Mahindra unveils a new proving track ahead of the launch of the XUV700

Mahindra SUV proving track

Mahindra has unveiled an all-new SUV proving track ahead of the XUV700’s global debut. The Mahindra SUV Proving Track (MSPT) is a new track in Kanchipuram, Tamil Nadu, that will be crucial in the development of all future Mahindra SUVs.

What is the Mahindra SUV Proving Track (MSPT)?

It was built by Larsen and Toubro (L&T) and designed by IDIADA (Institute for Applied Automotive Research) for Mahindra. As part of this new 454-acre site, the 4X4 Centre of Excellence will be located. Besides vehicle development, it will also be open to the public next year for those who wish to participate in the event. There is also a Mahindra Research Valley near Chennai, which is home to nearly all of Mahindra’s vehicle development in India. This new track will allow the Mahindra Research Valley engineers to thoroughly test the product and prepare it for the homologation process with this new track.

Details on the Mahindra SUV Testing Track (MSPT):

Apart from the 4X4 centre, the 454-acre MSPT also has 20 purpose-built tracks on it. Zero percent slope high-speed tests with a 43.7-degree parabolic banking setup for higher neutral speeds are among the options available. On the straight high-speed road, vehicles can reach speeds of over 200kph.
