Rumour: Mahindra KUV100 NXT with AMT coming in 2018


According to a media report, Mahindra will soon offer an automatic transmission on both the petrol and diesel variants of the KUV100 NXT. The company is likely to introduce the KUV100 NXT with an AMT in 2018.

Mahindra recently launched the KUV100 facelift. The new model features updated styling with a dual-tone exterior option and a slightly reworked interior. Under the skin, the KUV100 NXT is identical to its predecessor except for minor suspension tweaks and NVH improvements. 

It is offered with a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine with 82 BHP and 115 Nm of torque and a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder diesel producing 77 BHP and 190 Nm. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The rumoured AMT will likely be based on the same 5-speed transmission. Mahindra currently offers the AMT gearbox on the TVU300.

Besides the KUV100 NXT AMT, Mahindra is also working on an all-electric version of the KUV100. It too is reportedly scheduled for launch in 2018.
