Auto Expo 2014: Mahindra Halo electric sportscar revealed

The Mahindra Halo can do a claimed 0-100 dash in under eight seconds.

Mahindra & Mahindra is really pushing its alternative propulsion technology at the Auto Expo 2014. First was the hybrid version of the XUV500 and the company’s electric Formula E racing car, which were showcased yesterday, and now, the company has unveiled a slew of EVs from its electric division Mahindra Reva. 
 
The most exciting of these by far is the Mahindra Halo, an all-electric sportscar concept, and the first thing you’ll notice is that it looks great. It’s compact and well proportioned, the LED detailing is well executed, and the ‘double bubble’ roof just screams sportscar. And apparently, it’s no slouch either; the company claims it can dash from 0-100kph in under eight seconds. The brochure also hints at a 160kph top speed, and a 200km range, but there’s been no official confirmation on that. Keeping with its techie theme, the interior gets a large tablet on the centre console that displays various car functions in real-time and doubles up as a multimedia player too.
 
The other two electric cars on display was an all-electric version of the Mahindra Verito, which has a claimed range of 80km and a top speed of 85kph, as well as an updated version of the Mahindra e2o electric city car. This new e2o gets a new ‘Quick Charge’ port for even faster charging, and this also lets customers use the car’s battery to power their home in the event of a power cut – a common problem in several parts of India.
