Mahindra is following the government’s target to make India an all-electric car runner. The company has arranged three EV launches in the country particularly in the passenger car segment along with two electric rickshaws and two electric buses in the commercial vehicles segment.
Among the three EVs ready for the passenger car market, two EVs will be an all-electric Sedan and SUV and third is the e-KUV100 which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2018. The electric SUV is expected to take a 380V (380-volt) Nickel Manganese Cobalt battery pack and use the base of the MESMA (Mahindra Electric Scalable Modular Architecture) platform. The 90 kW powertrain will be able to touch a maximum speed of 150 km/hr and 250 kms range.
On the other hand, the electric sedan is as well taking the MESMA platform and will be ranked above the e-Verito. The electric sedan as well takes a 380V NMC battery pack producing a peak power of 67 HP and providing 156 kms range. It touches the top speed of 110 km/hr.
