Mahindra Electric seems to have decided to put an end to the journey of the two-door version of its electric car e2o in India. While the company has not confirmed it yet, emerging reports suggest that the e2o could have been discontinued in the market as it is no longer shown on the website.
Mahindra could have pulled out the e2o two-door electric car from the Indian market, while it may continue to be exported, suggests Autocar India in a report. In India, Mahindra Electra has recently added a four-door version of the model, called the e2o Plus. This could have shown the door to its smaller sibling in India. However, the sales of the model are likely to be continued until the stock lasts.
Mahindra launched the e2o in India in 2013. It is powered by an electric motor that is driven by 48-volt lithium-ion batteries, which can generate 19k of power at 3,750rpm and 53.9Nm of torque at 0-3,000rpm. The e2o has a top speed of 81kmph.
Mahindra's new e2o Plus, the four-door version of the e2o, has been priced at Rs 5.46 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi, post state subsidy and FAME incentive). The e2o Plus can travel up to 140 km on a full charge and can be charged in 90 minutes. It comes with features such as remote diagnostics through telematics, connectivity through a smartphone app, new infotainment system, regenerative braking and Hill Hold control automated messages, among others.
