Mahindra Reva has launched a new premium variant of its electric car, the Reva, at Rs 5.72 lakh (on-road Delhi). This new variant comes with an extended range of 120kms and electric power steering.
This new variant will continue to host features like the infotainment system, driver information system, reverse parking camera and assist. The customer also needs to pay a monthly energy fee of Rs 2,999 which will allow him or her to drive 50,000kms for a period of five years.
Mahindra Reva has also introduced an easy and simple ownership scheme called Goodbye Fuel, Hello Electric for the e2o. The programme separates the initial acquisition cost of the e2o and the usage cost (in the form of the battery and its maintenance) to make the e2o more affordable. It also guarantees the performance of the battery as the ownership of the battery lies with Mahindra Reva. As part of the scheme you pay only for the distance you drive.
“Convenience of city driving has always been a priority for Mahindra Reva. The e2o is automatic with the smallest turning radius, along with features like the hill-hold, which prevent it from rolling back while on an incline. All this makes e2o an ideal car for urban city commuting. Now with the new premium variant, we are also offering the variable assist electric power steering, taking e2o’s manoeuvrability to next level,.” said Chetan Maini, CEO, Mahindra Reva.
