While the zero-emission version is expected to launch in 2019, AMT variants are likely to be launched early next year
Both AMT (automated manual transmission) and EV (electric vehicle) space aren’t new for the homegrown automaker. To keep costs in check, the AMT unit could be a retuned version of the one that’s found on the TUV300. As far as the EV tech is concerned, the KUV100 NXT will borrow it from its siblings – the e2o Plus and the eVerito. However, it remains to be seen which state of tune the electric KUV100 gets. But if we had to take a calculated guess, it is likely to get the 210Ah battery pack which will power a 41PS/91Nm electric motor.Mahindra has had the first comer’s advantage in the EV space for quite a while now. However, it will soon be joined by the country’s largest carmaker, Maruti Suzuki.
