An updated version of the e20 which so far has received a lukewarm response in the Indian market will also be shown. The new variant will get an improved charging technology that will considerably reduce the charging period. This should help in making the e20 a more desirable vehicle. The launch of this small car will take place immediately after the expo.

The Verito will be the first electric sedan to hit the market when it is launched by the year end along with the Maxximo electric light truck. It is said that the electric Verito sedan will retain the USPs of the regular car but provide cheaper running costs. The year- end launch is aligned to avail the benefit of subsidies which is expected to be offered by the Indian government on EVs (electric vehicles) by then.

Apart from this, there are also talks that Mahindra will showcase the XUV500 in its electric avatar.

“We have been working a lot on next generation electric vehicle technologies, which we will be showcasing in the five products we will display at the Auto Expo,” Mahindra Reva Founder and CEO Chetan Maini was quoted as saying
