As the countdown to the upcoming Auto Expo dwindles, automotive manufacturers have started are revealing what their stalls will showcase. The latest manufacturer to join the bandwagon is Mahindra & Mahindra. The manufacturer has announced that it will be previewing an electric vehicle at the Auto Expo. The vehicle will be showcased to gauge public reaction and make any additions or changes to the vehicle ahead of its scheduled 2010 end launch. M&M will also be launching its new mini truck christened Maxximo at the Auto Expo.
While speaking to the media, the President of Automotive Sector at M&M, Pawan Goenka, confirmed that the manufacturer will be showcasing an electric vehicle at the Auto Expo which will be launched towards the end of 2010. He further said that the company has developed a hydrogen and CNG powered vehicle which could be launched in the 12-18 months depending on the infrastructure. Commenting about the launch of the new mini-truck Goenka revealed that Maxximo has been designed and developed on the basis of extensive customer feedback.
As of now the manufacturer has not released any information on whether their electric vehicle will be an all new addition to their existing product portfolio or an electric engine powered Scorpio or Xylo. We believe that M&M’s new green vehicle will be an electric powered scooty.
