Electric vehicles (EV) manufacturer Mahindra Electric on Wednesday unveiled its comprehensive technology and product road map — EV 2.0 — under which it plans to ramp up manufacturing and charging infrastructure.

According to the company, under EV 2.0 it will make investments to develop new, high-end electric powertrains, motor controllers, systems integration and battery technology.

“The time has now arrived for EVs to become mainstream and Mahindra has the right technology and products for India,” Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra and Mahindra and Chairman, Mahindra Electric was quoted as saying in a statement.

“We will actively engage with the government, both at the centre and the state, municipal bodies and other private players for setting up a robust EV ecosystem.”

“Today, there are over 2,700 electric vehicles on road from the Mahindra stable, which have clocked more than 40 million km,” the statement added.
