Mahindra eVerito, India’s first all-Electric Sedan launched
Mahindra Electric, the electric mobility division of the USD 17.8 billion Mahindra Group, today announced the launch of its innovative new eVerito – the all-electric, zero-emissions sedan. The eVerito would be available in key cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Jaipur, and Nagpur with immediate effect. It will be priced at Rs. 9.50 lacs (ex showroom Delhi, for D2 variant, post state subsidy and FAME incentive).
Powered by the latest electric drivetrain technology from Mahindra Electric, the direct drive single speed transmission eVerito can be charged at home as well as quick charged in 1 hour and 45 minutes through fast charging technology. On a full charge, the Mahindra eVerito can travel for up to 110 kms (based on vehicle loading) and can achieve a top speed of 86 kmph.
Its running cost is an incredible Rs 1.15/km*. The eVerito also features Boost Mode and Telematics which include real time and immediate assistance wherever the vehicle may be. The eVerito is an embodiment of Mahindra’s vision of the ‘Future of Mobility’ which includes the framework of Green, Connected, Convenient and Cost Effective vehicle technology.
Speaking at the launch, Mr. Pravin Shah, President and Chief (Automotive), Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said,
As the pioneer of electric vehicles and integrated mobility solutions in India, it has always been our endeavor to make electric vehicles more accessible and the eVerito is the first electric sedan in our portfolio. With issues like environmental degradation, pollution-related challenges, climate change and energy security, there has never been a better time to switch to electric vehicles.
Further, with the FAME scheme the Government has already set in motion a conducive environment and hence we can expect faster adoption of electric vehicles in the country. We also appreciate the local subsidy offered by the Delhi Government for electric cars and expect other states to follow it. Going forward we have laid out a clear roadmap for the electrification of our range of vehicles to reduce emission and build an eco-system for electric mobility in India, at par with its foreign counterparts
added Mr. Shah.
According to Arvind Mathew, Chief Executive Officer, Mahindra Electric.
The eVerito is an innovative combination of advancements in automotive, electronics and information technology, paired with minimal running costs and zero tailpipe emissions. It is the perfect family car for intra city use. I also truly believe that each of us is responsible in our own way for being more sensitive toward the environment and should embrace new technologies that are green and sustainable. I am confident that India will make that paradigm shift in lifestyles – towards electric mobility solutions that are driven by progressive Government policies.
The eVerito will be available in 3 variants and is built to high standards of safety and reliability. It can be the preferred option for consumers looking to switch to clean, smart and economical personal mobility solutions. The Mahindra eVerito can be purchased from select Mahindra dealerships in key cities including New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Jaipur, and Nagpur.
About Mahindra Verito
Zero Emissions: Being an electric vehicle, eVerito has zero tail pipe emission, in fact it doesn’t even have a tailpipe. This means unlike many alternate fuel vehicles including CNG or Hybrids, the eVerito is completely emission free.
Regenerative Braking: Regenerative Braking is a highly efficient process that has been brought to India for the very first time by Mahindra Electric. It is a technology in which every time the brakes are applied, energy is recovered back into the motor, giving the vehicle an extra bit of charge, and in some cases a few extra kilometers of driving range.
Telematics: Telematics helps capture more than 190 vehicle performance parameters which enables remote monitoring and diagnostics. Customers receive monthly statistics on Charging Patterns, Distance Travelled, Co2 saved, ECO points earned, fuel saved, etc.
REVIVE: Revive® is a first in the world feature by Mahindra Electric. On the rare occasion that the car runs low on energy, Revive® can be activated to gain an extra 8 km of range, to help the user reach home or the nearest charging station.
Intelligent Energy Management System: The IEMS in eVerito calculates SOC (Status of Charge) and Distance to Empty, ensures optimum range, monitors battery voltage, current temperature and communicates with the Telematics gateway to create an external interface.
