However, Mahindra Reva doesn’t have any plans of building its own electric SUV. “An electric SUV is possible, but there’s no such plan at this point,” said a senior company official.
M&M’s engineers are also exploring the possibilty of utilising the advantages offered by Mahindra Reva for application in its two-wheeler sectors. Mahindra 2-Wheelers is also working on developing an electric two-wheeler. “That you will see one (electric two-wheeler) is certain,” said Anand Mahindra, chairman, M&M, in July 2012, without commiting to a timeline of its introduction.
