Mahindra has handed over the first E2O electric city car to a UK customer.
First owner Stephanie Whittaker said: “I’m delighted to have collected my new e2o this morning and I’m excited to be Mahindra’s first UK customer. It was quite strange purchasing a big ticket item online, but it was actually a very straight forward process.”
“I purchased the car for the business as we have a number of clients within a 40-mile radius, so it made sense to buy an electric car suited to city driving. With the burgeoning city traffic, not to mention the damaging effects that car fumes have on the environment, the e2o is the perfect solution for smarter driving.”
Mahindra International UK chief executive, Steve Parkinson,said: “We’ve worked hard to develop our online offering and we’re thrilled to see our hard work paying off and benefitting our customers. Stephanie has seen the advantages of driving an electric car in our busy cities, such as not having to pay the London Congestion Charge, free parking, free or subsidised charging points and zero rated annual road tax. With so many benefits on offer, we’re confident that more and more people will opt for electric cars over traditional petrol or diesel engine vehicles.”
“We’ve initially launched our online business model in London, Birmingham, Bristol and Milton Keynes but with the increasing number of people committed to improving their living environments we’re sure to see our reach extend to more UK cities soon.”
