After Reva e2o, Mahindra is planning to launch Verito powered by electric motor. Reva e2o is four-seater car, which is powered by 3 Phase Induction Motor, producing 25.5 bhp of power at 3750 rpm and 53 Nm of torque @ 3400 rpm. Reva e2o is priced at 6 lakh ex-showroom.

Mahindra Verito Electric would be powered by motor producing 38.9 bhp of power, which is more powerful motor compared to e2o, is expected to give same mileage of 100km per charge. Car takes six hours to get fully charged.

Mahindra Verito Electric

Mahindra has already developed prototype of Mahindra Verito Electric. Company has invested 150 crores in upcoming electric vehicles, and Mahindra is trying electric versions on existing models, which also include commercial vehicles Gio and Maxximo.

Mahindra said, Verito is heavier car than e2o, some technology optimization is needed before launching Electric Verito. Mahindra would be ready with it with in a year time.

Electric vehicles are costly compared to fuel powered vehicles, Mahindra is waiting for response to Reva e2o and would be ready to launch Maxximo and Gio after that.

Also, our government is taking Electric vehicles alternative seriously. Delhi has announced 29 per cent subsidy on sales of electric vehicle, and Mahindra expect same from other states also. I think it is good to give subsidy on electric vehicles instead of Petrol and Gas.
