The Mahindra Reva e2o could get a power steering wheel and 4 doors

The Indian auto major Mahindra & Mahindra is very optimistic about its all green electric vehicles’ success that the company is preparing for the new future. The Indian car market is still not ready to accept the green cars no matter how convenient and practical they are becoming, but home bred car major Mahindra believes that the Indian consumers are conscious but the need of the eco-friendly cars and their attitude towards the green cars will change in the future. Mahindra & Mahindra is in fact ready with a slew of electric models of its popular cars, however the Indian carmaker is yet not ready to launch them in India owing to the dull sentiments of the Indian towards the battery electric cars. The very capable Mahindra e2o is also not selling as per the company’s expectations and the company is doing everything possible to increase the sales of the electric hatchback.

As per the new reports, Mahindra & Mahindra is contemplating to give some changes and new features to the e2o. The company could introduce a new variant of the e2o along with a power steering wheel in the coming few months’ time.

According to the reports Mahindra is considering to endow an electric power steering wheel on the e2o, as some of e2o owners have complained to the company about the steering wheel of the battery electric vehicle to be feeling heavy when the car runs at low speeds. The new variant of the e2o will certainly feel much more convenient with the incorporation of a power steering as well as some other new features.

The reports have suggested that the Indian car major is very serious about the high quality and technical advanced aspects of the e2o and thus has taken its customers’ feedback regarding the e2o also very seriously. Depending on the customers’ feedback and their requirement of a light feel and convenient steering system in the e2o, Mahindra is ready to introduce a power steering wheel in the new e2o variant and is confident about making the customers happy.

Despite the low sales of the e2o, Mahindra is not thinking twice to update the e2o. However, the addition of the power steering wheel and other features will add to the overall value of the e2o, and this might even drive sales for the electric car.

It has come into light that Mahindra is also working on a 4-door variant of the e2o. This 4-door variant may be the one fitted with the power steering wheel and could also be because of the customers’ feedback. The 4-door e2o will make access to the rear seats easier and more comfortable as against the current model. With the added rear doors, even elderly passengers would easily access the e2o’s rear seats.

Mahindra Reva launched the e2o in March last year powered by an electric motor and 48 volt lithium-ion battery pack. The car offers a range of around 100kms and takes about 5 hours to fully charge its battery.

The Mahindra S101 test prototype model gets spied once again

The upcoming highly awaited Mahindra S101 compact SUV has been already spied a number of times before, with the more recent ones revealing some of its interior features. The S101 has again been caught by the spy shutterbugs and this time around, the spy pictures reveal some more interesting bits of details on the upcoming vehicle.

Mahindra S101 spy pic caught

Mahindra S101 spy pic caught

On several occasions, it has been observed that the Mahindra S101 test mules are testing along with dummy headlamps. The dummy headlights are often simply bolted on and look scruffy. However in the recent spy pictures, one can notice the S101 is testing with an unusual bob that is perched much higher above where the vehicle’s headlamps should actually be.

An experienced eye can figure out that the Mahindra S101’s test prototype model looks as if it has been inspired by the Range Rover Evoque. The test mule’s headlight assembly seems to be strangely similar to the upswept, slim and tapering headlight enclosures of the Evoque. Are the Mahindra’s designers actually thinking to create something drawing inspiration from the Evoque? Moreover, even when the S101 always gets spotted with full heavy camouflaged, it does appear that the compact vehicle’s overall profile somehow bears some sort of similarity to the Range Rover Evoque. For instance, the vehicle’s slopping roofline and the prominent window line that rises up a bit upwards all seem to be similar to that of the Evoque.

However, while the front and the side profiles of the upcoming Mahindra S101 seem to be really stylish and premium, the vehicle’s rear profile looks like it has been worked on in a real jiffy. The rather chubby and non proportionate rear part seems to be a misfit with the rest of the car. While the front end of Mahindra S101’s test mule from even under the heavy veils appears to be very aggressive and menacing, the rear end seems to be pretty boring and bulky. Moreover, the tail lights also seem to be equally boring and do nothing to salvage the rear styling. Will the Mahindra’s engineers continue with this rear design or will it get fine tuned further? This remains a big question still now.

