In mid-2015, the electric version of the Verito sedan will be launched in India. It will be positioned in the commercial car-rental segment, M&M's Executive Director, Mr Pawan Goenka said at a press conference. The company expects to sell around 100 cars a month here, and as before, it plans to export the vehicle to other markets like Europe as well.

A pre-production model was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo. While the drivetrain is different, the interior, exterior, and dimensions are identical to the normal Verito.
