Mahindra is working on a few electric cars, one of which is the Mahindra eKUV100. In such a situation, the company can soon launch an electric car.
Anand Mahindra has also tweeted about this.
Mahindra is one of the first movers when it comes to introducing electric cars in India. Despite losing the race with the rivals, the domestic automaker is still keen to introduce electric cars. Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra takes a keen interest in EVs in particular.
On Monday, Anand Mahindra shared a video on his Twitter account featuring Roy Doring’s Ford Prefect electric car from 1968. He also wrote, “Never be afraid to be ahead of your time… #MondayMotivation (and I think a new electric car called the Dorring) would be a great idea to pay tribute to.”
The tweet immediately went viral among the automotive community. Now there is speculation that Mahindra is working on a new electric car that will come with the name ‘Doring’. The video shows the 1959 100E Ford Prefect which was converted to run as an electric model through Roy Doring. It is said to be the first electric sedan in Australia after the Second World War. Also, it was the last of the 51 vehicles converted by Doering into electric cars. The EV was first showcased at the 2018 Australia Day Carnivale in Sydney.
The Ford car was originally powered by a four-cylinder petrol motor. Doering transformed the car into an EV by fitting it with 13 exide batteries and a 3 kW electric motor. It used to be charged through a domestic 240V socket. Full charging took 3-8 hours. The car was capable of running 70 km on a single charge at a top speed of 60 kmph.
Electric cars are common on the roads these days. Many automakers are working on electric cars. However, back in 1968, driving a car on electric power instead of ICE was a revolutionary idea. However, Roy Doring was keen on e-cars.
