Mahindra hints at 2020 festive season launch for its electric Quadricycle

For nearly two years, Mahindra has evinced interest in going into the quadricycle section that presently has a single player– the Bajaj Qute, which is confirmed to get an electrical variant. M&M business provided a concept vehicle at the Auto Expo 2018 called the Mahindra ATOM, a distinct movement idea to “reimagine last-mile connection.”

In a call earlier this month, Dr Pawan Goenka MD of M&M, verified that strategies were on track for the launch of the last mile connectivity car and, like the principle, would be powered by an electric heart:

What we call internally C100, which is a last mile connectivity, electrical lorry, sort of a various concept than anything which is existing today, we will launch someplace around 2nd or third quarter of FY ’21

The Mahindra ATOM showcased at the Auto Expo was created to “alter the face of public transportation.” Here’s what the business had to say about the vehicle at the Auto Expo:

It is powered by Mahindra’s new electrical Powertrain which features batteries that can be switched to extend the car’s range, permitting it to run undisturbed for long hours. The ATOM is a key feature of Mahindra’s mobility vision for India, giving the country its own, indigenously-built, last-mile metropolitan movement option. It is likewise geared up with a smart connectivity system, making reservations and payments seamless and simple. At the same time its smart innovation allows one to seamlessly connect with multiple transport modes, keeping passengers posted on the next departing train, bus or flight and the nearby boarding points on a real-time basis, apart from a host of security and benefit features.

M&M had actually not defined the technical requirements, but being a low expense automobile we presume it includes a 48 V system powered by a LFP battery (lithium ferrophosphate) with an output of about 7.37 kWh (as in the Mahindra Treo automobile rickshaw) supplying a range of 80-100 km on a charge.

While style motivation and core values of optimal space in a minimum footprint would originate from the ATOM, the quality, fit and finish level would be far lower to be able to keep the automobile very cost effective. And considering that it is a quadricycle, it wouldn’t need ABS brakes, airbag or parking sensing units to pass homologation.
