Besides the Mahindra KUV100 electric (Mahidnra S107), the company is also working on a four-door variant of the e20.
The growing popularity of sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and a steady rise in the demand for electric cars have encouraged Mahindra Electric to work on an affordable electric SUV. Codenamed Mahindra S107, this could become the world’s most affordable electric SUV upon its launch. This product will be rolled out in several international markets including India.
According to a report published in Economic Times, the upcoming Mahindra S107 could be the KUV100’s electric version. Besides the Mahindra KUV100 Electric, the company is contemplating more SUVs and commercial vehicles to its electric car portfolio. Recently, the company had launched the Verito electric.
At the company’s 70th annual general meeting, Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra said, “If anyone is preparing feverishly for a disruptive future of mobility, it is Mahindra,” He further said that while the Verito electric aims to address the practical buyers, a compact electric SUV would target people who want a better driving experience.
Besides the Mahindra KUV100 electric (Mahidnra S107), the company is also working on a four-door variant of the e20. At the previous editions of the Delhi Auto Expo, the company had showcased the Mahindra Halo electric sports car and XUV500 electric, though there is no clarity yet about the launch timeline of these vehicles.
With a bunch of new products, Mahindra Electric aims to foucus on increasing its base in both overseas as well as the home market.
Since the discussion upon the KUV100 electric is at early stage, we don’t expect it to launch anytime before 2018. We’ll update you on this as soon as the company makes an official statement.
