Mahindra will launch the XUV300 on 14th February in India. It seems like they are gunning for top spot when it comes to features on offer. We have a confirmation that the Mahindra XUV300 will come with smart watch connectivity, a first in segment feature. Also on offer will be EcoSense feature in the touch screen interface.
With this, users can see a lot of car functions on their Smart Watch. There is a Bluesense app for Mahindra XUV300 on Android Auto and owners can connect their phones via this. Next, they need to connect their watch to the phones and this way, they can access Bluesense app on the smart watch. On the screen on the Smartwatch you can see various functions of the Mahindra XUV300. These include locating the car, audio controls, climate controls, fuel economy figures etc. But we feel this is only possible when you are near the car and hence you cannot use the Blue sense app remotely, right? Any which way, it will be a bragging right for the car manufacturer.
Also, like its elder sibling the XUV500, this one will also get Ecosense function in the touch-screen interface. With this EcoSense function, you can see the score you get for your driving pattern. The score is based on various parameters like acceleration, speed, braking, idling time etc. We feel this will help drivers improve their driving a lot. If you have a good score, you can even share it on social platforms right away.
