Mahindra and Mahindra recently announced the official name its new MPV – the Mahindra Marazzo. At the pre-launch event, Pawan Goenka , Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra, has also confirmed that the company will launch its first electric SUV in India during 2019-2020. Though, he didn’t reveal the name of the vehicle.
We believe that the home-grown carmaker might bring in the electric version of the KUV100 hatchback that made its public debut at the 2018 Auto Expo in February. The carmaker will also launch the Mahindra Aero Coupe Electric SUV sometime in 2020. Besides this, Mahindra’s popular SUVs – the XUV500 and the Scorpio – will also get the electric powertrain in coming years.
