The company has elaborate future goals to bring out electric versions of all cars in the market and maybe try and have 100% of their vehicles in electric version by the year 2030 but whether they can achieve the feat is a different question which only future can tell. The brand has been awarded with 40% of the massive 10,000 EV fleet order by EESL and thus they see in it a massive opportunity to boost its EV program. With India thriving to adopt zero emission pure electric mobility by 2030, Mahindra is aiming to remain at the top position of the domestic EV market.
