Editorial Test Drive Review of Mahindra E20
Mahindra E20 Interiors
The interior though more spacious and having features like an audio system and 6.2 inch touchscreen GPS is bland and cannot be compared to cars at the similar price point.. Lack of two more doors means that practicality is hampered quite a lot. The e2o will only work as a four-seater but all the four people in the car will have to be svelte. Headroom is tight but a lot better than the earlier Reva. The fit and finish though again improved is no match for cars at this price point and overall quality is not great at all.

Mahindra E20 Exteriors
The Mahindra e2o has been named keeping in mind the overall Mahindra Reva philosophy of “inspired by orange to go green” for sustainable living. The ‘e’ in Mahindra e2o stands for the energy of the Sun which is abundant and clean. The ‘2’ pronounced as ‘to’ signifies the connected technologies in the car, while ‘o’, represents ‘Oxygen’, the life force that sustains all of our existence on Planet Earth. It is certianly no winner of a beauty contest plus it lacks any kind of pesence though it is a damn sight better than the earlier Reva. The styling has been done by Dilip Chabbria but even he has not quite managed to add sparkle to the design. The front is decent but the odd side view and 80's rear styling does nothing for the eye. The tiny dimensions also mean that it lacks presence of any kind. The e2o measures 3.2 m in length, 1.51 m in width and 1.56 m in height. The plastic body and large panel gaps are not exactly impressive also. The e2o is available in six colours.

Mahindra E20 Engine & Performance
The new Mahindra e2o has a 25.3 bhp three phase inducion motor and 53 Nm of torque. It has 48v Lithium ion batteries under the front seats and has a top speed of 81 kmph. For performance you have to press 'B' for boost which gives most power but even then it is way too slow. However things are not that rosy as in the earlier Reva there were issues regarding its range and performance as both were limited and sadly both remain in the e2o. The e2o according to Mahindra has a better range and the ability to do higher speeds with passengers but in reality the 81 kmph top speed will mean when packed with four passengers you will be overtaken by a CNG bus on the highway and that is not exactly a great feeling for sure! The problem is that the 25.3 bhp is output just too tiny and cannot give any kind of performance and not to mention getting blown away by every other small car within the similar price point.The e2o has an automatic transmission.

Mahindra E20 Mileage and Running Costs
Then there is the big issue of range something that affects every electric car. Mahindra says that range on a full charge is about 100 km but in reality that figure will most likely be a lot less. Thus other than going to your local shop for buying milk, you can very well forget going anywhere unless you can beg borrow or steal someones electric supply. Things like using the music system or even going fast (?) will reduce the range so it goes withour saying that you will have to drive it like a monk. Though a dead battery will give another 10 km it is only feasible for short journeys.

Mahindra E20 Handling Braking & Safety
The handling is quite impoved over the earlier Reva and small dimensions but the steering is too heavy (no power steering) and the small tyres give it no handling scope at all. The e2o has a feature which is the smart phone lock. The e2o also features regenarative braking.
