The battery pack takes 5 hours and 10 minutes to get fully charged on a standard 220V 15A socket but the process takes place at a much quicker rate with the Quick2Charge (DC fast charge) station.

The car has a top speed of 81 kmph but getting there is quite a task.

Once you authenticate the key by bringing it in contact with the start/stop button, you press it and are ready to go. The only way to know that the car is on, is by looking at the instrument panel. A jab of the accelerator pedal is accompanied by a muted whining and relaxed progress.

There is absolutely nothing conventional about the little city car's propulsion system when compared to a regular Indian small car. Motive force is courtesy of a rear-mounted electric motor which puts out a modest 19 KW (around 26 PS) at 3,750 rpm and a torque of 53.9 Nm right from the word go all the way up to 3,400 rpm. The system derives electricity from a 48V maintenance free Li-ion battery pack which can be leased from the company to avoid the high procurement cost. The motor is mated to an automatic transmission.

Mahindra Reva claims that e2o can travel a good 102 km approx. on a full charge. The fact that we were left with more than 30 km worth of charge even after subjecting the car to a punishing drive of around 70 km (half the distance with AC on)a full charge can easily last for 2-3 days.

Ground clearance of 180 mm.

It has a 6.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system that offers a comprehensive status of the vehicle, GPS navigation, reverse parking camera, and smartphone connectivity with remote access to the AC. Other noteworthy features include high impact body panels, power windows, keyless entry with start-stop button, regenerative braking and projector headlamps. The Reva rides better than you'd expect a car of its size to, and there is even a 'Boost' mode for squirting it into and out of gaps. The e2o can seat four, and you could coax it all the way to a respectable 80kph.

The e2o also gets a reverse camera, Bluetooth, music system and electric ORVMs. this car is more in tune with today's times. but it has been improved in every other way.

Mahindra e2o is a well engineered pure electric car which is characterised by a cheerful attitude. It is very efficient, extremely easy to use, comes loaded with modern technology.
