Under the tender by EESL (Energy Efficiency Service Limited), Mahindra & Mahindra was into the contract of supplying electric vehicles for the Government to use. The company has now commenced with the delivery of the electric Verito and the first unit has already been delivered, much before the deadline of November 30, 2017.

After Tata Motors won the tender of supplying electric cars at a price of Rs. 11.2 lakhs, which would be inclusive of GST and a 5-year warranty, Mahindra agreed to match up to the amount quoted by the Tatas by decreasing the bid amount by Rs. 2.3 lakhs per unit.

The tender by the EESL was for the automobiles companies to supply 10,000 electric vehicles, out of which, 500 would be a part of the first phase. That said, Mahindra & Mahindra had said that it would not be supplying more than 150 units in the first phase producing more than that at that price would incur losses to the company.

The event of the delivery of the first Mahindra e-Verito included a ceremony in which the CEO of Mahindra Electric, Mahesh Babu, handed over the keys to Saurabh Kumar, who is the Managing Director of EESL. The ceremony took place in the presence of Ajay Kumar Bhalla, who is the Secretary of Ministry of Power, and his team.

Mahindra & Mahindra is the only passenger vehicle maker doing business in India to have two electric vehicles in the country already. The two vehicles are e-Verito and e2o Plus. The e-Verito uses a 20.5 kWh electric motor which as a certified driving range of 170 to 180 kms on full charge.

As the terms of the tender by EESL stated, the electric sedan should have a driving range of at least 130 kms on full charge and should not take more than six hours to get charged fully. It should also have a fast charge option, that is, within 90 mins.
