The smart port supports existing technology on the car such as the Sun2Car (Solar Charging) system, Car2Home (a system which the company claims can power your house) system, apart from supporting the new Quick2Charge system.

The Quick2Charge system is basically a DC Fast Charging system. Using this, an e2o can be fully charged in under 60 minutes. A 15 minute charge will provide a range of 25 km. Using a normal 220 V 15 A socket, the e2o needs 5 hours to charge to its battery fully. The normal socket takes an hour to give the car a range of 20 km.

    Still long charging period on a 220v socket, needs to be faster.
    Full Range in 30mins to an hour would be the best, although there is technology and power bottleneck to this, but can be achieved just try harder Mahindra..

    P.s : Next Model, don’t get it designed from DC..

      ‘DC design’ is an oxymoron

    That was required nowadays for EV. This is going to be more convenient for on road charging stations which could be installed from each other @ 20km intervals to make charging station networks across the city.
