Mahindra e-Verito sedan to be launched officially tomorrow – 2nd June
Second electric car from Mahindra after e2O
Utility major Mahindra & Mahindra will finally launch the e-Verito sedan in the Indian market. The e-Verito was first showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo and also recently showcased at the FAME event in the capital city. The updated versions were also showcased at the 2014 and 2016 Auto expo.
The full electric sedan e-Vertio will be available in three trims similar to the diesel variant -: D2, D4 and D6.The e-Vertio is powered by the latest electric drive train from Mahindra Reva and it is a 100% zero emission, green vehicle. The electric sedan is powered by a 72 V 3-phase AC induction motor that produces a maximum of 30.5 kW (41 hp) and maximum torque of 91 Nm. The electric car is capable of a company-claimed top speed of 86 (+/-2) kmph.
In one charge, Mahindra eVerito can travel for up to 100 kms based on vehicle loading and can achieve a top speed of 86 kmph. It also comes with ECO drive mode and remote diagnostics which includes real time and immediate assistance no matter where you are.
The sedan can be charged at home and can also be quick charged in 2 hours through fast charging (top-end). One of the key features in the D6 variant is fast charge mode, which recharges the batteries in just 2 hours, while the lower variants will take around 8 hours for a full charge.
The electric Verito will also get slightly revised beige interiors and low resistance tyres, a different instrument cluster.
The e-Verito will benefit from the FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India) scheme which offers incentives on electric and hybrid vehicles. Another benefit the car gets is the latest VAT reduction in the capital city on electric and hybrid cars. Both in total will help to reduce the overall price of the car and Mahindra could price the competitively to ensure higher volumes.
