Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles announced the launch of a new premium variant of the electric small car e2o with an extended range of 120 km. The car, which is priced at Rs 5.72 lakh (on road Delhi), will also have electric power steering.
The standard variant Reva e2o has a range of 80 kms on a full charge (four hours) with a top speed of 75kmph. The new premium variant, which takes five hours to full charge, has a claimed top speed of 81 kmph.
Chetan Maini, Chief Executive Officer, Mahindra Reva Electric Vehicles said, "The e2o is automatic with the smallest turning radius, along with features like the hill-hold, which prevent it from rolling back while on an incline. All this makes e2o an ideal car for urban city commuting. Now with the new premium variant, we are also offering the variable assist electric power steering, taking e2o's manoeuvrability to next level."
In the event of running low on charge, customers can use the REVive app on their smart phones to remotely activate the reserve energy that can get them going for an additional 8km.
As a part of the programme, in Delhi, the car is sold with a monthly energy fee of Rs 2,999 which will allow the customer to drive 50,000 KMs for a period of five years.
