The Mahindra e2o 4-door electric car has been spotted testing near Bangalore once again just a few days ahead of its debut at the Auto Expo 2016. The new variant would be aiming to attract a wider audience base by promising better practicality than the existing 2-door version.
The EV market in India is almost non-existent and the e2o is the only zero emissions car to be on sale in India. However, with the Indian government’s move to offer incentives and subsidies for electric and hybrid vehicles through NEMMP 2020, things could change sooner than later.
As of now the 2-door e2o is positioned as a life style product rather than a practical environmental friendly solution for urban mobility. The 4-door variant with more space at the rear and an appeal of a family car would be playing in the volume oriented hatchback segment.
The 4-door electric city car is expected to borrow its hardware from the smaller e2o which has 25.5 hp and 53.9 Nm of torque on tap. Full charge can be attained in around 5 hours and the car travel over 100 km on a single charge.
