Last seen at the 2016 Auto Expo event, the pure electric Mahindra e-Verito will finally launch tomorrow. Based on the Verito sedan, the electric version is one of its kind in the country. The upcoming car will be offered in three variants - D2, D4 and D6.

Under the hood, instead of a regular Mahindra Verito engine, the new model gets a 29kW electric AC motor that generates 39bhp of power. On a full charge, the e-Verito claims to cover a distance of 100kms and attains a top speed of 86kmph. The car’s battery takes about six hours for a full charge, while a quick charge can be availed in only about two hours. The one seen at the event featured an automatic transmission which is expected to be offered in the production variant as well.

As the body and the chassis has been carried straight from the regular Verito, the electric version does not feature any major upgrades except for stickering and badging work. The interiors are spacious and fairly decent. The higher variant might get leather upholstery along with more feature upgrades. In order to ensure best efficiency figures, the car will also get low resistance tyres.

The recent government’s incentive scheme on hybrid and electric cars might also benefit Mahindra’s upcoming e-Verito sedan. Moreover, the car has no direct competition for now, which means that the car can indeed boost overall sales figures for Mahindra. The pricing aspect and additional details will be revealed tomorrow. Based on anticipation, the base e-Verito variant might be priced under Rs 8.0 lakh.
