Continental Automotive Components India announced that it has powered the Passive Keyless Entry (PKE) System in the New Age Mahindra XUV 500. The PKE system consists of a key fob, backed by engineering to ensure the safety for the XUV500. This system also provides an Electronic Steering Column Lock (ESCL) control via the PKE Control Unit and a Start Stop Button with an integrated immobilizer. Mahindra & Mahindra is the first Indian car manufacturer to implement the PKE system in the country.

When the driver approaches the car and pushes the button on the door handle, the key, which is the identification device with the driver, communicates instantly with the receiver in the PKE system. The electronics identifies the driver as the authorized user and unlocks the door. The engine can be started without the key ever leaving the driver’s pocket: one push of the start/stop button is all it takes to deactivate the steering wheel lock and start the engine.
