Bujji was developed with the help of the Mahindra Research Valley near Chennai. Propelling the rear spherical wheel are two Mahindra electric motors with a combined output of 125 bhp. It also gets a 47 kWh battery pack. The specially built vehicle can hit a top speed of 45 kmph. 

Bujji features a canopy, hub-less wheels and special-purpose tyres, which have been provided by Ceat. The custom-built tyres are designed to handle the instant torque and cornering effort when going off-road. The tyres have the lowest aspect ratio, which improves the braking ability thanks to a wider profile and larger rim fitment. The block design pattern on the tyres also ensures better traction, while the steel braided rubber offers better stability and puncture resistance.
