Mahindra Is Now Exporting Peugeot-badged Electric Scooters To Europe


The E-Ludix is designed for urban commuting with a top speed of 45kph

 

  • A 3-hour charge gives you a claimed range of roughly 50km.
  • Charging is made easy thanks to a portable lithium-ion battery from Bosch.
  • Mahindra becomes the first Indian manufacturer to export electric scooters to Europe.

 

A vast majority of the electric two-wheelers sold across the world (including many of those sold in India) are Chinese-made. Now, however, India is set to make its mark on the industry, with Mahindra becoming the first Indian manufacturer to export electric two-wheelers to Europe.

Mahindra is manufacturing E-Ludix e-scooters at its Pithampur plant in Madhya Pradesh and then sending them to its Peugeot Motorcycles subsidiary in France. The E-Ludix features a 3kW electric motor and weighs just 85 kgs, giving it a top speed of 45kph. The range is approximately 50km, and it will take roughly three hours to fully charge the removable lithium-ion battery.

Since Mahindra & Mahindra bought a majority stake in Peugeot Motorcycles in 2015, things have regressed rather than progressed with the French manufacturer incurring cumulative losses of Rs 1,735 crores. If these India-made scooters are a commercial success, it should help turn Peugeot’s fortunes around while also establishing Mahindra as a competent manufacturer of electric two-wheelers.

A tweet by Anand Mahindra, Chairman of the Mahindra Group, hints at the fact that the company is keen to enter the electric two-wheeler industry in India sometime in the near future. With the company already manufacturing vehicles such as the E-Ludix for export, it shouldn’t be too long before we see it offering electric two-wheelers in India too.
