Mahindra Reva has declared that it is going to roll out e2o on 18th March 2013 in New Delhi. Mahindra Reva, a part of the US $15.9 billion Mahindra Group, had unveiled e2o at the 11th Auto Expo held in Pragati Maidan, New Delhi in 2012. The e2o is the epitome of Mahindra’s vision of the “Future of Mobility”.
Commenting on the announcement, Dr Pawan Goenka, President, Automotive & Farm Equipment Sectors, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd said, “We are delighted to announce the launch of the e2o, which will mark a significant milestone in Mahindra’s automotive journey. Electric vehicles today epitomize clean and green driving and Mahindra wants to take the lead in developing this segment and its surrounding eco system. We are humbled with the kind of feedback we have received so far on the e2o, which reaffirms our conviction to remain committed and invested in this segment.”
Dr Goenka further added, “We sincerely hope that such an initiative will find the desired support and incentives from all governmental agencies that will support us in this journey of providing clean mobility solutions.”
The Mahindra e2o is the next generation global electric vehicle built on the capability of using the futuristic ecosystem of Sun2Car to derive energy from the Sun for urban mobility, while protecting and preserving the environment. The car will use next generation Lithium Ion batteries and will have a range of 100 km on a full charge, which is suitable for most urban commuters today. The e2o will enable users to carry out self fueling through any 15 amp plug point at home or at their workplace. This can be further augmented with the help of Sun2Car solar technology.
The e2o will be produced at Mahindra Reva’s recently inaugurated production facility which is India’s first platinum certified automobile plant located at Bengaluru. It has a rated manufacturing capacity of 30,000 cars per annum.
