Mahindra seems to be taking the electric mobility very seriously. The development and manufacturer of Mahindra Reva E2O is all set to launch their next all electric passenger car in form of e-Verito compact sedan, which is powered by a three phase 72V electric powertrain. The Indian auto manufacturer will launch the car on 2nd June, 2016.
Mahindra e-Verito is powered by an electric powertrain developed by Mahindra Reva, and the car comes as a zero emission vehicle, just like the E2O. The Mahindra e-Verito was first unveiled at the 2012 New Delhi Auto Expo. Power source for the car is a 72V three phase AC induction motor, which is capable to churns out 41 hp of peak power at 3500 rpm and 91 Nm of peak torque at 3000 rpm. Interestingly, the car is equipped with a fully automatic gearbox, which saves the hassle of pressing clutch pedal and shifting gear in the bumper to bumper traffic scenario in the cities. With a fully charged battery the Mahindra e-Verito can run up to 100 kilometers with a top speed of 86 kmph.
The car comes with a technology called ECO drive mode. Being an electric powered car the e-Verito makes little noise, therefore providing very comfortable and smoother driving experience. It also gets features like hill hold which enables the car to stay immovable in slopes for a few seconds. The battery can be charged in just 1.5 hours in the fast charged mode; while normally the battery needs around 8 hours to get fully charged. Like the Mahindra Reva E2O the e-Verito also features remote technology.
Design wise the car doesn’t boast very aesthetic look. The front fascia of the car looks exactly like the standard Verito sedan. The differences can be seen through the e-Verito badging. The letter ‘e’ is painted in green, which clearly indicates the emission free nature of the car. Dimensionally the e-Verito measures 4277 mm in length, 1740 mm in width, 1540 mm in height and 2630 mm of wheelbase. It runs on 185/70 R14 tubeless low rolling resistance tires. Turning radius for the car stands at 5.25 mm.
The braking duty is done by discs at the front while the rear sports drum brake. The car is expected to come in three trims which are D2, D4 and D6. The D6 will come equipped with fast charge mode. The Mahindra e-Verito will be priced around Rs. 8 lakh (ex showroom, New Delhi).
