Mahindra Electric, India’s largest EV player, on Thursday confirmed that the company would be showcasing the electric version of KUV100 with a price tag starting from under Rs 9 lakh in the first quarter of the new financial year at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020 as it aims to expand its portfolio to newer segments.

The Mahindra eKUV100 was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. the Mahindra eKUV100 will use a 40kW electric motor that produces 53bph and 120Nm of peak torque. Power will be transmitted to the front wheels via a single-speed gearbox. The electric mini SUV will come with a 15.9 kWh lithium-ion battery with an expected range of 120 km on a single charge. The electric iteration of the Mahindra KUV100 is likely to support both standard power socket charging and fast charging.

Speaking at an event to mark 1000 electric vehicles delivered to Lithium Urban Technologies for fleet transportation, Dr Pawan Goenka, MD, Mahindra & Mahindra, said the company is focused on expanding its presence in the shared e-mobility space. “We are delighted to cross this milestone of 1,000 Mahindra EVs and 100 million kilometres together with Lithium. Our partnership is aimed at increasing the large-scale adoption of EVs and bringing a positive change in consumers’ daily commute. Going forward, Mahindra’s expanding portfolio of EVs in both 3W and 4W across multiple price points will transform the way India travels.”

Goenka also said, “We already have the e-Verito and we will be showcasing the e-KUV100 at the Auto Expo next month. The car will be launched in the first quarter of the new financial year. We will also bring in the e-XUV300 in 2021.”

“22,000 Mahindra e-vehicles on Indian roads – spanning three and four-wheelers. He highlighted that with manufacturers like Tata, MG and Hyundai entering the electric space, clean mobility has been given an impetus but urged more OEMs to join,” said Dr Pawan Goenka.

The e-KUV100 mini SUV will look similar to its petrol counterpart. The vehicle might see minor design changes such as a new grille and revised headlamps and tail-lamps. Interior layout of the e-vehicles will be exactly similar to the regular model. It’s likely to receive a larger infotainment unit and a digital instrument console.
