Mahindra is hoping that a successful run with the GenZe brand in the US would eventually lead to successful introduction of its 4 wheelers in the future.

Mahindra GenZe 2.0 electric scooter is all set to venture in to the US market starting with California, Oregon and Michigan states. If the initial operations proceed as per expectations, the Indian-automaker would expand GenZe’s reach to more states in America and even establish presence in Europe.

The California-based wholly owned subsidiary of Mahindra & Mahindra has its engineering centre in Michigan. The GenZe 2.0 electric scooter targets short distance commuters like college students and young professionals.

The funky two wheeler is based on an aluminium exoskeleton chassis with minimal body work. Salient features include LED headlights, an underseat storage space with a charging socket that is compatible with all electronic gadgets including laptops, a 7-inch Cruise-Connect touchscreen instrument console, removable Li-ion SmartPack battery, regenerative braking and disc brakes at both wheels.

Mahindra GenZe 2.0 weighs 105 kg and has a load carrying capacity of 125 kg.

The scooter is propelled by a hub-mounted brushless permanent magnet motor with an impressive peak torque of 130 Nm. A portable 1.6 KWh li-ion battery is the source of electricity. It achieves full charge in 3.5 hours and a range of 30 miles (48.3 km). The top speed stands at 30 miles (48.3) so riders needn’t have motorcycle license. Three┬áriding modes are on offer – Sport, Economy and Easy.

The Mahindra GenZe 2.0 electric scooter is claimed to have 300 orders already and customers in the above mentioned US states can book one by paying a deposit of USD 100. The green urban runabout is priced at USD 2,999 (around INR 2.0 lakhs).
