect both the mother and the foetus in an accident or emergency stop.
A pregnant woman should never wear the seat belt across the stomach area. This could lead to serious injuries to the foetus and/or the pregnant mother.
Never wear twisted seat belts. Excessive forces will be transferred from the belt to the wearer, in a collision, resulting in serious personal injury.
Each seat belt is meant for use by one person only. Using one seat belt for more than one person at a time is dangerous. The seat belt will not be able to spread the impact forces properly leading to serious injuries.
Never put a belt around a child being carried on the occupant's lap. This could lead to serious injuries.
- Reduce the possibility of being thrown from your vehicle
- Reduce the possibility of injuries to upper body, lower body and legs during an accident
- Hold the driver in a position which allows better control of the vehicle
Children who are too large for child restraint systems should always occupy the rear seat and use the vehicle seat belts. The lap portion should be fastened snug on the hips and as low as possible and the shoulder strap should be across the child's shoulder, not the neck or face. If you are unable to position the strap across the child's shoulder, the child should remain in a booster seat. Frequently check the seat belt to be sure it remains snug and in position. A squirming child could cause the seat belt to come out of position.
5.5 Seat Belt Height Adjuster (if equipped)
You can adjust the height of the shoulder belt anchor for maximum comfort and safety in both front seats. If the height of the seat belt is too near your neck, you will not be getting the most effective protection. The shoulder portion of the belt should be adjusted so that it lies across your chest and midway over your shoulder nearest to the door and not your neck.
To adjust the height of the seat belt anchor, lower or raise the height adjuster to an appropriate position while pressing the height adjuster button. Release the button to lock the anchor into position. Try sliding the height adjuster to make sure that it has locked into the position.
Adjust the shoulder belt height sitting well back in the seat. Do not adjust the seat belt height while vehicle is in motion.
5.6 Child Restraints
Use a child restraint system only if the child is not big enough to properly wear the seat belts. Else, use the regular seat belt instead of the child restraint system. Seat the child in the rear seat and use the seat belt. According to accident statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in the rear seat than in the front seat. Always secure a child in a proper child restraint system in accordance with age and size of the child as recommended by thechild restraint system manufacturer.
Do not allow children to stand up or kneel on either the rear or the front seats. An unrestrained child could suffer serious injuries during emergency braking or collision.
It is also not recommended that children travel sitting on your lap as it does not provide sufficient restraint.

8.1 Vehicle Charging
Car requires charging of battery power pack once energy stored in it gets depleted. There are two methods of charging battery power pack;
- Normal charging — Port located on the RHS over the right rear wheel arch
- Fast charging (if equipped) — Port located on the LHS over the left front wheel arch/fender
Time to charge the battery pack varies based on the state of charge, ambient & battery temperature. Hence charging time specified is an estimate and may vary.
- In case you use any medical electric devices like implantable cardiac pacemaker or cardio vascular defibrillator, do check with electric medical device supplier / manufacturer on concerns of effects that EV charging or discharging system may have on implanted devices prior to their operation.
- It is also advised not to stay in vehicle or access the vehicle during charging as it may affect function of electric medical devices and could result in personal fatal injury.
- Make sure that there are no foreign particles or water traces in charge plug or port as any of these can result in electric short circuit or shock causing serious injury or death. Hence do not touch metal contacts on cable or plug.
- Do not drag or keep charge cable close to any heat source.
- Ensure that power socket is switched off before accessing the charge cable.
- Do not handle charger cable or port with wet hands as it may cause electric shock resulting in injury.
- Do not pull or twist cable, always remove it by holding charger port handle after switching off plug point.
- Do not modify port or cable as it may cause fire hazard.
- In case you observe an unusual odor or smoke coming from vehicle, do immediately stop charging process.
- Always make sure that the charger cable is disconnected from on board charge port prior to drive.
- Charging may affect operation of worn or implanted electric medical devices and could result in serious injury or death.
Car can be charged using house charging unit installed at home or at office or with charge cable provided with the vehicle.
Always charge your car using charge cable supplied with vehicle. It normally takes approximately 8– 9 hrs to full charge from completely discharged battery.
A separate fast charge port is provided in front LH fender to charge battery power pack quickly in 120 minutes time. Fast charging cannot be done at home, this charging can be availed at places where ‘Fast charge’ stations are available exclusively for Mahindra vehicles. It is recommended to use Fast charging only in emergency needs and not always.
8.2 Wall Mount Charger (WMC) (if equipped)
Always use installed ‘WALL MOUNT CHARGER” for charging your car at home or office. Purchase a charge cable from dealer to charge your car at other charge points having proper earth.
8.3 Normal charging
Charging your car is safe and simple in just 4 steps:
- Ensure parking brake is applied and ignition key is removed.
- Take out the charge cable from vehicle.
- Plug in one side of charge cable to vehicle charge port and ensure that cable is pushed in completely.
- Plug in other end into charge point on wall socket and turn on power supply switch.
- Ensure the charge indication in the cluster is ON
Vehicle is now on charge. Charge Light (green) indicator will flash & turns solid once charging is completed.
Green LED light indicates normal charging and healthy earth in charging circuit.
Red LED light indicates fault in charging circuit for under or over voltages and residual current trip fault.
In event of earth leakage or any other faults it will trip. Press to reset after rectifying the issue.
Press to evaluate healthy condition of electric power supply once in a while if cable is being used sparingly that also shows cable is working OK or faulty.
Once charging is completed, first switch off power supply, then remove charging cable from plug point and on-board charge port. Roll and keep charge cable in its location.
