The Mahindra e-Verito has launched in the country with a price range starting at Rs. 9.50 lakhs for the base model D2 that goes up to Rs. 10 lakhs for the top of the range D6 model trim (prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). The e-Verito is the company’s second fully electric passenger car model, the first model being the Mahindra Reva e2o electric small hatchback.

mahindra e-verito

The Mahindra e-Verito is essentially the all-electric version of the company’s existing Verito sedan which is quite popular in the Indian market. Mahindra & Mahindra had first showcased the e-Verito at the 2012 Auto Expo and was expected to launch in a year’s time. Then the car was displayed consecutively at the 2014 as well as 2016 Indian Auto Expo. Although Mahindra was ready to launch the e-Verito much earlier, the company was waiting for the right time and government’s support for the green vehicles. Considering the current situation when the hybrid and electric vehicles are getting popular due to several new restrictions and large diesel engine car ban, while the FAME policy is also in effect, the launch of the Mahindra e-Verito could not be more appropriate. The e-Verito electric sedan will be available for sale at authorized Mahindra showrooms across most prominent cities of India.

The Mahindra e-Verito gets equipped with an electric motor that is powered by a 72V battery pack. The Indian utility vehicle leader claims that its new electric sedan has the capability to offer a driving range of 110 km on a fully charged battery. The electric vehicle gets powered by a lithium ion battery and is empowered with a fast charging technology that fully charges the battery in just 1 hour and 45 minutes, while charging it on regular mode would take around 8 hours for a full charge. The newly launched Mahindra e-Verito electric sedan also comes with a top speed that is rated at 86 km per hour. Mahindra has revealed that the running cost of the e-Verito sedan is around Rs. 1.15 per kilometer.

When it comes to design, the Mahindra e-Verito electric sedan is retaining its regular diesel models’ styling language without any changes whatsoever. Nevertheless, in order to visually differentiate the EV model from the regular fuel counterpart, Mahindra has endowed the e-Verito with some stickers and new badge at the rear. The Mahindra e-Verito also comes with revamped interiors to further mark it apart from its diesel counterpart. The e-Verito is offered for sale in three model trims – D2, D4, and D6.

The Mahindra eVerito joins the league of greener vehicles in India which is expected to grow hugely due to the country’s high pollution issues. The Mahindra e-Verito enjoys subsidies from the government’s FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India) policy.

The Mahindra eVerito is a zero emissions car which gets equipped with a host of hi-tech features such as regenerative braking system, REVIVE, Intelligent Energy Management System and on-board telematics.
