The Mahindra e20 Plus was initially sold in four variants including P2, P4, P6 and P8. The top-spec P8 variant delivered the highest driving range of 140 km.

The Mahindra e2o plus was introduced in the market back in October 2016 and came as a replacement to the e2o model which was launched in March 2013. The e2o range was Mahindra's maiden attempt at electric cars.

The Mahindra e20 Plus was initially sold in four variants including P2, P4, P6 and P8. The top-spec P8 variant delivered the highest driving range of 140 km on a single charge, while the rest three only did 110 km. However, by the end of life, only the P2, P4 and P6 grades were on sale. The e20 Plus' battery pack took 7 hours 20 minutes for getting fully charged via a 3 kW single phase 16 Amp socket. A 10 kW three phase 32 Amp charger, on the other hand, could do the same in not more than 1 hour 35 minutes.

The demise of the Mahindra e20 Plus marks the beginning of the next phase of electric mobility at Mahindra Electric. The company will start rolling out new-age pure electric PVs now, beginning with the Mahindra eKUV100 around the festive season this year. In the second half of 2020, the pure electric Mahindra XUV300 (codename: Mahindra e-S201) will follow. These EVs will be much more practical as everyday vehicles, bigger in size and significantly higher on the range. The battery-powered Mahindra XUV300, for instance, will offer a range of up to 350-400 km.
