With a full automatic boost mode for quick acceleration and a range of 100 km (80km old Reva) the e2o is now a far more practical all-electric vehicle for city conditions

 

 

Mahindra e2O launched

 

 

Since acquiring the Reva Electric Company back in 2010 Mahindra has been busy reengineering the country’s first and only indigenously built road going EV, better known as the Reva into something more than what so far has been merely looked upon as a valiant effort with unimpressive results.

 

Closely resembling what Mahindra has been teasing us as the Mahindra Reva NXR over the past year has taken production form as the new Mahindra e2o that was unveiled at India Gate, New  Delhi amidst the country’s massive extended automotive fraternity. The exact scale of the e2o’s evolution from the original Reva EV appears to be a massive one and this next-generation all-electric from the house of Mahindra has clearly been built with many considerations in mind (Read : Mahindra e2o First  Drive).

 

 

Mahindra e2O battery pack

 

 

Powered by 48V maintenance-free lithium-ion batteries and a 3 Phase induction electric motor the Mahindra e2o produces 19kW@3,750 rpm and 53Nm torque between 0-3400rpm. The two door hatchback has a top speed of 80 km/h; it takes 5 hours to completely charge its batteries and just an hour to charge it enough for 20 km range.


With a full automatic boost mode for quick acceleration and a range of 100 km (80km old Reva) the e2o is now a far more practical city vehicle. Charging the e2o will be a particularly hassle free affair considering it can draw power from 15A power socket available in any home.
