The Delhi auto market is big on the Mahindra eVerito’s list

The eVerito, all-electric sedan will be the cheapest in Delhi thanks to the huge State subsidy coupled with the government’s FAME initiative. This would translate to about a subsidy of about INR 1.5 lakhs and a VAT reduction of 5% from about 12.5%. The FAME initiative would give an additional subsidy of about INR 1.38 lakhs. And all of this would translate to about a total subsidy in incentives adding up to about INR 3 lakhs. But road tax and registration charges would be as applicable and is not included in the subsidy.

Owing to the diesel vehicle ban in New Delhi and emission issues, Mahindra is positive that the eVerito would make the right impact on the Delhi auto market. The cheaper pricing by way of subsidies and incentives and also the vehicle’s unique features and performance would make it all the more attractive. And not to miss, since it is an all green sedan, it could have more takers as there are no hassles. Mahindra is hoping to retail about 350-400 eVeritos a month in New Delhi alone which is definitely promising.

 Made in India - Made in Nashik, Maharashtra

  1. Mahindra charts an annual production plan of 15,000 eVeritos at its Nashik plant.
  2. The battery pack and kit for the eVerito, will be sourced from Mahindra Electric’s Bangalore plant.

Thus summing up Mahindra’s endeavour to give back to Mother Nature in the thoughtful words of Dr Pravin Shah, President, and CEO (Automotive), M&M at the launch of the eVerito, “It has always been our endeavour to make electric vehicles more accessible and the eVerito is the first electric sedan in our portfolio. With issues like environmental degradation, pollution-related challenges, climate change and energy security, there has never been a better time to switch to electric vehicles.”
