Mahindra’s tech team has registered yet another domain name, www.mahindrakuv100.com. Though the website is still not functional, the fact that Mahindra has registered the name, is reason enough to believe that it could be used as the name of one of their upcoming cars.
Speaking about upcoming cars from Mahindra, it is the S101 compact SUV which is next in line to be launched from the Indian UV maker. To become the first Mahindra UV to be offered with a petrol engine, Mahindra has confirmed S101 will be launched this year. Spied on test across India, Mahindra S101 looks more of a hatchback, rather than an SUV. As per insider’s, it will be the best looking Mahindra car till date.
But, there has been no official word on what it will be called. Last week, we had reported that Mahindra S101 compact SUV could be named XUV100, as the company had registered the domain name www.mahindraxuv100.com. This only seemed logical as their flagship SUV is called XUV500. But, now a leaked logo shouts that it is not going to be called XUV100, but KUV100. On cross checking, it is confirmed that the domain name www.mahindraKUV100.com belongs to Mahindra Group.
Expected to be priced in the under INR 5 lakh range, Mahindra S101 is a very important car for the company. Not only it will be the cheapest Mahindra car, it will also help Mahindra compete with the likes of Maruti Swift, Volkswagen Polo, Hyundai i20, Fiat Punto, etc (hatchbacks which are priced in the same range).
If KUV100 is the name, what according to you the K stands for? Leave your responses in the comments section below.
