Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles, part of the business conglomerate Mahindra Group, has launched Mahindra e2o, a zero—emission and fully automatic electric car, in Nepal.

Pawan Goenka, Chairman, MREV said electrical vehicles have been emerging as an alternative to fossil fuel-driven vehicles.

“With the Mahindra e2o, we have taken the lead not only in creating a comprehensive ecosystem to nurture sustainable mobility solutions, but have also firmly placed a choice in the hands of our customers,” he said.

The vehicle, introduced as an urban mobility solution, is a fully automatic car that comes with a “Boost Mode” system for rapid acceleration, the company said.

It said the electric vehicle could be a solution for a sustainable “zero—emission society”. The electric vehicle is also expected to help reduce problems like environmental degradation, pollution—related health concerns, climate change, energy security and rising oil prices.

Among the features of the car include remote access via a smartphone application, and ability to charge through any 15 ampere power socket available in the normal house wiring system. The company said the vehicle can be fully charged in just five hours. The car runs 100 km on a single charge.

The Mahindra e2o has been priced at Rs 2.25 million.
