We get a look at India’s first zero-emission electric sedan

Mahindra Electric, the electric mobility division of the Mahindra Group, recently announced the launch of the all-electric eVerito. The drivetrain technology has been developed by Mahindra Electric, and the direct-drive single-speed transmission car can be fully charged in 8 hours and 45 minutes, as well as quick charged to 80 per cent in under two hours through fast-charging technology. Mahindra claim that on a full charge, the eVerito can travel for about 110 kilometres, subject to vehicle loading, and can achieve a top speed of 86 km/h. All this, and running costs of about Rs 1.12 per kilometre. The company also provides include real-time and immediate assistance wherever the vehicle may be. The eVerito boasts several features seen on electric and hybrid vehicles from all over the world, but many are firsts for India. These include regenerative braking, where the kinetic energy from the wheels is recovered while braking and stored as electric energy, and telematics to capture more than 190 vehicle performance parameters to enable remote monitoring and diagnostics. Mahindra has also developed a patented system called Revive, which is like an emergency reserve charge; this feature can be activated to gain an extra eight kilometres of range, to help users get home or to the nearest charging station in case of an emergency. The new eVerito also features a hill hold feature to prevent the car from rolling backwards on an incline.

Speaking at the launch, Pravin Shah, President and Chief (Automotive), Mahindra & Mahindra said, “As the pioneer of electric vehicles and integrated mobility solutions in India, it has always been our endeavour to make electric vehicles more accessible, and the eVerito is the first electric sedan in our portfolio. With issues like environmental degradation, pollution-related challenges, climate change and energy security, there has never been a better time to switch to electric vehicles. Further, with the FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles) scheme, the Government has already set in motion a conducive environment, and hence we can expect faster adoption of electric vehicles in the country. We also appreciate the local subsidy offered by the Delhi Government for electric cars and expect other states to follow it. Going forward we have laid out a clear roadmap for the electrification of our range of vehicles to reduce emission and build an eco-system for electric mobility in India, at par with its foreign counterparts.”

According to Arvind Mathew, Chief Executive Officer, Mahindra Electric. “The eVerito is an innovative combination of advancements in automotive, electronics and information technology, paired with minimal running costs and zero tailpipe emissions. It is the perfect family car for intra city use. I also truly believe that each of us is responsible in our own way for being more sensitive toward the environment and should embrace new technologies that are green and sustainable. I am confident that India will make that paradigm shift in lifestyles ­­— towards electric mobility solutions that are driven by progressive government policies.”

The eVerito will be available in 3 variants and is built to high standards of safety and reliability. It can be the preferred option for consumers looking to switch to clean, smart and economical personal mobility solutions. The Mahindra eVerito can be purchased from select Mahindra dealerships in key cities including New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Jaipur, and Nagpur.
