It is unfortunate that the pictures of the interiors aren't present anywhere on the website or the brochure.

One has to Google them out

---------------

As per the website, in Delhi, Fast charging option is available at 13 points, most of which are Mahindra dealers, others are BSES (Power company) setups. There is one in Noida and two in Gurgaon.

Charging at home takes 8 hour 45 minutes.

One thing I like about Tesla cars, is the way they look. They look desirable and not wierd retarded designs which every electric car had to go through.

Had Mahindra offered a car that looked more pleasing to the eye, like a City or a Verna, with modern interiors at a slightly higher price, the conversation here would have been completely different.

I can understand that they have saved on the cost of a new platform and passed it on to the buyer and can only assume that this is a stepping stone for Mahindra and the eVerito is a Guinea Pig. Whatever they learn from here is going into the next all new electric car they are going to build.

I have to admit here that the steering wheel in the picture is the most weird looking steering wheel i have seen ever.
Dual tone steering wheel! what were they thinking?

No offence meant to potential owners.

Overdrive reviews the Verito Electric and are not very impressed. The below point is a key one and a big deal breaker for the few who would consider this.

Quote:
The Mahindra e-Verito takes a fair bit of time to climb to 40kmph from naught, not ideal for quick getaways…or if you plan on robbing a bank. Mahesh Babu, the CTO of Mahindra Electric, claims that the 0-40kmph as well as 0-60kmph sprints are much faster than what one can achieve in the e2o. The maximum speed I managed to see was 56kmph and it took some time getting there. Achieving Mahindra’s claimed top speed of 86kmph will take both a long time and a long stretch of road.

As I said earlier, these are the kind of Electric vehicles whose sole raison d'Ítre is for you to ridicule them (eg. The original Reva, the e-scooters currently sold by Hero & Yo, etc.). They are built for the sole purpose of ripping the initial adopters off their hard earned money and not because the company expects any long term gains from them.

I still maintain, had Mahindra wanted a long-race-horse in their electric portfolio, they would have electrified the XUV, not the sorry E-Verito.

P.S.: We have a Logan in the family for almost 10 years now and is still our primary car.
P.P.S.: I would love it if my next car is a pure electric even though I know that public charging is absolutely not available currently within ~1000km of my location.

Ridicule or not, they (all EV mfrs in India, 4 wheeler or 2) will certainly not be taken seriously till the seminal issue of range is addressed by the battery mfrs as well as by the different front-line technology applications. What is baffling is that there hasn't been a peep out of M&M about the Hybrid Scorpio (the genuine article with starter/motor, aux battery pack, KERS etc., not the micro-hybrid stop/start rubbish now available) they displayed at one of the Auto Expos a couple of years back. Presumably put in deep freeze.

Agreed but in the current technology scenario there is no way to extend range at a sale able price point where the manufacturer can make profits. However this range (~100km with 2 hour charging time) is ok for a purely city car. So it might make sense for a small hatch like Nano or Alto.

Here's the 9.5lakhs variant.

Spotted this commercial segment prepped e-verito D2 variant.

Black cladding, No music system, No remote locking, Manual ORVMs and no fast charging (8hrs 45 mins for full charge)

Remains to be seen if cabbies will find this cost-effective.

Well, atleast few are in actual use. Lithium Urban Technologies, the electric cab aggregator has put the eVerito in service.

Excuse the poor image quality. Location: Noida

The photo, as rightly said is from Noida. The vendor who has acquired these vehicles Lithium Cabs. The vendor has a fleet of cabs deployed in my office. Today I drove the car for the first time. The car has 2 power modes - F and B. F is the normal drive mode wherein B stands for Boost mode which increases the power output and the car feels zippy to drive. Car's overall top speed and total distance in one charge is a downer but considering that this is one of the few early birds in this segment hence should not be an issue for many.

Keep running into the Lithium car once a month kinds. Not sure who uses Lithium if it's a cab aggregator as mentioned in one of the previous posts. But the car zipped by and was hard to keep up with. Could see the familiar circular faint neon blue speedo inside. Don't ever remember seeing passengers.

Lithium is not a cab aggregator. They provide commute services to corporate employees within Bangalore

I think few other companies have also picked this up. I see several of them regularly in the ORR stretch in Bangalore

I spotted the same car at least twice at the same time of day going to EON IT park, Kharadi on Nagar road, Pune. I could see the passengers too and car went in to drop them in EON parking. Looked almost like regular customer ferrying.

There is an entire fleet of these electric cars at EON IT park. Since I worked there and guessing from the parking area they used emerge out off, I assume they did the transport duty for Credit Suisse.

The main difference is that these cabs sport a green number plate and the "lithium" wording on its doors.
