By Rahul

Mahindra Two-Wheelers is reportedly working on an all-electric version of their Mojo offering in India. Spy images of the electric Mahindra Mojo has been spotted outside a Bosch factory in Bangalore.

Although there are no details yet on the electric powertrain, the images do showcase certain differences from the standard version. As seen in the spy image, the Mahindra Mojo misses out on the exhaust system and the gear shifter, while the engine area is now fully covered. The images also showcase a belt drive system, which replaces the chain and sprocket system on the standard model.

Mahindra offers the Mojo in two variants: XT300 and UT300. However, the company has failed to make an impact in the 300cc segment.
