It does not have any direct rivals for now

The e-KUV100 puts out 54PS of power and 120Nm of torque.

Offers a range of 147km on a single charge.

Mahindra had already showcased the e-KUV100 in its near production-spec form at the 2018 Auto Expo. Sadly, it could not be launched owing to the challenging market conditions and the industrial slowdown in 2019. Now, the Indian carmaker has launched it at the ongoing Auto Expo 2020 at Rs 8.25 lakh (commercial) (ex-showroom Delhi).

The e-KUV100’s 15.9kWh battery pack supports fast-charging option that can juice up the battery by up to 80 per cent in just one hour. With this battery pack, the electric micro-SUV offers a range of 147km.

It is offered with connected car tech for features such as cabin precooling, location tracking, remote diagnostics, and monitoring the driving pattern of the driver as seen in the Auto Expo 2018’s version. Apart from this, it comes with standard safety features such as rear parking sensors, dual front airbags, front seatbelt alert, overspeeding alert, and ABS with EBD.

Mahindra has launched the e-KUV100 with a starting price of Rs 8.25 lakh (commercial) (ex-showroom Delhi). The same small EV will cost over Rs 12 lakh to a private buyer. If you’re a private buyer, the e-KUV100 could undercut the Tigor EV by around Rs 1 lakh for a price tag that sits somewhere around the Rs 11 lakh range. For now, the e-KUV100 does not have any direct rivals. Apart from the e-KUV100, Mahindra has also showcased the concepts of the XUV300 EV and XUV500 EV.
