    Mahindra e2o [2014-2016] Car Review

    Mahindra launched the e2o in 2013 and projected it as the ultimate city commuter that not only saves fossil fuels but is also cheaper to run and saves the environment by being a non-polluting vehicle. However with a price of Rs. 5.96 lakh, it was too less a car with too big a price. Practicality was an issue too with limited range and just a 2 door version available which meant ingress and egress was a pain.

    What is it?

    Mahindra launched the e2o in 2013 and projected it as the ultimate city commuter that not only saves fossil fuels but is also cheaper to run and saves the environment by being a non-polluting vehicle. However with a price of Rs. 5.96 lakh, it was too less a car with too big a price. Practicality was an issue too with limited range and just a 2 door version available which meant ingress and egress was a pain. 

    Now three years down the line, Mahindra after a lot of feedback has introduced the e2o Plus. As the name suggests, it is a plus sized version of the original e2o. But the ‘Plus’ moniker accounts for a lot changes apart from just the size. But let’s talk about the size first. The e2o Plus is a longer, wider and taller than the regular e2o. Even the wheelbase has got a considerable bump with the current car boasting 2258 mm compared to the earlier cars 1958 mm.

    The car as a result of the increased length looks a lot more proportional than before. While the headlight design remains the same, there is an all-new signature toothy Mahindra grille and a redesigned bumper.

     

    On the sides, the addition of the rear door is immediately noticeable which gets a nice window line that drops down like in the Honda Mobilio/BR-V. Overall, it’s a much better looking car than the standard e2o, but the quirky design still remains to be in the love it or hate it category.

    How is it on the inside?

    Because of its tall boy design, getting in and out of the car is a very easy affair. Once in however, the e2o is surprisingly spacious for its size. Beige coloured seats and a large glass house means, it feels like a pretty airy cabin. The dashboard layout remains similar to the earlier car. There are four circular air-con vents with the center being dominated by the Blaupunkt touchscreen android infotainment system which gets Bluetooth, aux and the usual goodies.

    It also doubles up as the screen for all the car information you need like the charge status, revive function and then some. Below the screen are the dials for air-con controls which are extremely simple to operate but have a slightly flimsy feel to them. There is a nice carbon-fibre insert around the screen and the air-con controls which tries to impart some premium-ness. 

    The steering wheel doesn’t impart a feel-good factor and we think is a tad to large compared to the size of the car and the cabin. It’s also got a bulge in the 4’o clock – 8’o clock position which we have no clue what it’s for.

    The instrument console is pretty much the best highlight of the dash. With a bright blue back light, the console shows all the information like charge status, ambient temperature, gear and then some. It’s pretty easy to read too under all light conditions.

    Talking about the seats, we were pretty comfy in the short drive with the driver getting height adjustability too. Driving position is pretty good but we found the foot-well to be a tad too narrow with the knee hitting the center console too often. Also since the e2o isn’t too wide, one keeps rubbing into the co-passenger as well.

    At the back the extended wheelbase means there is plenty of knee room but again limited width means a slightly intimate seating and of course it’s strictly a four seater. When you do need to shove luggage at the back the seat fold down to make room but you do not get a 60:40 split.  

     

    How does it drive?

    So the good news with the e2o plus is that the electric motor gets a big plus too. So the P2/P4/P6 variants get 25 bhp motor with 70Nm of torque. But if you go for the top of the line P8 variant, the power is bumped up to 40 bhp and 91Nm of torque. 

    Push the start stop button and you are ready to go. No engine cranking nothing. Slot the gear into Forward and you are ready to go. It’s as simple as it gets. We were driving the P8 variant within closed confines and not on the public road, but it was enough to give us an idea about the motors potential. With the motor mounted at the wheel there is no transmission loss and response is immediate but this ain’t no Tesla so it’s not going to yank one’s head back.

    But should you need the extra oomph for overtaking that annoying rickshaw or bus, you also have a boost mode wherein the car packs a nice dollop of torque to give it increased acceleration. But of course the more you use the boost mode the lesser you’re range gets. With the e2o plus that range is now 140 km as compared to the earlier cars 100 km. But we need to test it in the real world to see what the actual range is.

    Braking is something that takes a while to get used to and needs quite a bit of effort as well. Yes it’s regenerative wherein every time you tap the brakes, energy is produced and help the battery recharge, but that still does not mean one has to put so much effort onto the brake pedal. The e2o Plus comes with a front disc rear drum set up but no ABS.

    Coming to the ride quality, since it was a closed environment we couldn’t really gauge the ride and handling but first impressions show that it’s pretty nimble thanks to the light steering, compact dimensions and lightweight fibre body. Ride quality however, wasn’t too convincing. The 14 inch take in minor undulations well, but the moment it goes over anything worse, the car thuds over it with most of it filtering into the cabin as well. Even when seated at the back, ride quality feels quite stiff. 

    Why should I buy one?

    Because you want to save the environment or you’re a tech freak who loves to collect gadgets. The e2o is techy guys delight. You get a remote app for the e2o through which you can pretty much control most of the car features. You can stop/start charging, troubleshoot, heck you can even pre-cool the car by turning on the air-con remotely. Pretty neat.

    Also if your commute is less than 100 km in a day in the city, the e2o is not only more easy to drive but also more economical than any car with an internal combustion engine. Also a full charge takes about eight to nine hours and there is also a quick charge that charges 95% of the battery in 90 min.

     

    Where does it fit in?

