Default Mahindra Maxximo Electric Vans to move tourists around Taj Mahal

Mahindra & Mahindra has announced the launch of the first electric vehicle pilot project under the Government of India's National Electric Mobility Mission Plan (NEMMP). Four units of the battery-operated Mahindra Maxximo electric van were delivered to the Agra Development Authority for use along the Taj Zero Emission Corridor, in an attempt to reduce vehicular pollution.

Developed by Mahindra Reva, the Maxximo electric van is an 8-seater zero-emission mini-van powered by advanced lithium-ion batteries. It has a claimed range of 100 km on a single charge and can hit an electronically limited top speed of 65 kph. Mahindra claims that it is suitable use in all weather conditions.

The Maximmo Electric Vans will initially be used to ferry tourists from Shilpgram to the East Gate of the Taj Mahal. In the future, they could also be used for transporting tourists to Mehtab Bagh for night viewing of the Taj Mahal. Mahindra will also provide charging stations, technical assistance, spare parts and additional service support for this project.

The Maxximo Electric van is expected to be production ready by FY-2016 and may be used for first and last mile connectivity for Metro rail and BRTS systems, school vans, corporate employee commuting solutions and to serve the purpose of campus commuting.