8.4 Charge Duration
Time taken for charging can vary up to 8– 9 hrs from complete discharged condition. Charging duration may vary:
- If battery power pack temperature has reached its maximum limit, charging will slowdown and will take longer time to charge
- If battery power pack temperature reaches minimum limit (less than 10° C), charging will slowdown and will take longer time to charge.
8.5 Ideal Time to Charge
Vehicle can be charged anytime with availability of charging facility, however charging can be done at suitable time that has following advantages:
- Normally most of requirements for city mobility are during day, hence charging at night will not interfere in daily travel plans.
- At night, ambient temperature is less which is ideal for battery charging.
8.6 Intelligent Charging System
This vehicle has unique Intelligent Energy Management System [IEMS] that controls energy flow from mains to battery power Pack through on board charger. It will optimize energy consumption to charge battery pack completely.
Further more if there is voltage fluctuation or an interruption in main power supply, system remembers point at which charging was interrupted and resumes charging from there onwards.
8.7 Fast Charging (if equipped)
Car is fitted with an onboard fast charging port which uses high DC (current) supply for charging. This requires DC fast charging station installed exclusively for Mahindra vehicles at various locations in city. (Contact service center and Customer care for information).
- Check for fast charging station availability in the region.
- Park vehicle near to fast charging station and ensure DRIVE button is turned OFF.
- Ensure parking brake is in engaged condition.
- Take fast charge cable from station, insert connector with slight push into vehicle fast charge port located on the left fender.
- Preset charging time and press start button on fast charger.
- Car will charge as per charge settings selected at the time of charging.
- Once charging is completed press stop button on fast charger and remove charge cable connector from car and fit back to fast charge unit.
Normally charging by this mode takes approximately 120 minutes from fully discharged condition.
8.8 Trickle Charging
- Trickle charge process enables vehicle battery power pack to be topped up in every 24 hours to compensate loss due to idle discharge in vehicle.
- In the event of vehicle is not used for long time, eg. more than 1 week, plug in vehicle for charge and enable VACATION MODE using mobile app (if equipped and connected). This will ensure that batteries will be stored in safe charge storage limits enhancing battery life.
8.9 Charging Precautions
- Always use charge cable provided with your vehicle for charging.
- Do not charge your vehicle, if Power Socket and / or charge port are exposed to rain or water.
- Do not plug-in with wet hands.
- It is recommended not to charge your car in direct sunlight.
- Make sure that children are kept away from both on-board and external charge ports, while charging.
- Car should be disconnected from power source before getting any services being carried out.
Always carry charge cable provided by the manufacturer in car. It helps to charge your car at off sites and in public charging locations when required.

9 STEERING AND BRAKES
9.1 Power Steering
Your vehicle is equipped with power steering. The power steering system will give you good vehicle response and increased ease of maneuverability in tight spaces. If for some reason the power assist is interrupted, it will provide mechanical steering capability to steer the vehicle. Under these conditions, you will observe a substantial increase in steering effort, especially at very low vehicle speeds and during parking maneuvers.
Upon initial start-up in cold weather, the power steering pump may produce noise for a short amount of time. This is due to the cold, thick fluid in the steering system. This noise should be considered normal, and it does not in any way damage the steering system.
Continued operation with reduced power steering performance
could pose a safety risk to yourself and others. Have the vehicle
serviced at specified intervals or whenever a power steering
problem is noticed.
When driving in rough/off roads, hold the steering wheel rim, do not hold the wheel spokes. A sudden bump can jerk/ turn the wheel and injure your hand. This may also lead to loss of vehicle control.
Keep both hands on the steering wheel, with the thumbs resting on the outer wheel rim.
To help prevent damage to the power steering pump:
- Never hold the steering wheel to the extreme right or the extreme left for more than a few seconds when the vehicle is running
- Heavy or uneven steering efforts may be caused by low power steering pump fluid level. Check for low power steering pump fluid level before seeking service by an Authorized Mahindra Dealer
- Do not fill the power steering pump reservoir above the MAX mark on the reservoir, this may result in leaks from the reservoir
If the power steering system breaks down (or if the vehicle is turned OFF), you can still steer the vehicle manually, but it takes more effort.
If the steering wanders or pulls, check for:
- Under inflated tire(s) on any wheel(s)
- Uneven vehicle loading
- High crown in the centre of the road
- High crosswinds
- Wheels out of alignment
- Wheels out of balance
- Loose or worn suspension components
Your vehicle is equipped with disc brakes in the front and drum brakes in the rear.
Disc brakes offer good braking capability and reduced stopping distance. Wet brake discs result in reduced braking efficiency. After a car wash or driving the vehicle through water, dab the brake pedal while driving to remove the film of water from the brake pads. Brake pads feature wear indicator. When the brake pad is worn, metallic squeal noise is heard indicating the pad wear. Have them replaced immediately.
Driving with wet brakes is dangerous. Stopping distance
increases considerably when braking.
Dry the brakes by driving at very slow speed and applying the brakes lightly until the brake performance becomes normal.
Even if the power assist (vacuum assistance) is completely lost, the brakes will still work. The brake pedal would be much harder than normal and the vehicle stopping / braking distance will be longer than usual.
9.2.1 Parking on a Hill/Incline
If you have to park facing uphill, turn the front wheels away from the kerb. If you have to park facing downhill, turn the front wheels towards the kerb. Always ensure the vehicle is in Park mode and parking brake is engaged before leaving the vehicle.
