Paying full attention to the electric mobility, Mahindra is growing to strength its electric vehicle portfolio. Globally, Mahindra wants to set itself up as a major electric vehicle manufacturer.
Now it is being said that the company can launch its concept car XUV Aero with an electric engine that was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. The XUV Aero did get a good response at the 2016 Auto Expo.
At present, Mahindra has two electric engines – 48 volts and 72 volts. If the electric engine is fitted in the XUV Aero, then it is possible that the engine will be of 380 volts. As a matter of fact, Mahindra is working very hard on this type of engine. Later, the company can use this engine for its other SUVs.
When, the XUV Aero had been showcased by the company at the 2016 Auto Expo, it was equipped with a 2.2- liter diesel engine which produced 210 PS of power and 470 Nm of torque. The electric engine which is being made by Mahindra, may also give the same power. And its range can be more than 200 - 300 kilometers.
Mahindra is also working on a plan to develop the new electric engine locally and it is expected that the cost of the motor controller, system integration and battery technology will be reduced. And people will be able to afford this car easily.
