The electric kuv100 will be mehindra’s third offering in the electric passenger vehicle segment.
Mahindra will launch an electrified version of the kuv100 by the end of 2018 known as e kuv 100. It is said by the managing director Pawan Goenka of Mahindra and Mahindra at the launch of the kuv100 facelife in mumbai.

Infact, the CEO of Mahindra electric Mahesh Babu revealed that the eKUV100 would have a range of about 350 kms a top speed of 186 kph and a 0 to 100 kpt timing of just 9 seconds.
But one thing is sure that Mahindra will b ready and will have electric varients in all our SUVs, with the first electric Kuv100 to be introduced in this year. The technology for its next generation EVs is readying by Mahindra and had revealed earlier this year that it is developing electric powertrains with power outputs ranging from 41 to 204 hp. With the use of higher capacity batteries the driving range of its EVs is expected to get a boost as well.
Currently, Mahindra company is the only manufacturer to offer electric cars in India. However, the company expects EV prices to drop by 20 percent in the next two years as a higher localisation of battery production and power electronics will help ease manufacturing costs. It remains to be seen whether this will have a favourable impact on the KUV 100 electric ‘s price when it launches at the end of this year.
