The new Premium variant of the Mahindra e2o comes with extended range of 120km and an electric power steering.
This latest variant is powered by a 3-phase induction motor that is accompanied by a 48V maintenance free lithium-ion battery.This motor can produce a maximum power of 25.47bhp at 3750rpm that results in generating a maximum torque of 53Nm between 0 to 3400rpm. On the other hand, it can achieve a top speed of 81 Kmph, which is good. This vehicle is now available with an increased mileage range of 120 kilometers (in one full charge). It takes 5 to 10 hours for a full charge from a standard 220V, 15 A socket, which seems to be rather incredible.
As part of the company’s ‘Goodbye Fuel, Hello Electric’ programme, in Delhi, the Mahindra e2o Premium is available at Rs 5.72 lakh (on road, Delhi) with a monthly energy fee of Rs 2,999 which will allow the customer to drive about 50,000km for a period of five years.
The company claims to have installed about 300 charging stations across major cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Pune, and hopes to add another 100 by the end of this year.
Besides this, Mahindra Electric Vehicles is also developing electric and hybrid variants of other Mahindra vehicles like the Mahindra Verito sedan and the popular Mahindra Maxximo commercial vehicle, which are expected to be introduced within a year’s time.