9.2.2 Parking Brake
To apply the parking brake, pull the park brake lever up as firmly as possible. When the parking brake is applied with the ignition ON, the brake warning lamp in the instrument cluster illuminates. To release the parking brake, pull the parking brake lever up slightly, press the release button on the lever tip and lower the parking brake lever completely.
The brake warning lamp indicates only the parking brake status. It does not indicate the degree of brake application. Be sure the parking brake is firmly set when parked.
Be sure the parking brake is fully disengaged before driving off. Failure to do so can lead to brake problems due to excessive heating of the rear brakes.
- The parking brake should be adjusted as per recommended maintenance schedule
- Always apply the parking brake when leaving the vehicle. Failure to do so may allow the vehicle to roll and cause damage, hit a bystander resulting in personal injury.
- Leaving unattended children in a vehicle is dangerous for a number of reasons. Children should be warned not to touch the parking brake or the gear shift lever. Do not leave the key in the ignition. A child could move the vehicle leading to accidents
- The parking brake should always be applied when the driver is not in the vehicle.
Engaging the parking brake while the vehicle is in motion can cause the rear wheels to lock up. You could lose control of the vehicle and cause an accident.
9.3 Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) (if equipped)
The Anti-lock Brake System (also called as ABS) is designed to help prevent lock-up of the wheels and stable stopping of vehicle during a sudden, panic emergency braking or braking on slippery road surfaces. The ABS system takes input from wheel speed sensors and brake pedal switch to control the brake fluid pressures at the wheels to avoid wheel lock-up. It allows vehicle to be steered during braking.
The minimum speed for ABS to function is 12 kmph. ABS is activated only during wheel lock conditions where ABS takes over and prevents wheel lock. During the ABS operation, a slight pulsation may be felt in the brake pedal to indicate ABS is active. You may also hear motor noise. It is recommended to hold the brake pedal firmly while the ABS is active rather than pumping the brake pedal.
Depressing the brake pedal on slippery road surfaces as on a manhole cover, a steel plate at a construction site, a joint in a bridge, etc. on a rainy day, tends to activate the anti-lock brake system. The ABS warning lamp lights up when you switch ON the ignition and should go out after a few seconds. If the ABS warning lamp does not go out or if it comes ON while driving, it means there is a fault in the ABS system. In both cases, the normal braking system remains efficient, exactly as on a vehicle without ABS.
The vehicle should be examined as soon as possible by an authorized Mahindra dealer. The Anti-lock brake system is not designed to shorten the stopping distance: Always drive at a moderate speed and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. The stopping distance may be longer in the following cases:
- Driving on rough, gravel or snow covered roads.
- Driving with tyre chains installed.
- Driving over the steps such as the joints on the road.
- Driving on roads where the road surface is pitted or differences in surface height.
The ABS warning lamp lights up when you switch ON the ignition and should go out after a few seconds. If the ABS warning lamp does not go out or if it comes ON while driving, it means there is a fault in the ABS system. In both cases, the normal braking system remains efficient, exactly as on a vehicle without ABS. The vehicle should be examined as soon as possible by an authorized Mahindra dealer.
Do not overestimate the Anti-lock Brake System: Although the Anti-lock Brake System assists in providing vehicle control, it is still important to drive with all due care and maintain a moderate speed and safe distance from the vehicle in front of you. There are limits to the vehicle stability and effectiveness of steering wheel operation even with ABS active. If tyre grip performance exceeds its capability, or if hydroplaning occurs during high speed driving in the rain, the Anti-lock Brake System will not assist with vehicle control.
HEATING, VENTILATION AND AIR-CONDITIONING SYSTEM (HVAC)
10.1 Heating, Ventilation And Air-Conditioning System (HVAC)
The climate control system enables you to set the cabin at the desired comfortable condition by controlling airflow, air intake and temperature control. The HVAC system also helps in defrosting and defogging/de-misting the windshield and windows.
Multiple vents are provided for distributing the air, being force circulated by the HVAC blower, throughout the passenger compartment. Various ducts supply air from the HVAC unit to these vents having adjustable louvers.
To ensure sufficient air flow and hence adequate HVAC system performance, the air flow path should be kept free of obstructions. Keep the system’s air intake, located near the plenum appliqué, free of snow, leaves and other debris. Also keep the area in front of the air vents free of any obstruction inside the cabin.
|A||Side Vents||D||Center Vents|
|B||Side Defrost Vents||E||Foot Vents|
|C||Windshield Defrost Vents||F||HVAC Controls|
10.3 Centre Vents/Side Vents
Two center vents are located on either side of the centre console. The two side vents are located one each at the left and right extreme ends of the instrument panel. Both the center and side vents provide air flow to the front seat passengers.
Press the louver on the vent to open the vent. You can direct the air flow as required by adjusting the louvers. The louvers can also be turned 360oto the required direction.
There are four defrost vents in your vehicle; two side defrost and two windshield defrost vents. The side defrost vents prevent the front windows from de-misting, whereas the windshield defrost vents help in clearing the mist from windshield.
10.4 HVAC Controls
|A||Air Re-circulation Switch||D||Blower Speed Control & AC ON/OFF|
|B||Rear Windshield De-mister||E||Temperature Control|
|C||Air Distribution Control|
10.5 Air Distribution Control
Air distribution control allows you to select the below air flow patterns;
- Face Mode
- Face-Foot Mode
- Foot Mode
- Foot-Defrost Mode
- Defrost Mode
Rotate the control dial on the air distribution switch to adjust the air flow pattern as required.
When air distribution is set to “Defrost Mode”, the air intake is automatically changed to “Fresh Air Mode” and the LED is turned OFF. Once the air distribution is changed from “Defrost” to any other mode, the air intake is maintained in “Fresh Air Mode” until changed manually.
