Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

The e2o Plus will be the company’s sole ‘born electric’ vehicle.

According to Autocar India, the Mahindra e2o Plus will be the company’s only ‘born electric’ vehicle. In other words, it will be the only product developed to house an electric powertrain, while future Mahindra electric cars will be variants of regular models.

Currently, the platforms Mahindra use for their vehicles are, reportedly, heavy and require extensive re-engineering to integrate an electric powertrain. The new platforms that Mahindra is developing for future products will be compatible with an electric drive unit, so as to facilitate quicker launch of electric versions as well as offer better performance and range.

Mahindra is the only company in India that mass produces EVs for the local market, although that scenario could change in the near future. Companies like Nissan and Tesla have expressed in launching an EV portfolio in India, while Tata has commenced development on new EV powertrains.
