Mahindra has been planning to bring proper EVs for the passenger car market for quite some time now. With Mahindra showcasing eKUV100 and eXUV300 in last year’s Auto Expo, and the launch of eKUV100’s launch being speculated for some time now. Finally one of our readers, Mr Shubham Shinde has spotted testing the electric avatar of the KUV100 recently. In this article, we will discuss this upcoming product.
The eKUV100 looks extremely similar to the regular KUV100 from behind. The only thing that differentiates the eKUV100 from the KUV100 is the chrome padding below the Mahindra logo on the tailgate, sporting the ‘+’ and ‘–‘ signs. The same thing is seen on the test mule which is completely uncovered.
The eKUV100 can also be seen sporting a K8 badging instead of an eKUV badging. This could be a variant of the upcoming electric car. The wheels on the test mule are directly borrowed from the KUV100 NXT.
The test mule can be clearly seen sporting a charging port at the front similar to the Auto Expo model. Moreover, the test mule clearly reveals the eKUV getting rear parking sensors. Overall, the test mule looks very similar to the Auto Expo model.
Battery, Range & Charging Time
The Mahindra eKUV100 will be powered by a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack. The eKUV100 which has been developed keeping in mind the requirements of fleet owners is expected to run up to 150 km on a single charge. With fast charging available, this battery pack will be able to charge up to 80% within an hour. Without it, the car will take around 6 hours to charge fully.
The eKUV100 will come with features like a touchscreen infotainment system, power steering, steering wheel with multimedia-control buttons, ABS with Brake Assist, keyless entry, rear parking sensors and driver airbag. A semi-digital instrument cluster that shows range details will also be present.
Launch & Pricing
The launch of the eKUV100 is expected to be anytime soon with the latest spy shots revealing the possibility of the same. Although the pricing is not available yet, we expect Mahindra to keep the pricing very competitive, somewhere around Rs 10 Lakh.
