Zoho CEO Sridhar Vembu on Sunday tried out the Mahindra Treo electric autorickshaw. The billionaire called it a “practical commute vehicle” and said he “loved driving it around”. He, however, listed a few suggestions and tagged Mahindra group chief, Anand Mahindra.
Pointing out the specs of the electric vehicle (EV), which runs at a speed of 55 km/hour and has a range of 125 km/hr on full charge, Vembu said it is a “serious upgrade”.
Vembu said the Mahindra Treo electric autorickshaw, with a take-home price of under Rs. 3.5 lakh, is an affordable family vehicle.
1/ Yesterday I got my new@MahindraElctrc Treo electric auto. This one is a serious upgrade - capable of 55 km/hour speed and a range of 125 km on a full charge. That makes it a practical commute vehicle and I love driving it around!
2) At global fora including Davos ‘19 I’ve said that futuristically styled, ‘cool’ e-tuktuks (3W) could well be the preferred mode of commuting in western city-centres. Our design head @BosePratap is already on the job. So pleased you’re a brand ambassador for this movement!(2/2)
