Mahindra e2o Review

Man created ways to better living since the moment he discovered fire and invented the wheel. The most interesting part about existence is the way priorities change in regards to technological innovations. The pursuits of commutation took a turn from domestic animal run carts to motor vehicles considering the strain animals are put through and obviously the time taken by domestic transportation.

Eventually as the population increased and the motor vehicles became ubiquitous, the availability of petroleum products decreased which ultimately led to the search for new resources. Very few companies understood the gravity of the natural resources unavailability and even fewer actually did something to tackle it. In 1994, one such Indian company, Mani Group, rose to the automobile industry in joint venture with AEV LLC from USA, to create the country’s first EV which was aimed to provide best in the industry performance and a global appeal.

The company thus formed, Reva Electric Car Company was a successful effort towards innovation and performance. For an electric vehicle, it performed exceptionally well at surprisingly low costs. These efforts were soon recognised by another innovative company Mahindra and Mahindra.

The giant immediately bought a 55.2 per cent stake in the Reva stock and the brand soon became Mahindra Reva.

The manufacturing facilities of Mahindra Reva are equally environmental friendly by creating an ultra low carbon assembly plant which was certified platinum by the Indian Green Building Council. With state-of-the-art facilities and a constant thirst for innovation, the Reva-i model was launched first with a spread of 24 countries and counting. In UK, the Reva EV became known as the G-Wiz and it received a decent response for its innovative efforts. Over the years Mahindra Reva tried hard to create a product which would maintain the manufacturing costs at a low par so that the finished product could be economical while at the same time, creating a vehicle which had a great dynamics. After repeated concepts and years of innovation and design efforts, the company released a concept car at the 2009 Frankfurt Show named Mahindra Reva NXR.

It further developed the vehicle and created a commercial version, naming it e2o. The ‘e’ in the name stands for the energy from the sun which is largely clean and the letter ‘o’ refers to the oxygen which is considered the greatest source of life on the Earth. The ‘2’ is included as a conjunction so that the abbreviation would mean ‘a clean energy — to — have a better life’. The Lithium ion batteries used in the Mahindra e2o are of the latest generation, which offer better battery life. The expected battery life of a Mahindra e2o on full charge is 100 kilometers.

As the EV is designed specifically with city commuters as the targeted customers, the 100 kilometer capacity should remain apt for urban use.

The interesting and relieving feature of Mahindra e20 is the ease of utilising the charging facilities. Being charged through a 15 ampere plug point, the portability of e2o stands out as its speciality. This facility allows it to be charged at home or the workplace and practically any place that can provide a 15 amp charging point. Additionally there are charging stations designed especially for the EVs. Though the population density of EVs is not as high so as to accommodate enough charging stations, with increasing environmental concern and people stepping in for better ways of living, the dream of having an electric charging station with a density similar to that of its petrol counterpart does not seem too far fetched.

Mahindra was smart in understanding the increasing requirements of the automobile enthusiasts and customers alike and implemented the innovative solution set in the new e2o. Along with a dedicated performance it delivers as a car, it is also accessorised with all the comforts such as remote AC operations, an intelligent iEMS system and the regenerative braking and most importantly, a dedicated Reva Apps Store which can give a run time pleasurable experience to the tech savvy customers. All these efforts and the improved bodywork, give Mahindra e2o a better edge over the other electric vehicles in the world of automobiles. The e2o comes as a two door hatchback with a spacious seating for four passengers.

The EV is reminiscent of a coupe in the way the body is built, with front row of seats folded down for the rear passengers to step in. But it is superior to a coupe at least in terms of seating comfort. Taking into account the fragile body of initial variants, the new e2o has a best-in-class build which provides safety to the passenger as well as the vehicle as a whole.

Though the engine does not speak in the traditional automobile language such as displacement, capacity and the ilk, the parameters of an 81 kmph top speed and 53 Nm at 0 to 3400 rpm offer a promising product. Excellence, beauty, innovation and vision are a few words that best define this EV.
