Mahindra Going Electric-Only In UK
Mahindra, which recently launched the Mahindra e2o in the United Kingdom, plans to focus specifically on electric drive in its beachhead for Europe.
The Indian manufacturer is also preparing an electric two-wheeler and more EVs in the future “with expectations to deliver it into mainstream products in the next two to three years“, in addition to its participation in the Formula E.
Mahindra electric boss Arvind Mathew said:
“We are only positioning the UK for electric products, and we consider the UK our beachhead in Europe. We have no intention to sell other cars.”
On the other hand Ssangyong, which also belongs to Mahindra, will be offering more traditional cars.
Mahindra automotive chief Pravin Shah added:
“There are no concrete plans to introduce internal combustion engines to the UK under the Mahindra brand. We are very happy with the Ssangyong brand in the UK and the latest model, the Tivoli, has been very well received.”