10.6 Temperature Control
|A||Cool Air||B||Hot Air|
By operating the temperature control knob, temperature of air being discharged from various vents can be adjusted to the desired level. Based upon selected position of the temperature control dial, the desired discharged air temperature can be obtained.
When temperature knob is set in any intermediate position on the blue/cold side, the compressor turns ON/OFF at specific intervals to maintain the desired temperature. This is normal.
To turn the heater, keep the temperature knob position towards the “red” side and switch on the AC.
By rotating the dial counter-clockwise and setting it to the extreme left position, cool air is discharged. When the dial is rotated clockwise, the discharge air progressively starts getting warmer. By rotating the dial further in the clockwise direction and setting it to the extreme right position, hot air is discharged.
Blue strip/side represents cooling and red strip/side represents heating.
Blower force-circulates air through the HVAC unit and distributes it throughout the passenger compartment.
To increase the blower speed, rotate the control dial clockwise and to reduce the blower speed, rotate the dial counter clockwise.
To switch OFF the blower, rotate the dial to the extreme left in anticlockwise direction.
The compressor speed also varies with the blower position. Hence the cooling and noise in the cabin will vary accordingly.
10.8 Air Conditioner Control (AC ON)
This button is common for AC and heater, it turns ON the AC/ heater based on the temperature knob position. Adjust the temperature control dial as per the temperature requirement. LED on the button indicates the status. Push the button to turn ON/OFF the AC.
When the air conditioner is functioning, air gets cooled and dehumidified before being circulated inside the cabin. In hot weather conditions, it will take a slightly longer time to cool the interior as compared to cooler weather. Range of the vehicle will be relatively lower if the vehicle is being driven with the air conditioner.
10.8.1 Re-circulation/Fresh Air Mode
Press the re-circulation mode button located in the HVAC control bezel, to toggle between fresh air and recirculation modes.
In the intake mode, the air from inside the passenger compartment will be sucked by the blower and utilized further to ventilate/cool/ heat the cabin.
For quick cabin cooling/heating or while driving through dusty/ polluted areas, re-circulation mode can be selected for short periods.
However, running the air conditioner in re-circulation mode for long will make cabin air too dry and oxygen level drops inside cabin turning the air stale. On the contrary, keeping air intake control in recirculation mode for long, with air conditioner switched OFF, will make cabin air too humid and are more likely to become foggy. Hence never drive in recirculation mode without the AC for long.
Never keep recirculation mode selected without the AC. Prolonged use of the HVAC system in recirculation mode without the AC may cause windshield/windows to mist/fog-up, impairing visibility which can lead to an accident, endangering you and others.
For faster cabin cooling or heating you can select re-circulated air intake mode. It is recommended to switch to fresh air mode occasionally to replenish the oxygen level inside the cabin. Also blower speed and temperature control knob can be re-adjusted as desired.
If your vehicle was parked in the hot sun with all the windows closed, drive the vehicle with windows open for the first few minutes. This will help in venting the hot interior air out and allow the air conditioner to cool the cabin quickly.
10.8.2 Front Windshield Defogging/De-misting
Set the air distribution control to defrost mode and set the temperature to hot. When defrost mode is chosen, the air intake is automatically set to fresh air mode.
Air is discharged through the windshield defroster vents and side defroster vents. The defogger heats the front windshield clearing the fog/ frost. Switch OFF the defogger/defrost mode as soon as the fog/frost is cleared.
10.8.3 Rear Windshield Defogging/De-misting (if equipped)
- If SOC is less than 10%, AC will switch off to save energy for driving only
- For quickly defogging/de-misting/defrosting outside of windshield, it is advisable to operate the windshield wiper/ washer for few times intermittently.
- In freezing weather, warm the windshield with the defroster before using the windshield washer. Also use a washer fluid having anti-freezing properties. These will help prevent the washer fluid from freezing on your windshield.
- Dirty/contaminated windshield would make misting/ fogging- up worse. Always keep inside and outside of windshield clean.
- Reduced air flow because of clogged HVAC filter or any other obstructions in air flow path may lead to in-adequate defogging/ de-misting/defrosting performance. If air flow seems to have considerably reduced, get the filter cleaned or replaced immediately. Air flow path should be kept free of obstructions.
Your vehicle is equipped with a HVAC filter. If the AC performance is considerably low, it is recommended have the HVAC filter checked at the nearest Mahindra dealer.
Never operate HVAC system with the filter removed. This may result in premature failure of system components.
- The air conditioning system in this vehicle also supports cooling for the HV batteries.
- There are chances for AC switching on even if the AC switch is in OFF position. This is due to HV battery cooling requirement. This is applicable even during key OFF and charging modes.
- Sometimes even when cabin heater is requested, you may get cool air out of the vents. This is due to cooling request from the HV batteries. This condition will return back to user mode once the battery cooling requirement is met.
- Sometimes even when the AC switch is turned OFF, and only the blower is ON, you may still get cool air, this is due to cooling request from the HV batteries.
In all the above conditions, you have an option to turn OFF the blower till the battery requirement is met.
11 STARTING AND DRIVING THE VEHICLE
11.1 Safety Tips - Before Starting your Vehicle
- Before starting the vehicle, inspect the inside and outside of the vehicle and look for any damages, leaks, loose parts, foreign objects/debris. Contact an Authorized Mahindra Dealer if required.
