Tiny Mahindra Reva Electric e2o

Tiny Mahindra Reva Electric e2o

The successor to the G-Wiz, the Mahindra e2o, will go on sale in the UK next month.

Priced from £13,000 ($18,522 USD), the e2o will be one of the cheapest street legal electrics sold in the UK.

Autocar reports:

"The electric city car will be an upgraded version of the e2o model that is already on sale in India, featuring more safety equipment and a higher quality interior, but it's thought to have a similar claimed electric range of 75 miles."

"...the manufacturer told Autocar the two-door, four-seat vehicle will wear the Mahindra badge and be priced from £13,000 to £16,000, depending on the trim level."

The price includes the battery pack, which comes with a three-year warranty. Real-world range will obviously be nowhere near 75 miles since the car only has a 6.4 kWh 10.4 kWh (update: source article quoted incorrect capacity) battery pack.

Quoting Arvind Mathew, head of Mahindra's electric vehicle division:

“The Mahindra e2o is a savvy electric car that redefines sustainable urban driving."

"We designed the e2o, as well as our complete sales and service model, to be more convenient and flexible in keeping with the way our UK customers live and work.”

Cars will be purchased online only, as there's currently no dealership network in place.

Some additional info, via Autocar:

"The Indian spec e2o is 3280mm long, 1514mm wide and 1560mm high, with a 1958mm wheelbase and kerb weight of 830kg, but the weight is expected to increase with the added safety equipment in the UK model. It has a top speed of around 50mph, and the 6.4kWh lithium ion battery has 25bhp and 39lb ft of instantly available torque, and takes five hours to charge from empty."
