Mahindra Electric has announced that its electric vehicles, the e2o and e2o Plus, have contributed to a saving of 2,50,000kg worth of carbon dioxide emissions. This feat is equivalent to planting 25,000 new trees. Mahindra claims that the milestone showcases a more eco-friendly future for the country and encourages the Electric Mobility revolution.
Moreover, the milestone is also in line with the Indian government’s policy to become an all-electric nation by 2030. The CEO of Mahindra Electric, Mahesh Babu, claimed that the distance travelled by the electric cars is the equivalent of driving to Mars. The top-spec e2o Plus is powered by a 72V battery back, with a claimed range of 140km. The battery powers a motor with a peak output of 41hp and 91Nm. The lower spec variants come with a 48V battery. These models are built at Mahindra’s electric facility in Bengaluru and, at the moment, both e2o and the e2o Plus have no direct competition in India.
