The Mahindra Reva e2o with power steering will be launched soon. Mahindra has silently updated the variants of the e2o, now there are three available. The price list page on the official website mentions “All prices are for models with Manual Steering. Prices with Electric Power Steering to be announced shortly” leading us to believe that the power steering equipped variants are also on their way. There are also rumours that a four-door variant of the e2o is on its way, but we are not sure if that will happen.
e2o T01 : Rs. 5.96 Lakh
e20 T2 : Rs. 6.68 Lakh
e20 T20: Rs. 7.16 Lakh
We are not sure if these are the final prices. We will update the list when the information is available.
The base T01 comes with a eletric motor that produces 19.8 BHP and 53.9 Nm of torque, the power output is lower than the other variants but the torque is similar. The T01 is bare boned in terms of features, and has a top speed of 75 KMPh and a total range of 80 Km.
The T2 and the T20 get a 25.47 BHP electric motor. They get features like power steering, music system, reverse camera, electric ORVMs etc. The top end speed increases to 81 KMPH and the range to 120 Km. The T20 is offered with Quick2Charge technology which can fully charge the batteries in 60 minutes through a commercial 3-phase electric outlet.

The Mahindra Reva e2o will be offered with power steering sometime this year.
