The Mahindra GenZe 2.0 electric scooter targets young urban commuters.

Coming to the GenZe 2.0, the pure electric scooter which is designed and manufactured in the US would be here to gather public opinion. The futuristic runabout targets young and tech-savvy urban commuters. The scooter’s exposed aluminium chassis, LED headlights, 7-inch touchscreen instrument console powertrain management functions, disc brake at each wheel and a storage compartment with 12V power socket make it a practical and environment friendly commuter.

The GenZe 2.0 is powered by a hub-mounted electric motor which derives electricity from a removable 1.6 KWh battery which can be charged through a common 110 V wall socket. The battery is claimed to take 3.5 hours to attain 100% charge and gives the scooter a range of 48 km. Top speed stands at 48 kmph.

Considering that the GenZe 2.0 is priced at USD 2,999 (over INR 2 lakhs), it’s not likely to be sold in India anytime soon.
