Mahindra Two-wheelers is reportedly testing its electric scooter, the GenZe 2.0 in India. The scooter was showcased in India at the Auto Expo 2016. The USD 2,999 (INR 2 lakh – approx.) electric scooter is already sold the USA.
Mahindra’s first connected all-electric scooter, the GenZe 2.0 is designed to help alleviate challenges associated with urban commuting, parking, congestion and pollution. A test mule of the electric scooter was spotted in somewhere around Pune and was reportedly travelling at speeds of 30-40kph with absolute ease. The official technical specifications claim a top speed of 50 kmph and a range of 50 kms per charge.
The scooter is powered by a removable lithium-ion battery that can be carried inside the house and plugged into a standard electrical outlet. The removable battery will come handy for folks who do not have a charging point in the garage. The electric scooter also gets ‘ample storage’ and a connected app. A 7-inch touch-screen display displays the range and speed of the scooter.
The GenZe 2.0 is designed with seamless IoT communication that allows continuous monitoring of more than 95 vehicle parameters, including:
- Battery state-of-charge
- Range estimation
- Remote diagnostics
- Alerts for theft, distress and geofence triggers
- Customized navigation features
