Components India has announced that it has powered the Passive Keyless Entry
(PKE) System in Mahindra’s New Age XUV 500. In fact, Mahindra & Mahindra
Ltd. (M&M Ltd.), is the first Indian car manufacturer to implement the PKE
system in the country.
The PKE system consists of an
attractively designed key fob, backed by robust engineering to ensure the
highest levels of safety for the XUV50. This system also provides an Electronic
Steering Column Lock (ESCL) control via the PKE Control Unit and a Start Stop
Button with an integrated immobiliser.
When the driver approaches the car and pushes
the button on the door handle, the key, which is the identification device with
the driver, communicates instantly with the receiver in the PKE system. The
electronics identifies the driver as the authorised user and unlocks the door.
The engine can be started without the key ever leaving the driver’s pocket: one
push of the start/stop button is all it takes to deactivate the steering wheel
lock and start the engine.
According to Harikrishna
Khandavilli, India Location Head for Business Unit, Body & Security,
“Continental’s sophisticated electronics upgrades the familiar driver authorisation
system into a high-convenience Passive Start and Entry system. We are delighted
to supply our PKE System to Mahindra’s New Age XUV500, making this the first
time ever for such a system to be applied in a car manufactured by an Indian
