We have reported earlier that Mahindra & Mahindra is planning to expand its electric vehicle portfolio with a range of new models. The carmaker also confirmed that its first electric SUV will hit Indian roads during 2019-2020. While the company is already working on the electric versions of the KUV100 mini SUV, Aero Coupe, Scorpio and XUV500 SUVs, its upcoming S201 (codename) subcompact SUV will also receive an electric powertrain.
Speaking on the sideline of the company’s Q2 results for FY2019, Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra has revealed that Mahindra S201 electric SUV will be rolled out in the first or second quarter of the calendar year 2020.

The carmaker’s most expensive SUV project – the Mahindra Aero Coupe – will also come with an electric motor. While the engine details are still under the wraps, it is likely to deliver an electric range of 350km and a top speed of 186kmph.
