In other words, the homegrown car manufacturer will focus more in the commercial cars segment than the private vehicles space. As per the statement, the director also underlined how important the pricing and acclaimed that with the eKUV, Mahindra will “break the price barrier with a sub-9-lakh SUV.” This affordable pricing is expected to bring the eKUV an advantage over other competitors in the fledging EV market.
This is not the first time Mahindra eKUV shows up at an Auto Expo. In fact, at the last Auto Expo which was held in 2018, Mahindra eKUV had made its debut under the near-production form. It takes Mahindra two years to finalize and ready this electric SUV to go on sale in the market. The delaying was caused by the market downturn last year.

He also claimed that the new electric SUV will deliver a decent range which is on par with other electric models in the market. With the XUV300 EV, Mahindra targets to bring a high range of around 300-400 km.
