The Mahindra ‘e2o’ is powered by maintenance free next generation Lithium ion batteries that can enable travel up to 100 kms every charge and peak up to 80 kmph.

Another unique feature is the smart phone application that helps stay connected to this car and control its lock system as well as air-conditioning.
