A TRULY ‘MOBILE’ CAR FROM INDIA
Closer home, the new Mahindra e2o electric car is being touted as a “truly connected car” being among the first in the world to support telematics. The car will have a SIM onboard and drivers will be able to remotely connect to the car for a variety or services. For instance, you can use a PC or smartphone to see how much charge is left in the car battery or remotely switch on the air-conditioning minutes before you drive it away or just lock/unlock the car. Using this connectivity, Mahindra Reva Tech Help Desk can also remotely do prognosis and diagnostics of the car when needed. The car too can initiate communication through SMS if the driver has forgotten to lock the car or if there is a power failure as the vehicle is being charged. And thanks to the Intelligent Energy Management System onboard, the car can give details of your drive efficiency for the past six days.
