Mahindra today in a press conference in New Delhi launched the eVerito at a starting price tag of Rs 9.50 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). eVerito is their second electric vehicle to be put on sale in India after the new-gen E2O and the manufacturer has plans for many more.
The e Verito is the first electric sedan by Mahindra and it gets features like fast charging, direct drive transmission, intelligent energy management system, connected telematics and regenerative braking. It also gets a first in the world feature which goes by the name Revive. Developed by Mahindra Electric, this is for those untoward times when you run out of charge and still need to go few extra miles. Revive gets the driver 8 km of extra range to reach the nearest charging point.
The car gets a 72 volt three phase AC induction motor which helps in churning out 40.9 bhp of maximum power at 3,500 rpm and 91 Nm of peak torque at 3,000 rpm. The 200 Ah battery needs 8 hours 45 minutes to charge under normal condition. The quick charge mode available in the top end trim can top it up from 0 to 80 per cent in just 1 hour 45 minutes. The eVerito has a top speed of 86 kmph which is more than sufficient for city driving. The range, however, is claimed to be 110 km on a full charge.
Mahindra has managed to keep the weight of the eVerito at 1,700 kg (gross) which is 70 kilos more than the diesel version. A boost mode has been provided for extra power. So what’s the savings? After all an electric car is not just about the environment but also about saving on operating costs. As per Mahindra the lithium ion battery needs just 18 units of electricity to charge fully. So if we take the cost of electricity per unit to be 7 bucks, that brings the per kilometer price down to just Rs 1.15!
