Mahindra Electric Mobility said on Thursday that it has launched its new electric 3-wheeler e-Alfa Cargo, priced at Rs 1.44 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The launch of e-Alfa Cargo marks the company's entry into the rapidly growing e-cart segment.
"The last-mile delivery segment is seeing excellent adoption of electric three-wheelers due to the significant operating cost advantages compared to fossil fuel-powered three-wheelers. We are now in the process of launching the Alfa e-cargo in response to customer requirements at Mahindra Mobility,” Mahindra Electric Mobility CEO Suman Mishra said in a statement.
He added that e-Alfa Cargo aims to provide a pollution-free and sustainable solution in the freight transport sector, with savings of Rs 60,000 over a diesel cargo 3-wheeler
The model comes with a payload of 310 kg and can cover a distance of 80 km.
The E-Alpha Cargo comes with a peak power of 1.5 kW and can reach a maximum speed of 25 km/h.
With an off-board 48V/15A charger, charging the e-Alfa Cargo is as easy as charging a mobile phone, the company stated.
