Speaking at the launch, Mahesh Babu, MD & CEO, Mahindra Electric said, “The recently announced Telangana EV policy by Chief Minister K Chandrasekar Rao will ensure EVs are more accessible and affordable in the State.”
He added, “With about 5,000 Treo vehicles plying across 400 plus districts of India, Treo has already covered 1.6 crore km on Indian roads. The new Mahindra Treo will further help our customers’ savings potential and is a great fit for the State’s first and last mile mobility needs. We believe that the Indian EV growth will be dominated by electric 3-wheelers as it is economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.”
