India Launches Affordable EV in UK

India Launches Affordable EV in UK India Launches Affordable EV in UK

The Mahindra e20 has been launched in the UK as an affordable electric vehicle, costing from £12,995 ($18,000) (after grant) and sold online to customers. The cost of most electric cars has been one of the prohibitive factors and industry giant Mahindra thinks it has the answer to that with e20, according to Cars UK. For $18,000, buyers will get a successor to the G-Whiz, complete with styling that’s just as unappealing, a range of 79 miles and performance you could probably better on a decent push bike – 0-50mph in 18 seconds. The UK price is more than twice as much as the e20 is in India, but Mahindra has improved the e2o for the UK market with more safety stuff, a better interior and more powerful battery. A top speed of 100 km/h and slow acceleration makes the e20 a liability–even on congested urban roads–and it’ll take nine hours to recharge the 13.9 kWh battery that propels the 42 bhp electric motor.
