Another interesting electric car at the exhibit will be the Formula E racing car. As you may know, the company will field a team in the FIA Formula E Championship that kicks off in September 2014. About the same size as a traditional F3 car, the E racer’s electric motor produces a maximum of 200kW (or about 270bhp). You’ll be able to take a closer look at Mahindra’s silent rocket at the Auto Expo.
However, the carmaker will not be showing the facelifted Scorpio at the Auto Expo, instead there will be a near-production-ready version of the XUV500 with enhanced hybrid technology. Mahindra-owned SsangYong will also have a concept of its own in the form of the LIV-1. LIV is short for ‘Limitless Interface Vehicle’ and it gets a four-wheel drive system that’s controlled by an interface. The LIV-1 is big and bold and it could preview what the next Rexton will look like. Also headed for the Auto Expo is the Korando Tourismo MPV. While not the prettiest of vehicles, it’s got a grand total of 11 seats so it should manage to generate quite some interest.
