The Mahindra Reva E2O: Zoom Is The First Car Rental Company In India To Offer A Plug-In Electric Vehicle For Self-Drive

Here at Zoom we are proud to introduce the newest member of the Zoom fleet: the Mahindra Reva E2O.  Zoom is now the only car rental company in India to offer a plug-in electric vehicle for self-drive.  Our members are free to hire the car by the hour or by the day.

The new E2O has a state-of-the-art lithium ion battery.  The E2O can travel up to 100km without recharging.  That gives a whole new meaning to “The Freedom of Four Wheels” – freedom for you from the petrol pump, freedom for India from imported oil, and freedom to take a deep breath here in Bangalore.  It’s time to bring the Garden City back!

Unlike with many earlier electric vehicles, the E2O doesn’t compromise on power – or style!  It features a B mode or “Boost” which increases performance and acceleration (but be careful because the extra power will drain the battery more quickly when it is activated).  Like Zoom, the E2O is all about freedom and choice!

The Reva is perfect for self-drive on Bangalore’s cramped roads.  It has a turning radius of just 3.9 meters.  More importantly, it is fully automatic so you never have to worry about shifting gears again.  No more getting stalled out in Bangalore’s stop-and-go traffic.  With bold, striking angles, the Reva is also a real eye-pleaser.

The Zoom team is particularly proud about the E2O’s environmental benefits – and the E2O has plenty!  Each E2O we have in our fleet abates 9 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year – that’s 6 times the annual carbon emissions for the average person living in India!  The E2O is also the only vehicle in India that can run on solar energy – and running the E2O on solar energy for one year saves so much energy over a diesel vehicle that it is the equivalent of planting 60 trees!

Don’t take it from us, take it from Zigwheels India; “There’s so much technology in the Mahindra E2O that it’s a little tough grasping onto everything in one go. But as far as real world driving conditions are concerned, the car does every bit to bust myths about electric vehicles. It is a revolution in the way we look at personal mobility in a future that is more environmentally conscious than ever before.”

For a unique self-drive experience in Bangalore, feel free to rent the new E2O by the hour or by the day.  More information about pricing can be found here.
