Environment concerns and steeply rising crude oil prices world over are two chronic issues that are steaming heat and setting in qualms among car manufacturers worldwide. India too is no exception to it.
Car makers have been confronting an unfortunate situation, where at one hand they have to keep their company growing, earn sustainable profits and simultaneously conserve the mother earth for the very existence of human race. So is there a way out?
Yes, there is! Electric vehicles is the possible solution which will cater the personal transport needs driving new avenues of earning for the automobile industry and preserve the earth, its precious resources.
Leading manufacturers already have a head start in EV, why be Indian giants trailed. Leading from the front is Mahindra & Mahindra.
Come to this year’s Auto Expo 2014 at Delhi, and you will notice Mahindra is all set to unveil its electronic concept sports car, that will be identified as ‘’Halo’’.
Speculations are rife that Mahindra Halo will be two doors, two-seater sports electric car. From the images leaked in the media, one can say the car has stunning and sensational appearance that every sports four-wheeler wants to flaunt with immense pride.
Mahindra Halo is being developed and designed in house by its electric mobility division, Mahindra Reva, a renamed company, after it bought Reva Electric Vehicles Pvt. Ltd in the year 2002.
A sports car is most sought for its speed by its admirers, inching forward in this direction; Mahindra Halo will be able to achieve a top speed of 200 KMPH with help of 105 KW or 140 BHP powerful electric motor.
Not all this will come at a relatively low price; Halo will be available in the price band of Rs. 30 to Rs. 35 lakhs. Along with smokeless advantage, environment enthusiasts would find difficult to criticize it.
