The Mahindra Halo is a two-seater fully electric sports car that has been developed by Mahindra REVA’s in-house team.
Mahindra Halo can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in about 9 seconds. It has a top speed of 160 km/h (100 mph) with a range of 200 km on full recharge (125 miles).
The company said depending on the support from the Indian government for electric vehicle, Halo will be introduced in the country but it could very well hit overseas markets first.
“There is a plan to commercialize Halo, we are working on a bigger power-train and a final design. It will take about three years to be production ready,” M&M Executive Director and President (Automotive and Farm Equipment sectors) Pawan Goenka said at the Auto Expo .
He, however, said the car could hit overseas markets first. “It may very well turn out that the market for the car may be outside India…unless there is government support for electric vehicles, the car could be launched outside India first,” Goenka said.
Mahindra also introduced a quick recharge variant of its existing electric car e20, equipped with smart port technology. The car can be fully recharged in one hour, while a recharge of 15 minutes will give a range of 25 km (15 miles).
