There will come a time when electric vehicles become the predominate form of personal transportation. While Tesla makes news catering to the wealthy client, others (Nissan, Chevrolet and Volkswagen) build mid-level electric cars that are somewhat affordable.What about the entry-level electric car market?
Mahindra has that covered.
Mahindra has been the electric game for a while, the Mahindra e2o is the latest electric car for the massive Indian market. It can travel up to 140 kilometers on a full charge. A full charge from a depleted battery takes 9-hours on regular power or you can get a fast charger to give you about 90% in about 90 minutes. Yes, the e2o has a 19 kW (kilo-watt) electric motor that produces 25.5 BHP @ 3,750 rpm.
One of the fascinating aspect of the e2o is the way it’s built. Using a tube-frame underneath, the e2o is covered with PVC (plastic) panels. These panels are lightweight, dent resistant and come color-infused with color. Light scratches and scrapes will not discolor the panel, and it’s fairly easy to replace.
“The e2o is a clever little car. Gearless, noiseless, emission-less, it is the incredible electric car that delivers an astonishing driving experience. Sustainable and convenient, the e2o is leading the global charge to unearth an affordable and green car. Innovation-rich and city-ready, it is today’s path-breaking solution to tomorrow’s mobility needs. Sync it with your phone to get started!” – – Mahindra
