EV startup , PMV Electric launched the EaS-E electric car, with a starting price of under Rs 4.79 lakh (ex-showroom). For a nominal fee of Rs 2,000, an electric PMV EaS-E vehicle may be reserved. The company asserts that more than 6,000 orders have already been placed for the electric automobile from India and other nations.
Along with its partners, PMV Electric may establish a manufacturing facility in Pune. By the middle of 2023, the business hopes to start shipping the EaS-E electric vehicle. The EaS-E electric vehicle’s top speed, according to PMV Electric, is 70kmph. It claims to be able to speed from 0 to 40 kilometers per hour in under five seconds. The Eas-E microcar’s specifications include a PMSM motor that has a output of 10 kW power and 50 Nm of torque. There are three distinct claimed range options for the electric car: 120 km, 160 km, and 200 km. The EaS-E electric automobile can be charged in 3–4 hours using an onboard charger from any 15A outlet.
The PMV EaS-E electric car, which weighs over 550 kg and can fit two adults and a child, meets their demands for daily commuting. The car features numerous driving modes and 4G capability. Remote parking assistance, cruise control, remote connectivity and diagnostics, Bluetooth connectivity, onboard navigation, and EaS-E mode for hands-free driving are a few of the main features of the EaS-E electric car.
“We’ve been looking forward to this day from the start of our journey, to share our vision of the future of urban mobility. Today we unveiled the EaS-E, your everyday car to the world,” said Kalpit Patel, founder and CEO, PMV Electric.
The Eas-E EV is a microcar with a two-passenger capacity and an overall size of 36 square feet. According to PMV, such solutions can reduce traffic in densely populated urban areas. For the first 10,000 clients of the base model, PMV Electric announced an introductory price of Rs 4.79 lakh at the launch event. The cost of the longer-range battery pack models is Rs 6.79 and Rs 7.79 lakh, respectively.
The Eas-E also offers additional convenience features like a digital instrument cluster and a compact infotainment screen. In order to improve safety, PMV Electric gave the mini EV a metal frame chassis made of highly durable sheet metal, as opposed to the tubular chassis found in micro-cars sold in other countries. Additionally, the EV receives a single front driver airbag.
“The team and I have been very fortunate to have had this opportunity and work on a product that not only pushed our creative and innovative limits to raise the bar but also paved the way to create a new category in the Indian automotive industry called the Personal Mobility Vehicle (PMV), alongside the SUV, sedan and hatchback categories. We look forward to hitting the production as soon as possible,” he added.
