Mahindra Reva, part of the Mahindra Group, on Tuesday said it will launch its new generation electric vehicle, e20 in mid-March.

The company said e20 will use next generation Lithium Ion batteries and “will have a range of 100 kms on a full charge, which is suitable for most urban commuters today”. The price of the car is yet to be announced.

Commenting on the planned launch of the product on March 18, Mahindra & Mahindra President, (Automotive & Farm Equipment Sectors) Pawan Goenka said, “Electric vehicles today epitomise clean and green driving and Mahindra wants to take the lead in developing this segment and its surrounding eco system. We sincerely hope that such an initiative will find the desired support and incentives from all governmental agencies that will support us in this journey of providing clean mobility solutions.”

The e20 will enable users to carry out self fuelling through any 15 amp plug point at home or at their workplace.

This can be further augmented with the help of Sun2Car solar technology, the company added.

The electric car will be produced at Mahindra Reva’s recently inaugurated production facility at Bengaluru which has a manufacturing capacity of 30,000 cars per annum.

The e20 was showcased at the Auto Expo held here in January last year.
