Mahindra e2O Plus
Price – `6.07 Lakh

The Maini Reva was the first affordable electric car ever produced in India by Chetan Maini. Soon, Mahindra acquired his electric firm and with the help of Maini himself, built the first e2O 2-seater car. Post that, Mahindra went a step ahead to launch the 4-seater version called the e2O Plus, with an all-electric range of 80 km, and easy charging.

Many leading India manufactures like TATA and Mahindra have taken the lead in manufacturing electric cars. The next stage will be to make self-driven cars…
Now that Diwali is coming, Air Pollution will again become the talk of the town and the capital region of Delhi-NCR is the one suffering the most. With air pollution reaching critical levels, the government and citizens are looking for ways to counter and reduce the pollution menace. While factors like crop burning and cold weather play a major role in elevating pollution levels, we as a citizen can’t do much about them.
What we can do is reduce our fuel consumption, as vehicular pollution is also a major factor in bad air quality. One way to reduce fuel consumption is to adopt e-mobility. We know for sure that the future of mobility is definitely electric cars. Pratap Bose, Head of Design, Tata Motors says, “A huge wave of electric mobility is coming, and nobody knows when. But when it comes, we want to be in the front.”
The problem though is, while the world has already accepted the electric cars as a mass segment, India is yet to accept the wave. Manufacturers like Mahindra, with e2O Plus and eVerito have already started rolling out mass products, while Tata and Hyundai recently rolled-out high range vehicles like the Tigor and Kona EVs. There are also luxury car manufacturers like Lexus and Volvo who are offering their own hybrid products.
Here are all the full-electric and electric-hybrid cars you can buy in India…
