Mahindra to launch a new electric sedan and a new electric SUV in India

Currently, Mahindra & Mahindra, the popular Indian passenger car manufacturer, has two electric vehicles (EVs) in its product portfolio – Mahindra e2O Plus and Mahindra e-Verito. In addition to this, the company will also launch the Mahindra e-KUV100 that made its debut at the Auto Expo 2018. A new report reveals that the company is also planning to come up with a pure electric sedan and an electric SUV in the future.

The upcoming Mahindra electric sedan will be positioned above the e-Verito. It will be built on the company’s new MESMA (Mahindra Electric Scalable Modular Architecture) platform that will also underpin many other upcoming electric models. Powering the upcoming new Mahindra electric sedan will be a 50 kW electric motor that will get its juice from a 380-volt NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) battery pack. The upcoming Mahindra electric sedan will have a top speed of roughly 110 kmph along with a range of 156 KMs.

The upcoming Mahindra electric SUV will be also based on the MESMA platform. It will come with the same 380-volt NMC battery pack. However, it will boast of the most powerful electric powertrain in the company’s line-up of electric motors. The upcoming SUV will have a 90 kW electric motor that will propel this SUV to a top speed of 150 kmph. The SUV will have a range of roughly 250 KMs.

While more details aren’t available at the moment, the upcoming electric SUV will probably look like the Mahindra XUV Aero concept that made its debut a few years ago. Mahindra is bullish on its plans of coming up with an entire range of electric cars for the fast-changing Indian car market. It also plans to introduce a range of EVs in the commercial vehicle market. The company has already confirmed its plans of launching two electric buses, one with a range of 100 KMs and other with a range of 150 KMs on a fully-charged battery pack.