    Actually nowhere. The e2o Plus being a fully electric car is a niche segment with no other competition. But considering the P8 variant is priced at a whopping Rs. 8.46 lakh ex-Delhi, it will go up against the likes of the VW Ameo, the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, Hyundai i20 Elite and even the Ford Figo. But is it a worthy alternative to all these cars? We’ll just have to wait and find out!

    • Not worth the money
      Exterior Looks are quite good and the good part ends there! Compact from outside, but spaceous inside. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Interiors are decent and good quality. map feature is good, but you have to pay for updates. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Battery driven car. Battery works well in the first year and the performance keeps going down after that. M&M convinently keep it secret that after 5 years you have to spend 3-4Lakhs to replace the batteries. Software quality is also bad and makes us stranded on the road. We have had quite a few instances like that the M&M is not able to fix it permanently. They only provide temporary fixes. Ride Quality & Handling Drive experience is not that great and you can feel jerks. Clutch is not very comfortable.  Final Words Not worth the price. I wouldn't suggest anyone to buy this. Although E2O is discontinued now, E2O Plus is no different except in size. Areas of improvement Battery perforamance and software quality.Very few. Easy to drive,Too many problems

    • very low quality parts subject to breakdown frequently
      I had a Reva non-AC car for 8 years before I upgraded to a 2 door E20, in 2014. Its a fully loaded car which comes at a very high cost. no doubt its a very easy, zippy smart car but comes with more cons than pros!! Please be careful while buying this car. In the first few months itself, the passenger seat was broken during reclining, the AC didnt work when temperature touches 30 degrees. Wires from the speakers were hanging out. Though all these were repaired under warranty, the AC and power steering were a recurring problem. Since it was under warranty, it was all done FOC until recently when the warranty just expired. The power steering of the car stopped working and the AC as usual did not work well. Though I had repeatedly complained about the AC, the service centre is now asking me to foot the bill for the replacement of the AC unit since the whole circuitry is burned. All the components have to be replaced and it will cost Rs.60000 for the same. AFter paying 7.5 lakhs for the car, and with the warranty just expired, the shocker has come! They are ready to shell some percentage of the cost and rest we have to bear! The amount I have to pay now will be in excess of 23000. Imagine! How can a car company with such a niche customer base and claims itself to be the pioneers of electric cars in India have such sub standard quality of parts that wears out in no time?? This is utterly not acceptable. Their excuse is that since its electric, they cannot guarantee the durabilty of the parts! Then why the heck are they selling  it  at such a high price if its such a cheap car!? My friend who had bought the car on my recommendation also faced a big problem with the car charging cable. The cable stopped working after 2 years and they had to buy a new cable which was Rs 5,600. Service centre didnt even have a charging cable in stock for 2 weeks. How can aperson drive a car without charging it? Luckily for her, I lent my charging cable to her whenever she needed it. Else, she wouldnt have been able to drive. There is an issue with the power steering as well. It can just stop working making the steering very hard and unable to drive for even a few kms. Please dont buy this car and get fooled into thinking that its maintenance free.That is just baloney! Sure it saves you time at the petrol station but your car has to go to the service centre every now and then! Dont waste your money on this plastic junk! God save you if you buy one and something goes wrong after 3 years! There is a battery cost of RS.3000 one needs to pay every month for 5 years! Mahindra needs a big overhaul in the quality of its parts and the assurance it gives to its customers! Calling themselves green, one cannot cheat customers like this! Very frustrating and disappointing since I switched to E2o out of brand loyalty ! 11years of being with Reva, I am ready to call it quits! High on price, very low on quality!easy drive,automatic,great for city drivedischarges quickly,worst AC,high cost of parts

    • Beware: Mahindra e2o vehicle has low battery life
      I have bought Mahindra e2o under battery lease agreement (GFHE). Overall, I was satisfied with the vehicle performance until 30K kms. As per the agreement, battery is supposed to be working fine for 5 years or 50K kms. But immediately around 30K kms, vehicle started to give problems, eg,, vehicle stops in the middle of the road, while the range still shows 35kms.  It happened couple of times. I took it to service guys and they say battery performance has come down and it is natural :(  They are giving all technical details without solving my problem with the battery.  Vehicle is supposed to give 120km range, but now it drops to 96km after service. First time you will feel why you trusted Mahindra and bought electric vehicle. It's a punishment for the trust you place in Mahindra.  As per the agreement, battery pack should be fixed or repaired to bring it back to full range, but the service team. I sincerly hope Mahindra gets more tough competition from Tata, Maruti etc., so that their sales and service teams will keep their promises.Comfort in city driveBattery range

    • Nightmare called Mahindra E20
      Exterior Exterior is the only good thing about this car. Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Very claustrophobic. AC does not reach the back. AC is very noisy. Power upgrade was poorly done. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox Nothing to mention. Ride Quality & Handling Turning radius is good. Final Words Do not buy - The battery is really bad. Mahindra gives 5 year warranty, all they do is some nonsense called power boost the cells which are not charging. I have had 3 breakdowns thrice in the middle of the night.  My car is 3.5 years old. It has run 39 Kms. I have spent 8 lakhs. It is nothing but a security Hazard. As a women driver - I think it is very risk especially if you are someone who drives back late from work Areas of improvement Attitude towards customers sucks, Insensitive Service Centre, Battery Warranty is all Sham. Till not they have not got their charging ecosystem right. They have not given the portable battery after 3.8 years till now. They just cheat.Its quiet, smooth driveBattery lets you down. The service is horrible. Senior team is very insensitive - customer UNfriendl