- Before starting your journey, check the working of all safety devices/components especially brakes, steering, lamps, signals and tires. In case you suspect any system/devices not working properly contact Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
- Adjust the seat headrest, steering wheel and fasten the seat belt as described in this manual. Never perform any seat/ steering adjustments when the vehicle is in motion.
- Start the vehicle only when seated and belted in the driver's seat.
- Ensure that the rear view mirror and both the ORVM’s are adjusted for an unobstructed view of the road behind.
- Have someone observe and confirm normal operation of all exterior lamps while you work on the controls from the driver seat. Also, check functioning of all lamps in the instrument panel.
- Check for positive closing, latching, and locking of all doors, both from inside and outside.
- Check the area under vehicle after an overnight parking for power steering fluid, brake fluid or other fluid leaks. If leaks are observed, contact an Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
|A||Accelerator Pedal||B||Brake Pedal|
The first few shifts on a new vehicle may be somewhat rough. This is a normal phenomenon, and precision shifts will develop within the initial few hundred kilometers of running.
11.3.1 Gear Lever
Gear lever enables you to choose your desired drive direction. This shift pattern is imprinted on the gear lever knob.
A gear indicator is integrated in the instrument cluster to aid in identifying the gear.
Press gear release button on the lever and then move lever from 'N' to 'F' mode. This is normal driving mode position to drive in forward direction (max speed is 86 kmph) and driving in this mode will give best drive range.
This position also enables you to drive in forward direction with quick acceleration & to overtake during driving.
It is always recommended to keep the brake pedal depressed in this position. Always park your car in ‘Neutral’ position before turning off STOP button.
Do not leave the vehicle with the gear shift lever in neutral position. Always engage manual parking brake before leaving the vehicle, to prevent any vehicle movement leading to possible injury to a by-stander or damage to vehicle.
This gear is to enable the vehicle to move in the reverse direction with beep and speed is limited to 20 Kmph. Press gear release button and move the gear shift lever into this position only after the vehicle has come to a complete stop.
11.4 Starting and Driving
Check energy level on SOC bar and digital SOC display. Ensure that there is enough charge for your immediate journey
Simple steps to get your car started & ready to drive:
- Turn off power supply and remove plug from wall socket.
- Unplug charge cable. Roll it & keep inside vehicle.
- Turn on Key
- Press Drive enable button (wait for LED to glow Orange colour)
- Pressing gear release button, select gear lever to desired driving position.
- Release parking brake, press accelerator pedal. Use only your right leg for applying accelerator & brake pedal.
- When you require a higher acceleration to overtake other vehicles or in up-hill climbing, move gear lever to ‘Boost’ [B] mode. In this mode you attain a much higher torque. The max. Speed is 86 kmph and it is possible for you to switch from Forward [F] mode to Boost [B] mode or vice-versa while car is in motion. However, for optimal driving range, you are advised to use Forward [F] mode.
- To reverse, make sure that your car is stationary. Then move gear lever to reverse [R] mode. Press accelerator gently and drive backward. In this mode, speed is electronically limited to 20 kmph approx. for safety reasons.
When charge level in your battery pack reduces to less than 10% SOC, vehicle energy monitoring system puts vehicle on “power save mode” where in car will drive in reduced power.
This is due to pre-programmed software in your vehicle’s Intelligent Energy Management System [IEMS] and Motor Controller. These components will monitor, as far as possible, that you never get stranded on the road due to insufficient energy in battery Pack. Digital SOC & SOC bar displays available energy and ‘distance to empty’ indicating your driving range from previous & present drive. As you cover distance, digital SOC & gauge bar will reduce continuously displaying possible drive range from remaining energy in battery pack.
Operate brake pedal and accelerator pedal with your right foot only.
While driving, if you remove your foot from accelerator pedal without pressing brake pedal, you will feel partial regenerative braking. This is normal and is attributed to vehicle’s regenerative braking that will re-charge batteries for an extra drive range.
Always ensure energy level is sufficient for proposed travel distance. Avoid driving below 1% State of Charge as vehicle might stop at any point of time from now. Find nearest charge point to charge your car.
11.5 Parking the Vehicle
- After stopping the vehicle, select Neutral (N) position (confirm by checking the gear indicator in the instrument cluster) while depressing the brake pedal.
- Apply the parking brake.
- Turn the key OFF.
- Check any warning message / chime during going out of vehicle.
11.6 REVive (if equipped)
In event of SOC is low (<10%) while in drive, you can activate reserve energy by activating “REVive”. This will allow you to get energy released from battery reserve to reach your destination or near charge point. ‘REVive’ feature to be used in emergency, hence use ‘REVive’ feature carefully by planning your daily travel.
User charges are applicable for REVive function.
11.7 Hill Hold and Restraint (if equipped)
This feature allows you stop your car on inclined roads for few seconds after pressing and holding brake for a second. It gives an added advantage to user for having good control while driving on an incline.
- Press & hold brake pedal for 1 second
- The car holds for 2 seconds & then slowly restrain backwards.
- To release car from hill hold or restrain, press accelerator or brake pedal.
11.8 Extending Your Driving Range
- Always make sure that you release parking brake completely before driving your car.
- Always drive car using right foot only.
- Always drive in Forward [F] mode to get optimum range out of your battery.
- Use B mode when you want to overtake or when you need additional boost.
- Pre cool your car cabin remotely (If equipped) by turning on air-condition when still plugged in for charge. This will ensure that battery will be 100% charge with cabin temperature preconditioned.
- Use air-condition with desired level of cooling set during drive. This will help in consuming less energy for cooling.
- By anticipating and applying gradual braking you will ensure car batteries will be recharged for extra range. Vehicle is assisted with electrical regenerative braking, also vacuum assisted brake for short stop.

