In design, the eKUV100 is quite identical to the petrol variant but with subtle changes in the front fascia, rear, and alloys. It was one of the most anticipated electric vehicles launches this year and it will be fascinating to see how other EV manufacturers react to the launch. We expect Mahindra eKUV100 electric to get good traction among the Indian consumer who is interested in purchasing an electric vehicle which is good in features and priced below Rs 10 lakhs.
