Mahindra Udo, Mahindra Atom electric concepts at Auto Expo 2018
The Atom is designed as a new last mile connectivity option for India's smart cities.
Accompanying the e2o NXT and e-KUV100 at Mahindra Electric’s Auto Expo stall are two puny urban mobility concepts which go by the name Udo and Atom. The former is a two seater mobility pod while the later is an ‘urban mobility concept for smart India’.
The Udo has been conceived to battle the traffic congestion and pollution in urban environments. The mobility pod caters to tech savvy urban citizens and offers an enclosed cabin with micro lighting, climate control, touchscreen infotainment system, and Bluetooth audio system.
The most interesting feature of the Udo is the Smart Fitness system which allows the users to work on their cardio while commuting! Yes, you can do so by making use of the concept’s smart cycling feature. The tadpole construction ensures that the driver doesn’t need to use his/her foot to balance the vehicle when it’s standing still.
The Atom aims to re-imagine the last mile connectivity solution for India’s upcoming smart cities, thereby transforming the way public transportation works in the country. The minimalist design is claimed to have achieved a compact footprint while maximizing interior space.
Atom’s electric powertrain is powered by a battery pack which can be swapped quickly to ensure uninterrupted service round the clock. The on board connectivity system is designed to make seamless bookings and payments. The system also provides real time updates on next train, bus or flights, and nearest boarding points. The Mahindra Atom concept also offers several convenient and safety features.
