Mahindra Launches 4-Door “e2o Plus” — $8,100 All-Electric Vehicle

Mahindra Electric has finally launched its 4-door “e2o Plus” all-electric vehicle in India, following several years of waiting. The new electric car is being offered as 4 different variant options — the P2 (commercial), the P4, the P6, and the P8.

Pricing for the 4 variants ranges from INR 5.46 Lakhs (the P4) to INR 8.46 Lakhs — when state subsidies and the FAME incentive are factored in. In USD, at current exchange rates, that corresponds to a price range of roughly $8,100 to $12,600.


To those wondering about the pricing, the model is intended primarily for city use, and probably wouldn’t be very well suited to other purposes.

The new e2o Plus features regenerative braking, a new grille design with vertical slats, a reverse parking camera, a hill assist feature, a new bumper design, LED-powered vertical tail lamps, and a redesigned window line.

The two higher-trim options, the P6 and P8, feature two-tone interiors and fabric upholstery. The two variants also come standard with a Blaupunkt infotainment system.

Here’s more from Indian Auto Blog: “The P2, P4 and P6 variants of the Mahindra e2o Plus pack a 19 kW electric motor powered by a 48V battery pack. It is capable of sprinting from 0-60 km/h in 14.1 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 80 km/h. The maximum driving range offered by the powertrain is 110 km. Once the batteries are depleted, the P4 and P6 variants require 6 hours to recharge the battery, while the P2 variant features ‘Fast Charging’ which completes the process in 1.25 hours. The range-topping P8 variant has more powerful a 30 kW motor powered by a 72V battery pack. It can accelerate from 0-60 km/h in 9.5 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 85 km/h. It is fitted with ‘Fast Charging’ as standard, which recharges the battery pack in 1.5 hours.”

To reiterate that for Americans and Brits, the P2, P4, and P6, variants take around 14 seconds to do 0-37 mph. Hence my comment above that this is a city-car and may not be useful for most other purposes.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
