Mahindra Reva Electric
Vehicles Pvt. Ltd flagged off India’s first all-electric car expedition
christened ‘Mahindra Reva Goodness Drive – Kashmir to Kanyakumari’. The ‘Mahindra
Reva Goodness Drive – Kashmir to Kanyakumari’ will
see three expedition ready, all-electric, zero emission Mahindra e2os being
driven to Kanyakumari (Tamil Nadu), covering the entire length of the country
in a month. The drive was flagged off by Arvind Mathew, Chief Executive
Officer, Mahindra Reva, in the presence of Aravinda De Silva, Former
International Cricketer from Sri Lanka.
Pitched as a drive for a
better tomorrow, the e2o convoy will pass through 52 locations within the
country and traverse a distance of over 5,000 kilometers. The idea for the
‘Goodness Drive – Kashmir to Kanyakumari’ is to demonstrate the advantages of
electric vehicles, thereby helping in the manifestation of a clean and green
eco-system. The rally will also propagate a zero emission, zero fuel drive in
addition to showcasing the full potential of a connected car and dispel any
myths related to range anxiety. It is the right opportunity for us to
demonstrate the car’s ability to traverse tough and difficult terrain, ability
to accelerate instantly, shortest turning radius of the car and convenience of
clutch free driving.
Speaking at the flag off,
Arvind Mathew, Chief Executive Officer, Mahindra Reva noted, “Mahindra e2o is
the Mahindra Group’s endeavor to offer its customers a clean, smart and
economical personal mobility solution and thus redefine sustainable
