Mahindra e2O plus

Mahindra e20 plus is a good compact small electric car which provides some basic features but didn’t impress at all against other auto manufacturing company in electric technology, a slight success in the Indian market only came of no other electric car available in the market which benefitted them, Mahindra would have to work a lot to compete against the upcoming launch models if they want to survive in the electric car market.

80 kmph top speed with the range of 140 km wouldn’t be enough to sustain in the market especially at that price.
