e2o Owners

As I look back, I recollect ever since we decided to buy the electric vehicle, our search for EV owners started… to want to know their experiences, the ups and downs they faced in real life scenario, what kind of situations they faced with traffic and the true facts about the working of the vehicle. We, personally had lots of questions unanswered, there was anxiety, confusion, uncertainty along with lot of excitement and determination to take this step ahead… Some people were very forthcoming, some didn't answer at all…

Then, we came across Plug in India and an e2o owner Mr Kamlesh Mallick. His experiences, his videos helped us answer our questions, and we had an outstanding support from Mahindra guys as well… Our calculations and understanding was beginning to match up with reality…

After many test rides and long phone calls with the sales executive about our queries; we bought the vehicle. Hurray!

Few days back PluginIndia shared our reallifestory : http://www.pluginindia.com/reallifeevstories.html

That the 'One', as seen from the flat.

Vacation Mode - Phone App for e2o

Another amazing feature with the Mahindra e2o is its 'Smart phone application'. The e2o app works great on our iPhones. It gives all information that an e2o owner would need about the car.. Shows distance the car can travel at a certain charge, Charge points, temperature levels, Switch on / Schedule the airconditioning, Revive battery charge in case of complete discharge and much more…

What is most amazing is the provision to set the car on 'Vacation Mode'... It kind of lives the lifestyle you live... So, if you are on a vacation then why shouldn't the car enjoy the same status ;) haahhaha!

On our trip to Vadodara we had plugged in the car and kept it on 'vacation mode' using the phone app. Amazingly! it took care of our battery charging while we were away on another destination. It brings down the charge to 20-30% and hibernates till it gets the command to charge back… We even extended our vacation and it worked. So on the day of our arrival to Mumbai, it charged back to 100% and was ready for us to drive around.

What effortless control and ability to interact with the car… It amazes us each day and can't wait to explore more.
