Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - AVIATION/MOTOR/CONSTRUCTI­ON - By Hiruni Dasanayake


In the present world where peo­ple have ac­tu­ally come to re­al­i­sa­tion the ef­fects of en­vi­ron­men­tal pol­lu­tion, now they give their best ef­forts to min­imise causes for pol­lu­tions as much as pos­si­ble.

Elec­tric cars have sev­eral en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits com­pared to con­ven­tional in­ter­nal com­bus­tion en­gine ve­hi­cles. More­over, they have lower op­er­at­ing and main­te­nance costs, and pro­duce lit­tle or no lo­cal air pol­lu­tion.

So elec­tric cars are catch­ing the at­ten­tion of a ma­jor­ity and for the peo­ple seek­ing a so­lu­tion for a lower en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact as well as a lower cost in do­ing so, Mahin­dra in­tro­duces its full elec­tric pas­sen­ger car; Mahin­dra e2o, giv­ing a green an­swer to city mo­bil­ity.

It is an ideal eco­nom­i­cal city com­muter car for two, with room for two more at the back with suf­fi­cient head­room and shoul­der room for four pas­sen­gers. The in­te­rior leather qual­ity is im­pres­sive for its size, while legroom re­mains good within both rows.

Mahin­dra e2o gen­er­ates three phase induction mo­tor that pro­duces 31KW @ 3,500 rpm and max­i­mum torque of [email protected] 3,000 rpm. All this al­lows the ve­hi­cle to reach a max­i­mum speed of 100 kilo­me­tres per hour.

The e2o is a car of the fu­ture with the abil­ity for the driver to en­able sev­eral fea­tures from an ‘app’ on their smart­phone. These in­clude, re­motely lock­ing and un­lock­ing the car from any­where, turn­ing on and off the air-conditioni­ng and even re­motely di­ag­nos­ing the car’s health and bat­tery lev­els. The app also al­lows driv­ers to tap into a reserve (power), in case the power runs out be­fore the car reaches a power out­let and pro­vides up to 10 kilo­me­tres of ex­tra dis­tance.

Fur­ther, there has been no com­pro­mis­ing of safety when it comes to the e2o which comes well equipped with front and rear anti-roll bars, ABS, ESP, emer­gency brake as­sist and dual front airbags. It fully com­plies with UK stan­dards and safety mea­sures. It is also equipped with hill hold con­trol for the ease of its driver. The car will never roll back on a slope nor will it make the driver up­hill a dif­fi­cult task.

The e2o also packs ten on­board com­put­ers that mon­i­tor ev­ery part to en­sure smooth func­tion­ing and safe driving.

Giv­ing driv­ers a ride to en­joy, a ‘Blaupunkt’ touch-screen in­for­ma­tion sys­tem comes stan­dard with the car and it also sup­ports Blue­tooth au­dio and mi­cro SD cards too.

Packed with a whole range of op­tions which in­cludes ABS, dual airbags, leather in­te­rior, al­loy wheels, telem­at­ics, re­verse cam­era, the e2o is now on a spe­cial of­fer for only Rs.1,895,000.

The best thing about this of­fer is that it is backed up with the af­ter­sales ser­vice given via Ideal Mo­tors is­land­wide branch net­work. This af­ter­sales ser­vice is known as the ‘fly­ing doc­tor’ con­cept which means Ideal Mo­tors will be pro­vid­ing you with their ser­vices com­ing to your doorstep no mat­ter where you and your ve­hi­cle are. Ideal Mo­tors are of easy reach hav­ing its branches spread through­out the country, so there’s noth­ing to worry about after sales ser­vices.

Talk­ing about the cabin’s qual­ity of this car, like many other fea­tures it is well above the com­pe­ti­tion. The in­te­rior plas­tics are a notch above some cars in this price range and feels ro­bust and of bet­ter qual­ity.

The elec­tric tail­gate also dou­bles as the rear hatch which can be re­leased man­u­ally from in­side in case of emer­gency. The boot space is optimal for a car of this size hence en­abling e2o own­ers to pack a cabin bag and still have more space for a lap­top bag and gro­ceries.

This car of the fu­ture is cur­rently avail­able in white and black colour op­tions through Ideal Mo­tors, avail­able along with the best after sales ser­vice com­ing to your doorstep.
