The Mahindra Funster SUV concept is likely to be based on MESMA (Mahindra electric scalable modular architecture) platform developed at the company’s Bengaluru based research centre. The new architecture can accommodate a low-set lithium-ion battery pack into the floor. The layout helps in achieving a low centre of gravity and creating maximum cabin space with a fully flat floor.
The new MESA platform is compatible to battery packs ranging from a 21kWh to 34kWh offering an electric range between 240km to over 390km on a full charge. The carmaker claims that its battery capacity can be increased up to 54kWh with range up to 590km (New European Driving Cycle tests) by extending its wheelbase by up to 300mm. As of now, the interior details of the Mahindra Funster are now available.
