Mahindra e-KUV100 revealed at the 2018 Auto Expo

A company backed by Nest co-founder Tony Fadell is taking Andy Rubin's startup to court.


The Mahindra e-KUV100 specs a cleaner design that goes with its eco-friendly nature. Without the motor’s need for cooling, the upper grille gets replaced by a similarly designed panel without any openings in the pure electric variant. The 6 vertical slats on it have blue accent, and so does the front fog lamp housing. The vital air intake’s upper portion is covered with a clean surface in grey colour and there are projector headlamps with blue accent in place of halogen headlamps.

On the sides, the Mahindra e-KUV100 stands out with blue accent on the alloy wheels, Mahindra Electric badge on the front guards and slim door mouldings. At the rear, there’s a grey tailgate garnish in the battery-powered variant. The interior design is the same as that of the Mahindra KUV100. Without going into details, Mahindra says that the Mahindra e-KUV100 offers a driving range of over 140 km and that its battery charges to 80 percentage in less than an hour using a fast charger. The company does mention of several technology features, though, such as remote diagnostics, cabin pre-cooling, location tracking and smartphone connectivity.
