Home grown auto major Mahindra Reva will launch the electric version of its entry-level sedan e-Verito in India on Thursday.
Showcased at the Delhi Auto Expo earlier this year, the electric avatar of Mahindra's Verito sedan shares its underpinnings with the Renault Logan just like the diesel variant.
Just like the e2o, the e-Verito runs purely on electricity. It is powered by a 3-phase 72V electric motor that produces 41PS of power and 91Nm of torque. Now, that doesn't really sound like a lot, but we reckon it is more than adequate for the city use it is meant to tackle.
Speaking of usage, expect a range of around 100 kms on a single charge (e2o = 120kms). Charging the batteries on the sedan from zero will take approximately seven to eight hours. Mahindra will enable a fast charge option for the e-Verito as well, that will reduce charging time to one and a half hour.
We expect prices to start at approximately Rs 8 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai). It will be offered in three variants viz. D2, D4 and D6. It looks exactly like the standard Verito and will feature updated interiors.