12 WHEELS AND TIRES
12.1 Tire Information
|A||RADIAL TIRES OR BIAS-PLY TIRE|
|C||MAX LOAD LIMIT|
|F||“TUBELESS” OR “TUBE TYPE”|
12.2 Tire Rating
Your vehicle is originally equipped with tires supplied by a reputable manufacturer. If you ever have any questions regarding your tires, please refer to literature supplied by the tire manufacturer, or to the separate tire warranty provided by the tire manufacturer. You may also contact Mahindra directly, or the tire manufacturer.
The tire rating of your vehicle is;
- 185/70 R14 88T
Tire rating is explained as below;
(A):185 (Three-digit number): This number gives the width in millimeters of the tire from sidewall edge to sidewall edge. This is called as “Section Width”.
(B):70 (Two-digit number): This number, known as the aspect ratio, gives the tires ratio of height to section width.
(C): R This is the Tire Construction Code. The “R” stands for Radial.
(D):14 (Two-digit number):This number is the wheel or rim diameter in inches.
(E):88(Two or three digit number):This number is the tire’s load index. It is a measurement of how much weight each tire can support.
(F): T Tire speed rating or speed symbol. Never drive the vehicle faster than the tire speed rating. The speed rating denotes the speed at which a tire is designed to be driven for extended periods of time under a standard condition of load and inflation pressure.
12.2.1 Speed Rating
|SPEED SYMBOL||MAX SPEED CAPABILITY||SPEED SYMBOL||MAX SPEED CAPABILITY|
12.3 Tire Label (Vehicle Placard)
Tire Label (Vehicle Placard) is located on the front passenger side inner B-pillar. This placard tells you important information about tire size designed for your vehicle, and the laden/unladen tire inflation pressures for the front & rear tires.
Never overload your vehicle. Overloading can cause tire failure, affect vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance, resulting in an accident and/or personal injury.
Improper inflated tires can adversely affect vehicle handling or can fail unexpectedly, resulting in an accident and/or personal injury.
12.4 Tire Pressure
Proper tire inflation pressure is essential to the safe and satisfactory operation of your vehicle. Three primary areas are affected by improper tire pressure;
- Ride Comfort and Vehicle Stability
Proper tire inflation contributes to a comfortable and safe ride. Overinflating produces a jarring and uncomfortable ride. Both underinflation and overinflation affect the stability of the vehicle and can produce a feeling of sluggish response or over responsiveness in the steering. Unequal tire pressures can cause erratic and unpredictable steering response or may cause the vehicle to drift left or right.
Improper inflation pressures can cause uneven wear patterns to develop across the tire tread. These abnormal wear patterns will reduce tread life resulting in a need for earlier tire replacement. Under inflation also increases tire rolling resistance and may result in lesser range.
The proper cold tire inflation pressure is listed in the Tire Label (Vehicle Placard), located on the front passenger side inner Bpillar.
12.4.1 Inspection and Adjustment Procedure
The tire pressure should be checked and adjusted, as well as inspected for signs of tire wear or visible damage, at least once a month. Use a good quality pressure gauge to check tire pressure. Do not make a visual judgement when determining proper inflation. Radial tires may look properly inflated even when they are underinflated. At the same time, each tire should be inspected for signs of tire wear or visible damage.
Inflation pressures specified on the placard are always cold tire inflation pressures. Cold tire inflation pressure is defined as the tire pressure after the vehicle has not been driven for at least three hours, or driven less than 1 km after a three-hour period. Check tire pressures more often if subject to a wide range of outdoor temperatures, as tire pressures vary with temperature changes. Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 7°C of air temperature change. Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage, especially in the winter.
When it was new, the spare tire in your vehicle was fully inflated. However, a spare tire can lose pressure over time. In order to avoid being stranded, check the spare tire air pressure frequently.
12.4.2 Inflating Your Tires
Safe operation of your vehicle requires that your tires are properly inflated. Remember that a tire can lose up to half of its air pressure without appearing flat.
At least once a month or before long trips, inspect each tire and check the tire pressure with a tire gauge (including spare tire). Inflate all tires to the recommended inflation pressure.
Under-inflation is the most common cause of tire failures and may result in severe tire cracking, tread separation or “blowout”, with unexpected loss of vehicle control and increased risk of injury. Under-inflation increases sidewall flexing and rolling resistance, resulting in heat buildup and internal damage to the tire. It also may result in unnecessary tire stress, irregular wear, loss of vehicle control and accidents.
Always inflate your tires to the recommended pressure even if it is less than the maximum inflation pressure information found on the tire. The recommended tire inflation pressure is found on the Tire Label which is located on the front passenger side inner B-pillar. Failure to follow the tire pressure recommendations can cause uneven tread wear patterns and adversely affect the way your vehicle handles.
If you overfill the tire, release air by pushing the metal stem in the center of the valve. Then recheck the pressure.
After inspecting or adjusting the tire pressure, always reinstall the valve stem cap (if equipped). This will prevent moisture and dirt from entering the valve stem, which could damage the stem, resulting in an unexpected loss of tire pressure, an accident and/or personal injury.
12.4.3 Radial Ply Tires
Combining radial ply tires with other types of tires on your vehicle will cause your vehicle to handle poorly, resulting in an accident and/or personal injury. Always use radial tires in sets of four. Never combine them with other types of tires.
Cuts and punctures in radial tires are repairable only in the tread area because of sidewall flexing. Consult your authorized dealer for radial tire repairs.
