Ideally we do not recommend comparing an electric car with the cheapest category of petrol cars, as electric cars have lots of features not available even in sedans!
But lets take a stab at this just to satisfy people out there and for the fun of it!
- Tata Nano CNG eMAX - (CNG + Petrol)
- Tata Nano GenX AMT - (Petrol)
- Maruti Alto K10 VXI AGS - (Petrol)
- Maruti Alto K10 LXI CNG - (CNG + Petrol)
- Mahindra e2o T20 - (Electricity)
The Mahindra e2o wins the small hatchback shootout, due to superior features!
The Mahindra e2o electric car has truck load of features that are easily ignored due to its small size.
People compare it to a Nano or an Alto and don't try to look deeper to understand the super features
People don't even bother to think of the intangibles benefits for them, for the environment and for the country, when using an electric car. Some of them are listed here and you can read more about these intangibles here
- Clean air in our cities
- Dependence on foreign oil
- Sense of independence
- Reliable with hardly any maintenance
Yes! The Mahindra e2o is expensive, but due to its incredible running costs, you can save as much as Rs 70000 every year, in fuel and maintenance costs. And those savings add up over the years.
While your petrol engine complains every 6 months and would need to go to a service station, the electric motor will happily chug along!
