Mahindra To Debut An Electric Car On March 18

India‘s first new electric car in more than a decade will be launched on March 18, ushering in what may be the first earnest and well-financed competition to petroleum-powered cars in the world’s second-largest country.

The Mahindra E2O is a four-seater hatchback targeted at upper-middle-class families in need of a second car in congested cities like Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore, where it expected to first go on sale. It is expected to have a range of 100 kilometers (62 miles) and a top speed of about 80 kilometers (almost 50 miles) an hour.

Unlike the U.S., Europe, China or Japan, all of which have multiple automakers building electric cars and pushing for the infrastructure that supports them, India has just one: Mahindra Reva. The entity came about in 2010 when Mahindra bought Reva, a small electric-car company that over a decade sold less than 5,000 models of its tiny electric car, the REVAi. India has millions of cars on its roadways but only a few thousand electric cars, and almost no public electric car chargers.
