Reports are that Mahindra’s eKUV100 Electric will arrive in the next quarter of 2020 and will carry a price tag under $18,000 AUD (₹9 lakh INR) ex-showroom. The Mahindra eKUV100, announced Pawan Goenka, Mahindra MD and CEO, is one of the most anticipated electric vehicle launches this year.
The Mahindra eKUV100 is identical in terms of look to its petrol derivative. The interior will remain largely unchanged as well, but there may be a larger infotainment system in place and possibly a digital instrument console as well.
Power on the Mahindra eKUV100 will come from a 40 kW electric that belts out about 53 bhp and 120 Nm of peak torque. The car will come with a 15.9 kWh lithium-ion battery and is expected to offer a range of 120 km on a single charge. There is most likely to be both standard and fast-charging options and will be compatible with a wall socket.
According to Goenka, the Mahindra eKuv100 will be one of the most affordable electric vehicles in the country. The eKUV100 will also be one of the all-new electric cars from Mahindra. This will be followed up with the XUV300 Electric, and the Ford Aspire based sedan under the Mahindra-Ford joint venture.
It also looks like the Mahindra eKuv100 will be one of the most affordable electric vehicles in the country. Goenka, confirmed the development at a recent event and also announced that the model will be brought with a price tag below $18,000 AUD (₹9 lakh INR) ex-showroom.
The Tata Tigor EV is also in a similar price bracket, so there will be some tough competition there. Apart from the eKUV100, the Tata Nexon EV and the MG ZS EV are also scheduled for launch this year but are positioned higher in the price band.