12.4.4 Life of Tire
The service life of a tire is dependent upon various factors including but not limited to;
- Driving style
- Tire pressure
- Distance driven
Tires and the spare tire should be replaced after six years, regardless of the remaining tread. Failure to follow this warning can result in sudden and unexpected tire failure, leading to an accident and/or personal injury.
Replacing original tires with tires of a different size may result in false speedometer and odometer readings.
12.5 Tire Rotation Recommendations
Tires on the front and rear axles of vehicles operate at different loads and perform different steering, handling, and braking functions. For these reasons, they wear at unequal rates and develop irregular wear patterns.
Rotation will increase tread life, help to maintain mud, snow, and wet traction levels, and contribute to a smooth, quiet ride. Follow the recommended tire rotation frequency for your type of driving.
It is recommended rotating the tires as per the “Maintenance Schedule”.
The suggested rotation method is the “forward-cross” shown in the diagram. The benefits of rotation are especially worthwhile with aggressive tread designs such as those on On/Off-road type tires.
Rotation will increase tread life, help to maintain mud, snow, and wet traction levels, and contribute to a smooth, quiet ride. Follow the recommended tire rotation frequency for your type of driving. More frequent rotation is permissible if desired. The reasons for any rapid or unusual wear should be corrected prior to rotation being performed.
12.5.1 Changing a Flat Tire
Refer to “If you have a Flat Tire” section in the general chapter for details.
12.5.2 Wheel Tightness
When you change a wheel, remove all rust and dirt at all locations where the wheel contacts the wheel hub. Use a scraper or wire brush to be sure that you remove all rust and dirt. A loose wheel could have damaged or elongated the holes in the rim, or damaged the rim/hub assembly. If any of the wheel studs or nuts are damaged, contact the nearest Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
Always tighten the nuts in a crisscross sequence. Never use oil or grease on your wheel studs or nuts.
Never over tighten the nuts on the wheel stud. You could damage the stud or the nut.
Torque tighten the wheel nuts to the specified value at the nearest Authorized Mahindra Workshop.
The tyres fitted in this vehicle meet the requirements of BIS and they comply with the requirements under the Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR) 1989.
13.1 General Owners Information
Your vehicle has been designed for fewer maintenance requirements with longer service intervals to save both your time and money. However, each regular maintenance, as well as day-today care is more important to ensure a smooth, trouble free, safe and economical operation.
It is the owner's responsibility to make sure the specified maintenance, including general maintenance service is performed.
Where to go for service?
Mahindra technicians are well trained specialists and are kept up to date with the latest service information through technical bulletins, service tips and in dealership training programs. They learn to work on Mahindra vehicles before they work on your vehicle, rather than while they are working on it.
You can be confident that your Mahindra dealer's service department does the best job to meet the maintenance requirements on your vehicle reliably and economically.
Get the most from your vehicle with routine maintenance
Routine maintenance is the best way to help ensure you get the performance, dependability, long life and better resale value you expect from your vehicle. This is exactly why we've put together this Maintenance Section. It outlines the services required to properly maintain your vehicle and when they should be performed. The focus is on maintaining your vehicle while it's running great, which goes a long way towards preventing major repairs and expenses later.
Here are a few suggestions to help you get started on routine maintenance:

If an Authorized Mahindra Dealership is unable to resolve the concern, you may contact any Mahindra Customer Care executive. They would need the following information:
Owner's name and address, owner's telephone number (home and office), Authorized Dealership name, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), vehicle delivery date and mileage.
13.1.2 Protect your Warranty
Routine maintenance is not only the best way to help keep your vehicle performing as intended, it's also the best way to protect your warranty. Failure to perform scheduled maintenance specified will invalidate warranty coverage on parts affected by the lack of maintenance. We can't stress enough how important it is to keep records of all maintenance. Damage or failures due to neglect or lack of proper maintenance are not covered under warranty.
It's important to document the maintenance of your vehicle. For your convenience to maintain records of service, the scheduled maintenance coupons are provided in the service coupon booklet. Every time you bring your vehicle in for scheduled maintenance, be sure to present this booklet and certify the work. Also record the date of service and mileage at the time of service. This will make record keeping easy and, should your vehicle ever require warranty coverage, you will have all the documentation to show you've properly maintained it.
13.1.3 Maintenance Interval
Mahindra establishes recommended maintenance intervals based upon engineering testing to determine the most appropriate mileage to perform the various maintenance services. This protects your vehicle at the lowest overall cost to you. Mahindra recommends that you do not deviate from the maintenance schedules presented in this Maintenance Schedule.

13.7 In the EBox Compartment
13.7.1 Checking/Topping Brake Fluid
The brake system fluid is supplied from the brake reservoir.
The brake fluid level will drop slowly as the brakes wear, and will rise when the brake components are replaced. Fluid levels between the “MIN” and “MAX” lines are within the normal operating range; there is no need to add fluid. If the fluid levels are below the “MIN” mark, the performance of the systems could be compromised; the brake operation could be spongy.
Top-up the recommended brake fluid till the “MAX” mark or contact an Authorized Mahindra Dealer immediately.
Carefully clean the cap on the reservoir before you remove it and be sure no debris fall in the reservoir. Do not keep the reservoir open for longer than necessary to add brake fluid.
Use only brake fluid that meets Mahindra specifications. Refer to ‘Lubricant and Capacities’ section.
Draining or changing of brake fluid should always be done by an Authorized Mahindra dealer.
13.7.2 Checking/Topping Power Steering Fluid
Check the power steering fluid level at the defined service intervals.
