Mahindra has been working hard on building an electric vehicle (EV) platform for a while now. Post Reva’s acquisition, the company has rolled out the e2o hatchback and the e-Verito sedan in India. The company is also an active participant in the Formula E race. Moving forward, Mahindra intends on introducing an all-electric SUV in the country sometime by 2020.

Though not many details about the upcoming vehicle are known till now, it is likely that the Indian automaker might introduce a compact SUV considering the growing popularity of this particular segment in the country. Codenamed ‘S107’ the upcoming electric vehicle is expected to appeal to customers who are looking for a driving experience rather than just commuting needs. Moreover, the company intends on launching more electric-based products in the country at an affordable pricing to reach out to wider masses.

Speaking about it, Mahindra & Mahindra's CEO, Pravin Shah said, “We are looking at adding more SUVs as well as small commercial vehicle to our electric vehicle portfolio. The focus will be on offering more affordable electric vehicles for higher accessibility. Mahindra Reva will continue to address the range anxiety with continuous development.”

Owing to growing awareness regarding the rising pollution levels in the country, automakers like Maruti Suzuki have already introduced mild hybrid technology in its cars in India. Moving ahead, automakers like Hyundai and Ford have also been working along similar lines thereby indicating that future models might be introduced with cost-effective and greener mobility solutions.