Even though the much talked about Mahindra S101 compact SUV has been getting constantly spied for quite a long time now, the vehicle never revealed any definite design language. However, recently it seems to be getting closer to the final production ready model. We surely hope that Mahindra certainly does a better job at the rear side of the S101, as it is the expected primary upcoming rival of the very successful and stylish Ford EcoSport.

Mahindra is hoped to roll out an aggressively styled monocoque compact SUV. The rumor mills are spinning about saying that the Mahindra S101 might be christened as the XUV300, thus it will be a placed under the larger XUV500. The Mahindra S101 is speculated to be powered by a newly developed 1.2 liter petrol mill as well as diesel engine.

The all-new 2016 Mahindra Bolero gets spotted again

The Indian utility space ruler, the Mahindra Bolero’s next-gen version is testing at full swing, implying that the vehicle could launch in India sooner than what was though earlier. The all new Bolero was earlier expected to launch sometime in the year 2016. However, now given the high frequency of the vehicle’s test on the roads, it is though that the 2016 Bolero could launch in India by the end of next year.

Mahindra Bolero Special Edition

The new Bolero is codenamed as the project U301 and would be launching this time around in two length versions, namely the regular full-sized body length and a new sub 4 meter version. Recently, the smaller sub 4 meter version of the Bolero has been getting spotted several times. Mahindra is working on a sub-4 meter compact version of the popular Bolero in order to tap the very lucrative segment of the compact utility vehicles, and also to avail the excise duty benefits that the Indian government offers for the sub-4 meter vehicles.

The most recent spy shots of the all new 2016 Bolero point out that the next-gen model of the MUV will be following Mahindra’s patent front face styling with a toothy grille. The spare wheel of the vehicle will also continue to be mounted on its tail gate as usual. The new Mahindra Bolero compact MUV is tall and wide and should also have great street presence when compared against the other compact vehicles such as hatchbacks as well compact sedans.

The under 4 meter baby Bolero will be aiming to lure in the personal car consumers as a lifestyle utility vehicle that will be a better choice for those who wish to upgrade to a larger vehicles from the hatchback as well as compact sedans. On the other hand, the U301 Bolero which is a full sized version will have a longer than 4 meters body style and will continue to attract the current Bolero lovers, including the taxi and tour operators.

It is being speculated that the compact Bolero may borrow the Quanto’s engine that is a 1.5 liter 3 cylinder diesel engine with twin turbochargers. This compact engine on the U301 Bolero compact will also help mark the MUV totally classified as a compact vehicle and enable its tax benefits.

The all new Bolero will be using a hydroformed strengthened body chassis which will make it lighter and more performance oriented. Moreover, the excise duty benefits will enable Mahindra to price the U301 Bolero very aggressively making it a more attractive choice for the Indian utility vehicle buyers.

The Mahindra Bolero has been an iconic vehicle for the Indian utility vehicle leader. The Bolero has been present in the Indian market for around 14 years and it remains to be the top selling utility vehicle in the country with its all time popularity intact. The all new Mahindra Bolero with its new design and features updates is expected to take the vehicle’s popularity to a new high.

Top 2 SUVs that never failed Mahindra

Mahindra & Mahindra is a company who needs no introduction. It has established itself firmly on the Indian grounds in all these years. Each and every part of an automobile company is responsible for its successful career in any automobile market. And when they work together they produce reliable, durable, consistent and mind blowing vehicles, for example Mahindra. It is well known to have all these qualities in its products. Every vehicle that Mahindra has ever manufactured has helped it to move higher in the Indian market. But there are two SUVs which have never let Mahindra down- the Mahindra Bolero and the Mahindra Scorpio.

