The four-door e2o is expected to be unveiled during the June-July period of 2016, by which time the company would be done setting up a distribution centre in the UK for this model.

He mentioned that the Indian government's Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric Vehicles (FAME) initiative is helping the company improve their focus on the electric car segment in India, and that sales of the e2o doubled after the policy was adopted. "The sale of these cars depends a lot on the state governments' policy towards greener and cleaner vehicles," he added.
