PMV Electric has been working on launching a two-seater electric quadricycle that will bear a stellar price tag and will make EVs accessible for a larger chunk of people.
PMV Electric’s EaS-E electric quadricycle will deliver a claimed 160km of range and achieve a top speed of 70kmph.
The vehicle also charges in about 4 hours according to the company. Founder Kalpit Patel aims at a target price of Rs 4 lakh and intends to launch the vehicle in July.
However, PMV Electric has not yet shared details on the approvals and testing process of the EaS-E electric quadricycle and has said the vehicle is in the final prototyping stage currently.
The company suggests that the vehicle is in the final stages of prototyping and is aiming for a launch in July. However, the vehicle will take some time to reach the production stage.
The vehicle called the EaS-E derives its name from various connotations that mean ‘Easy transportation powered by batteries and motors’ and ‘Eco-friendly and Sustainable Electric vehicle’.
The EaS-E electric quadricycle is a compact quadricycle that aims to be frugal and keep costs in check. Founder Kalpit Patel has expressed his desire to price the car at just Rs 4 lakh.
The PMV EaS-E will utilize a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor-based powertrain. The vehicle claims to have a top speed of 70kmph and deliver a range of 160km. The company also suggests a charge time of about 4 hours.
The vehicle, which can be classified as a quadricycle, has a length of 2915 mm with a 2080 mm wheelbase, 1600 mm in height, and 1157 mm in width.
The EaS-E also gets 170 mm of ground clearance. Interestingly, the two passengers are seated back to back much like on a motorbike instead of an adjacent seating setup as found in most cars.
The EaS-E will utilize a High Tensile Tubular Space Frame and will get a front-wheel-drive setup. Upfront, the vehicle will get a disc brake system while at the back it will get a drum setup.
The braking system will also provide regenerative braking.
The feature list brings along – DRLs, Cruise Control, Steering Mounted Controls, LCD Digital Instrument Cluster, AC, Remote Keyless Entry, Power Windows, Electronically Controller Mirrors, AM/FM/Bluetooth/USB, Rear View Camera, etc.