Mahindra Bolero Facelift Rear

Mahindra Bolero was launched around 13 years ago in the domestic market. It was targeted mostly for the rural areas of the country but who knew that it would become a hit in the urban market as well. Mahindra Bolero was even used by the Govt. Officials. It had that presence and sheer power. The Bolero when launched, just like any other vehicle, had flaws which Mahindra got rid of when it launched a new variant of it which included some really striking cosmetic changes with new colour combinations and also the interiors of the Bolero were taken to the next level. Another major change in the new variant of the Bolero was the engine. Mahindra installed a new in-house mill in the Bolero which was a 2.5L turbocharged diesel engine which produces 72 bhp of max power mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. Mahindra Bolero is still selling in good numbers across the country and we hope that it will continue to do so.

The other SUV which we were talking about is the Mahindra Scorpio. This vehicle completely turned the market upside down when it first came here. The looks of the Scorpio was refreshing and so was the size. The huge tyres and the mighty powerful engine were toppings to the dish. It didn’t take long for the Indians to start craving for this SUV and soon we could see numerous Scorpios ruling the Indian roads. Mahindra has evolved the Scorpio in all these years. Now, it is powered by a 2.2 litre mHawk turbocharged diesel engine which produces around 120 hp. The Scorpio is not just a SUV, it has now become a status symbol. When it comes out on the roads it demands attention and other cars have to give way to it, respectfully.

Mahindra Scorpio and Mahindra Bolero, both of them are still being sold in good numbers. Although, there are new competitors in the market but the trust and faith of the people which Mahindra has earned in all its years in our country is not a joke. No matter how many years would go by and how many new SUVs would enter the market, the Scorpio and Bolero have already reserved their safe place in the hearts and minds of the people. The will always remain the game changer of their segment in the Indian car market and also for Mahindra.

Mahindra Verito Vibe vs Maruti Suzuki Swift vs Hyundai Grand i10

In order to dominate the Indian car market, an automobile maker has to have a good compact car for the people. Many companies like Maruti Suzuki- made Swift, Hyundai- produced Grand i10, and etc opted for this method and benefited from it. While others did try but couldn’t achieve the same (Mahindra produced the Verito Vibe).

Mahindra Verito Vibe launched in india

Mahindra Verito Vibe

Mahindra is well known for its reliable, durable and strong SUVs and MPVs. The company has achieved success with its Scorpio and Bolero. A few years ago, Mahindra tried their hand in the compact cars and produced the Mahindra Verito Vibe. This car was exactly the same as the Mahindra Verito sedan expect it had been cut down to fit into the compact car segment. The Vibe wasn’t a looker and neither was the Verito. It didn’t has a symmetrical design and it felt like it was designed by two different people. The cabin of the Vibe was simple with nothing which would take away your breath. The space was good for a compact car. Mahindra provided a boot lid which open up separately such that the rear windshield remains intact, which makes you do a lot of work in order to load up your luggage. The boot space is decent. The Vibe was powered only by a 1.5L diesel engine which performed pretty well in the city and gave some good mileage numbers. Mahindra tried to make a practical product but it failed at many factors. It still had much more to learn about compact cars.

Maruti Suzuki Swift is in the market for many years now and it shares a good part of it even today. Swift proved to be one of the top selling cars of Maruti. In fact, it became one of the top selling cars of India. It is available in two engine options, a petrol and a diesel. Both the engines performs very well in city as well as on the open roads. The Swift looks modern, dynamic and confident. Although, the latest model has big headlights which could take you while to digest. The interiors of the Swift are very comfortable and posh. The rear passengers does not have enough space and would be cramped. There is a decent boot space and overall the car is a nice package. We do not need to talk much about the Swift, it speaks for itself.

Hyundai came into the compact segment with its i10 years ago and a while back it launched a new avatar of i10 with some major changes and named it the Grand i10. As the name suggests, this car is really something. It not only looks a lot better than its predecessor it has tonnes of features which you wouldn’t find in any other car of this segment. Hyundai has done a great job here. Hyundai Grand i10 has got three engine options now, a diesel, and a petrol and recently, Hyundai launched a LPG variant too. Hyundai is also planning to launch an automatic model. The Grand i10 is a great car available in different variants to choose from depending up on your budget.
