Mahindra & Mahindra Unveil Halo Electric Sports Car
Indian automaker Mahindra & Mahindra is gearing up to offer an electric vehicle that’s actually exciting.
Mahindra & Mahindra currently produces the lackluster E20 EV, but at India’s recent Auto Expo, Mahindra wheeled out something entirely different from the E20.
Called Halo, Mahindra says this electric sports car will launch commercially within the next 3 years. Mahindra believes it will be able to sell Halo internationally (it may of may not offer Halo in India though), so there’s a slight chance that someday it could be available in the US.
Mahindra Executive Director and President Pawan Goenka told reporters this at the Auto Expo:
“There is a plan to commercialise Halo, we are working on a bigger powertrain and a final design. It will take about three years to be production ready.”
“It may very well turn out that the market for the car may be outside India, unless there is government support for electric vehicles, the car could be launched outside India first.”
Halo’s initial specs are 0 to 62 mph in less than 8 seconds. Top speed of 99 mph and a range of up to 120 miles.
More importantly for India, Halo is a homegrown product with it being “fully designed and developed in India with all indigenous technology,” according to Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicle CEO Chetan Main.
