Mahindra e-Verito Launched At Rs 9.5 Lakh

Electric cars are no longer a thing of fantasy with the segment gaining popularity in global markets. In India, though, electric vehicles (EV) account for a negligible share of car sales. However, Mahindra has been at the forefront of e-wheelers in India and after years of going solo, the e2o has finally been joined by the e-Verito sedan. Ex-showroom Delhi prices for the car are as follows:

  • D2 - Rs 9.50 Lakh
  • D4 - Rs 9.75 Lakh
  • D6 - Rs 10 Lakh

Mahindra showcased the e-Verito at the Delhi Auto Expo earlier this year after presenting the concept version at the 2014 expo. As the name suggests, the car is based on Mahindra’s slow-selling Verito sedan that is otherwise offered with a 1.5-litre diesel engine. Like the e2o, the e-Verito runs on electricity alone. It is powered by a three-phase 72V electric motor that produces 41PS of power and 91Nm of torque.

Charging the battery from 0 to 100 per cent takes around eight hours, so this isn't for the impatient. However, if you opt for the D6 variant with the 'fast charge' feature, you can get the e-Verito up to an 80 per cent charge in one hour and forty-five minutes. The model has a claimed range of 110km (e2o = 120km), with the top speed rated at a modest 86 kmph.

The car will be sold in key markets such as Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Kolkata, Chandigarh, Hyderabad, Jaipur and Nagpur. The e-Verito is unlikely to be a great seller, but the fact that it is a four-door sedan will enhance its appeal, given the added practicality it offers over the e2o hatchback.

Do you think the e-Verito will be a better seller than the e2o in India? Would you consider buying an affordable electric car? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!

They should have launched it as new marque altogether.... verito is not that successful. But to say the least, that's the way to go... India needs such kind of vehicles.... Indians are ready to indulge in 25L Cars from Tesla,but hardly encourage home grown players like M&M. Though, range,charging time, design in itself is hardly exciting,.... Really thumps up to M&M taking bold step.....

There is an interesting launch to look out for. It is an eco-friendly variant of Verito and it is a 100% zero emission vehicle.Considering the fact that customers can enjoy the luxury of an all-electric car, is it going to be a game changer as it is the perfect eco-friendly car.

      For India, definitely its need of the hour. However, I have very much apprehensions about the success of the Battery cars since they are priced at a high....
