Mahindra designed GenZe as a multi-purpose scooter as it doesn’t come with pillion seat but instead the company offers soft fabric box or hard box options
Mahindra GenZe electric scooter has been spied in India undisguised for the first time. The scooter was spotted by Performance Factory in Pune. The GenZe is available only in the US market in three variants and the model spotted in India could be top-end GenZe 2.0f. Electric scooter is not a new thing in India and we already have lots of players in the market. But Mahindra GenZe is very different from others models sold locally.
The GenZe is built on aluminium monocoque chassis unlike the conventional frame with parts bolted on to it. The scooter also get a bigger front tyre for better stability and Mahindra has given disc brakes at the front and rear for better braking. The handle bars are placed little higher than usual and seats are wider. Mahindra designed GenZe as a multi-purpose scooter as it doesn’t come with pillion seat but instead the company offers soft fabric box or hard box options.
Mahindra GenZe is powered by removable 2kWh lithium ion battery producing 2 bhp of power and 100 Nm of torque enabling nimble acceleration. The GenZe top speed is limited to 48 kmph because of US laws but the model spied in India could have a higher top speed as we don’t have any speed limits for electric scooters. The range of GenZe is 56 km and it can be charged via a standard electric plug.
One of the main USP of GenZe scooter is that it comes with connected mobile application. Using the app, rider can monitor battery percentage, health of battery, lock the scooter remotely and run diagnosis before the ride. If any error appears, then the app will share details of the problem to GenZie technician remotely to solve the issue.
In India, GenZe won’t be so popular for personal use as it doesn’t have pillion seat but for commercial use the electric scooter is a perfect alternative to current bikes as it comes with factory fitted storage bay. The GenZe is a very expensive scooter and this could be one of the reasons why Mahindra won’t launch this electric scooter in India. But with new products entering in different segments, never say never!
