The Mahindra Verito Electric was spotted testing in North India recently, ahead of its speculated launch in the coming months.
Named as the 'e-Verito', the new car is the electric version of the Verito sedan. It is a fully electric vehicle that has been spied testing several times before. Cosmetically, it looks similar to the standard Verito sedan but gets additional 'Automatic', ‘Powered by Reva’ and 'Electric' badges to differentiate it from the regular car.
In this electric variant, the engine will be replaced by an electric AC motor that produces 29kW (39bhp) of power. The latter is different from the 19kW motor powering the e2O hatchback while the chassis and body will be carried over from the Verito sedan. The car is capable of hitting a top speed of 86kmph and it runs up to 100kms on a full charge. It takes six hours to avail the full range, while a quick charge takes 1.5 hours.
Mahindra is going strong about its nine products launch strategy for the Indian market this year. The electric Verito seems to be a part of this plan and it might be launched before the end of this year. The environment-friendly zero emission model will be positioned above the diesel variant of the Verito in terms of price when it goes on sale in India.
