Pre-orders are already underway for a token amount of Rs 2,000

PMV Electric, a Mumbai-based startup, is going to reveal its first electric vehicle, the Ease-E soon. It’s a city-focused EV which will be the most affordable electric ‘car’ in India when it goes on sale in the nation on November 16 and here are five reasons why we think it will be a sub-Rs 5 lakh electric four-wheeler: 

It’s not even a car!

The Ease-E is not a car but a quadricycle, just like the Bajaj Qute. That way, it is not subject to the same scrutiny and standards as a car which allows for those tiny proportions as a city runabout. The very small hood, upright stance and all four wheels pushed to the ends are some of its ‘quadricycle’ traits.

It’s even smaller than a Tata Nano

745 kgs

The Ease-E is almost 200mm shorter (length-wise) and 350mm narrower than the Nano. Since the steering wheel is installed in the middle of the centre console, it’s just a two-seater (one seat in the front and one in the back). However, it still gets front and rear doors for ease of use.

This two-seat layout for a city-use micro-EV is not a first either. Perhaps the most well-known global electric quadricycle would be the Renault Twizzy. 

Gets A limited driving range

The specifications of the PMV Ease-E are yet to be revealed, but it will get a small battery pack. The marque claims the EV will offer a range of 160km and have a top speed of 70kmph. The electric quadricycle can be juiced up in under four hours from a household outlet. It doesn’t need a wallbox charger, or more likely, its electric architecture may not be capable of supporting those charging speeds.

Not big on safety features

Since it’s a quadricycle, the Ease-E doesn’t need to comply with the standard safety rules that all new cars have to. The details will be revealed at launch, but we’re not expecting it to even be equipped with dual airbags, ABS and for that matter, even crumple zones. However, it does get a rear parking camera and front disc brakes. 

But it gets several premium features

While it’s only an electric quadricycle, it doesn’t compromise on features. The Ease-E gets LED headlamps, a Bluetooth-enabled audio system, AC, an LCD instrument cluster, OTA upgrades, steering-mounted controls, power windows, keyless entry, remote parking assist and cruise control. You can also access several remote functions like unlocking/locking, windows, AC, lights and horn operation. 

On these parameters, we’re expecting the PMV Ease-E to be priced between Rs 4 lakh and Rs 5 lakh (ex-showroom). It’s likely to be aimed at fleet operators for last-mile connectivity, especially in gated areas. It might be offered for private buyers too, but its use as a personal vehicle seems limited by its size and range.
