Mahindra Reva Allies With Carzonrent To Provide Electric Cars on Rent

By Mukul Sarkar

Mahindra Reva, part of the USD 16.2 billion (INR 100723 crore) Mahindra Group and Carzonrent, torch bearers in Cab Rental Industry has formed a calculated conglomerate to introduce first-of- its kind Electric Vehicle in the Self Drive category in India.

Carzonrent will deliver Mahindra e 2 o for Self-drive in New Delhi, Bengaluru and Mumbai at most economical price ever. Each city will possess a fleet size of five e 2 o’s to initiate with and the service will be enlarged across all metropolitan cities.

In a maiden such effort, Mahindra Reva and Carzonrent have become partners to alter the on-ground mobility segment in the country. In this alarming rate of increase in pollution and rising fuel prices, this initiative will encourage eco-friendly travel in metropolitan cities. The joint venture also enhances the Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure in India with over 100 charge points at prime locations in key cities. Charge points at convenient locations will be availed free of cost by the customers for Carzonrent’s Mahindra e2o Self Drive services.

Carzonrent plans to enhance the availability of Mahindra e2o to expand in multiple locations across the cities.

Despite the fact that the organised Self-drive market is still at its infant stage, the demand has been growing positively over the last couple of years with better roads, higher costs of chauffeurs and availability of navigation facility. Inclusion of e2o into the self-drive fleet has been initiated to utilise this huge potentially untapped market and make it cost-effective for the consumers.

Speaking on the association with Carzonrent, Chetan Maini, Chief Executive Officer, Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. Said: “Our association with Carzonrent will bring Mahindra e2o and the concept of ‘Mobility as a service’ together, giving customers an opportunity to realise the endless benefits associated with this innovative solution. We have observed that a 10 minutes test drive is not sufficient for customers to experience the convenience and benefits of an electric car.

Hence this association will allow customers to use the e2o for a few hours or days and get an insight into this new and exciting next generation hassle free mobility solution. As a leading electric vehicle manufacturer in the country, Mahindra Reva is committed to develop not just electric vehicles, but also an entire ecosystem of sustainable mobility service that will benefit society at large”.

Speaking on the occasion, Rajiv Kr Vij, Managing Director CEO, Carzonrent (I) Ltd. Said: “Carzonrent has always been in the forefront to re-define ground transportation industry in India and to offer innovative and global car rental services to Indian travellers. With the inclusion of Mahindra e2o in our self-drive fleet, we are bringing forth an eco-friendly initiative in the Indian travel market.

The automatic, wi-fi enabled e2o, with built in navigation system will trigger a new era of convenience. At one third the cost compared to other self-drive cars the e2o will be a game changer in the self-drive business model and will provide a complete new experience to the city commuters.”

Mahindra Reva had launched its future-ready, next generation all-electric, zero emission Mahindra e 2 o (powered by Reva) a few months back. The car is equipped with a fully automatic transmission with Boost Mode for quick acceleration and a range of 100 kms, making it a perfect companion for city driving. Mahindra e 2 o is a manifestation of Mahindra’s vision of the Future of Mobility, expressed by the 5C’s framework — Clean, Convenient, Connected, Clever and Cost Effective.

It also upgrades the Mahindra Group s efforts at redefining sustainable urbanization with the creation of an eco-system that includes mobility solutions along with other environment friendly innovations.

Carzonrent has been a pioneer in extending Self Drive services across major Indian cities along with inter-city, intra-city, outstation and international car rental services. Carzonrent has put up a comprehensive range of cars under these services and offers transparent pricing through its online booking engine and national reservation centre. The booking for Mahindra Reva for Self Drive can be pursued via Carzonrent national reservation centre by calling 0888 222 2222 or by log-in to
