    GenZe, Mahindra India's Electric Scooter Launching In USA With Price Tag Of $3000
    Mahindra India is all set to launch their electric scooter, GenZe in the United States in the next few weeks. The GenZe was unveiled in September last year and the engineering team at company's office in Palo Alto is readying the scooter for the launch. The bike will roll out with $3000 price tag and a promise to solve the transportation problems in the crowded cities to some extent. Being compact in size you won't have to struggle for the parking space. The GenZe scooter is going to be first of its kind delivery from Mahindra which already is a big brand in automobile manufacturing in India.

    The scooter itself is a simple looking motorcycle. Though I'm not impressed by the looks, Mahindra's design seems to be oriented towards making it a high-utility vehicle. There's a generous amount of space behind the rider to carry your laundry, groceries, books, backpack etc. Below the seat, you'll get space to carry a phone or a tablet along with a USB connection to charge it throughout your ride. The regular speedometer has been replaced with a weatherproof touch-screen interface. The display is bluetooth-enabled and capable of showing battery status, overall range you can expect from the remaining charge, diagnostic information about the vehicle and GPS information, of course.

    The scooter has been designed to deliver a range of about 50 Km (~31 miles) at a top speed of about 50 Kmph. A 1.4W (1.8 Bhp) electric motor drives the scooter deriving power from an Li-Ion power module (battery+controller+charger). Mahindra says that the scooter will be made in the USA and those of you planning to buy it should register on the official website (check source below).

    We also learn that Mahindra is working on a similar electric scooter for Indian markets and Mahindra's team is working on prototypes at company's R&D center in Pune. It'd be a while before we see what Mahindra plans for India. At the same time, rumors indicate at a possible EV coming out from the TVS Motor Company. No further information is available as of now; but we promise to keep you updated.

    When I have $3000, I'll buy a Royal Enfield.
