Bookings for India’s most affordable EV open; Price announcement soon
While electric vehicles are gaining much popularity nowadays, the most affordable passenger EV right now is the Tata Tigor EV, which costs upwards of Rs 10 lakh. A Mumbai-based electric vehicle startup named PMV Electric is going to launch a micro electric car with a small footprint for urban electric mobility in the sub 10 lakh space. According to Express Drives, PMV Electric’s founder, Kalpit Patel, the company will bring a two-seater electric vehicle named Ease-E in July 2022 at an expected starting price of Rs 4 lakh (ex-showroom).
The new PMV Ease-E (pronounced as ‘easy’) is designed on the lines of new-generation global micro electric vehicles like Citroen AMI and MG E200. The design looks sharp and unique with a T-shaped front closed grille with daytime running LEDs across its upper width and lower positioned rounded LED headlamps.
Running on 13-inch alloy wheels, the two-seater PMV Eas-E, which has one seat at the front and one at the rear, gets a four-door design. The car gets a vertically-aligned rear windscreen and a slanted gloss black panel in the lower half with LED tail lamps stretched across its width.
The car also gets modern features like a full-TFT digital instrument console, free-mounted touchscreen infotainment system, remote keyless entry, USB charging port, manual AC, cruise control and rear parking camera and sensors.
Range of 120 km
Powering the new PMV Eas-E will be a front-mounted 15 kW (20 bhp) electric motor, which can propel this car to a top speed of 70 km/h. The car will have a 10 kWh lithium iron phosphate battery, which is expected to provide a range between 120 km to 200 km per charge, depending on the variant you choose.
Using a 3 kW AC charger, the battery of the Eas-E can be charged for under four hours. Measuring 2,915mm long, 1,157mm wide and 1,600mm tall, the new PMV Eas-E has a ground clearance of 170mm, a wheelbase of 2087mm and a kerb weight of 550 kg.
PMV Electric has started taking online bookings for the Eas-E for a refundable amount of Rs 2,000, while the launch of the electric car and deliveries are slated to happen at the end of the second quarter of 2023. Like the Ola S1 Pro, the PMV Eas-E will be sold to the customers through a D2C (direct to consumer) mode, thus eliminating the conventional process of sales through dealer outlets. PMV is eyeing producing 15,000 units of Eas-E in the first year of production from its manufacturing unit at Chakan.
