Mahindra Electric Mobility today launched its Lithium-ion-powered electric three-wheeler auto Treo in Nepal. The Mahindra Treo Auto ‘Soft Top’ variant, sold as a Completely Built Unit (CBU), is priced at NPR 840,000, ex-showroom.
Bookings for the Treo, which is manufactured at Mahindra’s Bengaluru facility, have commenced in select areas of southern Nepal’s Terai region. Agni Energy, Mahindra’s authorised EV distributor, will sell the Treo in Nepal. Mahindra Electric says the Treo helps customers save a significant NPR 2,00,000/year (when compared to petrol autos).
Since its launch in 2018, the Mahindra Treo has sold over 10,000 units in India and is the coiuntry’s largest selling Li-ion electric auto.
Speaking on the launch, Suman Mishra, CEO of Mahindra Electric Mobility, said: “Nepal is a fast-developing economy, with eco-friendliness as well as long term sustainability on its agenda. With the Nepal government promoting electric vehicles the time is just right for us to launch our range of electric three-wheelers here. Last-mile mobility products are a focus for Mahindra & Mahindra and the Treo auto is an embodiment of technology combined with sustainability that will significantly enhance the livelihood of its owners with huge savings when compared with a conventional petrol auto.”
The Treo is not only spacious, with the best-in-industry 2,073mm wheelbase, but is also comfortable on rough roads owing to the hydraulic shock absorber in the front and rigid axle with leaf spring at the rear. Hydraulic brakes with good stopping power have also been provided in the vehicle. The fully digital instrument console displays a wide array of information such as the State of Charge (SoC), driving range, speed, drive mode engaged and more.