The power steering reservoir is located in the LHS behind the left head lamp/front bumper. It is recommended that the power steering fluid top-up/change be done by an Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
The fluid level should be checked if a leak is suspected, abnormal noises are apparent, and/or the system is not functioning as anticipated. Coordinate inspection efforts through an Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
Driving vehicle with power steering fluid below minimum mark will damage steering system.
Use only recommended power steering fluid. Do not use other types of power steering fluids which may damage the power steering system.
13.7.3 Windshield Washer Fluid Top-up
Top up the front windshield washer reservoirs as and when required. The front windshield washer is located below the wipers in the EBox bay.
In very cold weather conditions, fill the reservoir with washer fluid premixed with anti-freeze.
If you operate your vehicle in temperatures below 4.5ºC, use washer fluid with anti-freeze protection. Failure to use washer fluid with anti-freeze protection in cold weather could result in impaired windshield vision and increase the risk of injury or accident.
13.7.4 Checking the Wiper Blades
Lift the wiper arm from its position. Expose the blade lip for inspection. Clean the wiper blade lips with water applied with a soft sponge. If the wiper blade is not wiping the glass satisfactorily or is worn-out, cut, cracked or bulging get it replaced at an Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
13.7.5 Changing the Wiper Blade
- Lift the arm and position the wiper blade at right angles to the wiper arm
- Press the retaining clip in the opposite direction, disengage the wiper blade and pull it off the arm
- Hold the end of the rubber and pull until the tabs are free of the metal support
- Carefully insert the new blade rubber. Then install the blade assembly in the reverse order of removal
To prevent damage to the windshield, don’t let the wiper arm slap down on to it.
13.8 Appearance Care and Protection
13.8.1 Washing the Exterior
- Wash your vehicle regularly with cool or lukewarm water and a neutral pH soap
- Never use strong household detergents or soap, such as dish washing or laundry liquid. These products can discolor and spot painted surfaces
- Never wash a vehicle that is ‘hot to touch’ or during exposure to strong, direct sunlight
- Always use a clean sponge or car wash mitt with plenty of water for best results
- Dry the vehicle with a chamois or soft terry cloth towel in order to eliminate water spotting
- It is important to wash the vehicle regularly during the winter months, as dirt and road salt are difficult to remove and cause damage to the vehicle
Use only approved products to clean plastic parts. These products are available with your authorized dealer. You can use these cleaners;
- For routine cleaning of plastic parts
- For tar or grease spots
- For plastic head lamp lenses
13.8.2 EBox Compartment
Do not wash the EBox compartment with high pressure water.
13.8.3 Windows and Wiper Blades
The front/rear windshield, side windows and the wiper blades should be cleaned regularly. If the wipers do not wipe properly, substances on the vehicle's glass or the wiper blades may be the cause. These may include hot wax treatments used by commercial car washes, water repellent coatings, tree sap, or other organic contamination; these contaminants may cause squeaking or chatter noise from the blades, and streaking and smearing of the windshield.
To clean these items follow these tips;
- The windshield, rear windows and side windows may be cleaned with a non-abrasive cleaner such as Clear Spray Glass Cleaner, available at your Authorized Mahindra Dealer.
- The wiper blades can be cleaned with alcohol or Premium Windshield Washer Concentrate, available at your Authorized Mahindra Dealer. This washer fluid contains a special solution in addition to alcohol which helps remove the hot wax deposited on the wiper blade and windshield. Be sure to replace wiper blades when they appear worn or do not function properly.
- Do not use abrasives, as they may cause scratches.
If you cannot remove those streaks after cleaning with the glass cleaner or if the wipers chatter and move in a jerky motion, clean the outer surface of the windshield and the wiper blades using a sponge or soft cloth with a neutral detergent or mild-abrasive cleaning solution. After cleaning, rinse the windshield and wiper blades with clean water. The windshield is clean if beads do not form when you rinse the windshield with water.
Do not use sharp objects, such as a razor blade, to remove decals, as it may cause damage to the glass or rear windshield heater grid lines (if equipped).
13.8.4 Instrument Panel/Interior Trim and Cluster Lens
Do not use chemical solvents or strong detergents when cleaning the steering wheel or instrument panel.
Clean the instrument panel, interior trim areas and cluster lens with a clean and damp white cotton cloth, then with a clean and dry white cotton cloth; you may also use Dash and Vinyl Cleaner on the instrument panel and interior trim areas.

13.10 Bulb Replacement
13.10.1 Head Lamp Bulb Replacement
The head lamp bulb can be replaced without removing the head lamp assembly from the vehicle. The head lamp assembly has been removed here for illustration purpose only.
To replace the head lamp bulb;
- Ensure ignition is switched OFF
- Remove the bulb assembly with connector from the head lamp by unlocking the wire clamp
- Detach the bulb assembly from the wiring connector near to the head lamp
- Insert the connector into the new bulb (of the same wattage), and follow the reverse procedure to assemble the bulb assembly in the headlight assembly
- Clamp the bulb assembly by wire clamp properly
Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers. Oil contamination will severely shorten bulb life. If the bulb comes in contact with any oily surface, clean the bulb with rubbing alcohol.
To avoid burning yourself, do not replace the light bulbs when they are hot. Halogen bulbs have pressurized gas inside and are to be handled with special care. Mishandling it may cause the bulb to burst or shatter. Hold the bulb with its metal/plastic holder/base and do not touch the glass part with bare hands.
Using bulbs with units of higher output capacity/wattage is illegal and may damage your vehicle’s electrical system.
Replacement bulbs must meet the specification of originally fitted bulbs.
