UV giant Mahindra will soon launch the AMT equipped diesel variant of its micro-SUV, KUV100 in the country. The company had mentioned that an AMT-equipped diesel variant of the micro-SUV was in the making at the launch of KUV100 NXT last year in October. According to media reports, Mahindra will launch the KUV100 NXT with an AMT gearbox in diesel variant, whereas the petrol version will continue to be offered with the manual unit. Besides, the company will ostensibly update the KUV100 range to abide by the upcoming crash test norms that will be implemented from October 2019.

The exiting KUV100 is available with two engine options, 1.2-litre petrol and 1.2-litre oil burner. In terms of power, the petrol engine makes maximum power of 81 bhp opposed to the diesel unit which puts out 76 bhp. Mahindra is said to be working on these engines to make it compatible with the upcoming BS VI norms that will come into effect from 2020.

 Aside from an AMT equipped diesel variant, Mahindra has also hinted at introducing an electric version of the micro-SUV in future. The company had even displayed the eKUV100 at the 2018 Auto Expo earlier this year in February.

Mechanics on the eKUV100 included the 30kW motor and a lithium-ion battery pack. This is the same set-up that is offered with the eVerito and is claimed to offer 140 km of range. Moreover, the electric set-up is also expected to come with fast charging, with 80 per cent of the battery being charged within an hour’s time or little less. Though, Mahindra had mentioned at the Expo that eKUV100 could feature an all-new electric set-up when it is finally launched in India. As for the standard model, it goes squarely against Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and Tata Nexon in the subcompact SUV segment.
