Mahindra unveils Korando E at Expo, year end launch expected

Indian utility major Mahindra & Mahindra has unveiled Mahindra Ssangyong Korando E, compact premium Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) by its Korean subsidiary at the 2012 Auto Expo in New Delhi. This is the second SUV by Ssangyong via Mahindra in India after Ssangyong Rexton, which is expected to be launched this year. The vehicle at display was the electric version of Korando E, although India will see the launch of a regular petrol or diesel by late this year. The powerful compact vehicle will challenge the likes of then launched Ford EcoSport and existing Tata Safari Storme. The Ssangyong Korando E is expected to be priced between Rs 13-15 Lakhs.
