Mahindra bought the KUV100 micro-SUV back in 2016 and since its launch, the car has been doing wonders in the domestic market. However, this could only last for a month or so and since then Mahindra has been trying really hard in order to boost the sales of the KUV100.
Currently, the Mahindra KUV100 is offered with four powertrain options which include petrol, diesel, CNG and much recently launched electric variant. Now, According to a leading publishing house, a test mule of the all-new Mahindra KUV100 with a CNG was spotted testing on India roads. As seen on the given images the test mule seemed to have been of a lower-end variant.
According to recent media reports, the 2020 Mahindra KUV100 CNG will continue to support the already existing mFalcon 1.2-litre petrol motor complaint to the stringent BS6 emission norms. As of now, the engine is capable of generating 82bhp with 115Nm of peak torque and comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
The all-new Mahindra KUV100 CNG is expected to hold an ARAI certified range 18.15 km/kg. Mahindra started a new genre of Micro-SUV with the KUV100 but the plan seems to have been failed miserably and with new entrants such as the Maruti Suzuki Ignis and the S-Presso, the overall segment hasn’t been able to pull in customers.
With that said Mahindra is also planning to bring in a new set of vehicles which might help the company revived its lost hope. As of the Mahindra’s new line-up will include the next-gen Thar, 2020 Mahindra Scorpio, next-gen Mahindra XUV500 due to launch this year.
