Mahindra Electric, today unveiled a technology and product roadmap that leads to their next generation of EVs, which the company refers to as EV 2.0.
Mahindra has been in the electric mobility business for close a decade. However, due to concerns raised over clean air, urban congestion and rising fuel import bills, the company is now stepping up its game in the electric mobility space. Mahindra is now investing in the next generation EV tech solutions which are to deliver longer range and higher speeds.
Alongside this, the company is talking to both public and private operators to adopt the use of EVs, and this includes setting up of the charging infrastructure that’s needed. As per EV 2.0, Mahindra is going to make investments to ramp up manufacturing, and develop new high-end electric powertrains, motor controllers, systems integration and battery technology.
Mahindra already has over 2700 of their electric vehicles on the road that have collectively clocked more than 40 million km, and it hopes to put more on the road in the time to come. Dr. Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra & Mahindra, said, “The time has now arrived for EVs to become mainstream and Mahindra has the right technology and products for India. We will actively engage with the Government of India, both at the centre and the state, municipal bodies and other private players for setting up a robust EV ecosystem. We are also ramping up our investments towards developing the next generation of EV technologies and products that will cater to the smart cities of tomorrow.”
