Indian auto giant Mahindra has unveiled its all-electric vehicle Reva e20 in the city of Chandigarh. The zero emission vehicle has been launched at a per month cost of Rs. 12,802, which includes EMI and running cost. With the new vehicle, the company aims to make more green vehicles for India, which is currently reeling under the weight of ever-increasing fuel prices.
Arun Malhotra, the Chief Sales and Customer care officer of the Automotive division at Mahindra and Mahindra, said at the launch, “We are certain that the cutting-edge technological innovation that has gone into the Mahindra e2o will help customers remain connected in a convenient and cost-effective manner.” R Chandramouli, the Chief of Operations for Mahindra Reva, said that that electric cars have always worked as the potential vehicle to emerge as a serious alternative to fossil fuel driven vehicles.
Chandramouli went on to say that prospective customers have a choice in their hands, to shape the future of mobility. Mahindra has made a case to the Chandigarh Administration for a subsidy of about 30 percent on the total cost of the car, which otherwise comes to around Rs. 918 lakh.
The new vehicle has been designed keeping in mind an urban mobility solution for a sustainable zero emission society, which gains relevance in the face of issues like environmental degradation, pollution, health concerns and climate change.
