The vehicle is based on the KUV100, but it is powered by a battery package instead of an ICE. The e-KUV 100 is claimed to have a range of 350 km per charge. The vehicle can accelerate from a standstill to 100 kmph in just 9 seconds and can reach a maximum speed of 186 kmph. Once launched, it will become one of the most affordable electric vehicles in India.
