      this price is OTR or Ex.Showroom? I am guessing this will be Ex.Delhi prices. So should be +50k in Bangalore as we pay the highest taxes in the country

      No it is the OTR price. Yesterday in CNBC they told the same thing. The price 5.96L OTR. So this should be OTR price.

      Ex-Showroom price will be definitely cheaper as the car is made in Bengaluru. But taxes of our state will make the price of car costlier than other states.

      No Sir. For this vehicle since there are no discounts given in the budget, many states are giving the discounts like Delhi 15% subsidiary and Karnataka some 2% reduction in tax etc like this.

      This is what was told in the review.

      Nice!

      I hope E2O has improved ride than its previous-gen contraption - Reva.

      My office even provides FREE charging ports for Electric Cars - Zero running costs!. But even then not many people (including me) didn't want to be seen even dead in a REVA!. E2O looks decent enough (of course with that quirky and disproportionate Mahindra DNA abound),and I hope it may change that "Ugly Car" perception.

      I'd rather wait for the Tesla or something on those lines before I quit on dinosaur fuel. 81 kmph top speed...bleh!!!

      TD of Mahindra's E2O

      Females have their own logics which no one understands and no one can defy! Such was logic given to me by my wife. We are looking for a car for her. She does not drive and does not want to drive and she knows that she can’t drive but she’s confident that she can drive Reva because it has no gear, runs on battery so its similar to driving Honda DIO which she currently drives. I could not understand the comparison because there’s a difference between driving a scooty and a car. But my wife actually drove E2O today whereas she has never driven any car (barring few training sessions with me with no results)

      Anyways, Today I saw add in TOI for Mahindra E2O and called dealers for details. Requested for test drive, initially Sales guy told me that he can come tomorrow (Sunday) but I insisted on having TD today as I am not available tomorrow. He checked with seniors and car was at my door step within 2 hours.

      Here’s my experience with E2O. I was impressed with the overall package.

      E2O is available in two variants – base variant known as TO and top end is called T2.

      Only difference between the top end and base is -base excludes Tocuhscreen Infotainment System and Reverse Camera.

      I must say the E2O is a feature rich car. It has a nice dashboard with 6.2” Touchscreen Infotainment Screen. This screen shows an open car with “GREEN” color internal component (battery) while idling. This “Green” color shows that battery is NOT being consumed. While driving this shows RED color components which signify battery being consumed.

      When a door opens, it shows pictorially which door is opened just like high end cars.

      Also its show % available of battery and Distance to empty (DTE). Speed displays digitally just like in Civic

      Positives:
      1) Feature rich car
      2) Fun to drive, its actually a toy car. No sound, no vibrations.
      3) Auto transmission 
      4) Future of Mobility services (FOMS) – this is an amazing service. E2O can be controlled by cell phone. You can switch on AC/Heater, switch on/off charging, Vacation Mode, remotely activate reserve in case you
      5) Tubeless Tyres
      6) Easy to park, given its size.
      7) Enough pockets to keep cell phone and other small stuff
      8) Effective AC
      9) 100 KM per charge (without AC)
      10) Service internal at 10K (free first three services)
      11) Push button on/off
      12) Reverse Camera
      13) OVRM can be adjusted from inside

      Negatives:
      1) No power steering.

      Challenges/hurdels in buying E2O
      1) Need to check if office can provide a plug-in for charging as wife's office is around 43 KM (one side) hence charging at office is a must
      2) Need to have a plug for charging in my parking slot in my socitey (this seems to be workable)
      3) E2O has to be registered in Delhi to avail the subsidy so need to find a Delhi address (again workable)
