Mahindra Electric is all geared up to launch the four-door version of its small electric hatchback e2o in India soon. Named as e2oPlus, the updated version of the e2o, which is formerly known as Reva e2o, has been teased by the company in a new image.
The auto enthusiasts in the country are already familiar with the four-door version of the e2o as the model has made numerous appearances on the web through spy images. The new avatar of the electric hatchback e2o is expected to be essentially an elongated version of the two-door version of the car. Mahindra has been putting the e2oPlus through rigorous testing on the Indian roads for quite a long time now.
As far as the changes in the new version of the electric car are concerned, it is likely to get a refreshed front end with new grille and there could be minor changes in the rear as well. The car will get elongated rear end to accommodate two additional doors and will now get Mahindra's signature vertical grille at the front
Mahindra Reva e2o is currently powered by an electric motor that is driven by 48-volt lithium-ion batteries, which can generate 19kW of power at 3,750rpm and 53.9Nm of torque at 0-3,000rpm. Manufactured at the company's Bangalore plant, Reva e2o has a top speed of 81kmph. Rumours are rife that the e2o 4-door version might also get a bigger battery.
Mahindra is expected to launch the new e2oPlus in October.
