Electric Vehicles or EVs are not just the flavour of the season anymore. All global carmakers have either an EV project of their own under development or have an alliance brewing with another manufacturer for the same. Korea’s SsangYong Motor is also looking at EV models in the immediate future. And it will rely on parent Mahindra for the electric powertrains it currently has no access to. In India, Mahindra has tried to establish first mover status for itself when it acquired Reva in 2010 and subsequently launched the e2o. And has since continued to invest in the space to develop competent electric solutions for its own use within the Group – as also for any potential supply to other OEMs. “We have announced that EV 2.0, which will be our next generation of EVs starting from March 2020 will have a new set of powertrains which will be a high voltage, high-performance powertrain which has a potential to give aspirational vehicles. So that powertrain is being developed and we are even going to supply it to SsangYong Motors in Korea.” says Mahesh Babu, CEO, Mahindra Electric.
