India’s highest selling Lithium-ion electric auto now in Nepal

Kathmandu/Mumbai, October 26, 2021: Mahindra Electric Mobility Limited, part of the Mahindra Group, has launched a Lithium-ion-powered electric three-wheeler auto called Treo in Nepal. The Mahindra Treo Auto ‘Soft Top’ variant has been introduced at the price of NPR 8,40,000, ex-showroom.

The Mahindra Treo comes to Nepal through the Completely Build Unit (CBU) form. The vehicle is being manufactured at Mahindra’s Bengaluru facility in India. Bookings for the ready to deliver Treo autos have started in select areas of southern Nepal’s Terai region. Agni Energy, Mahindra’s authorised EV distributor, will sell the Treo in Nepal. With the Mahindra Treo, customers stand to save a significant NPR 2,00,000/year (when compared to petrol autos).

The Mahindra Treo is India’s largest selling Li-ion electric auto platform with sales of 10,000+ vehicles and has covered more than 63 million kilometres, since its launch in 2018.

Speaking on the launch, Suman Mishra, CEO of Mahindra Electric Mobility Limited says, “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.

Customers buying the Mahindra Treo stand to gain from the superior engineering and reliability on offer. With this astonishing set of features, zero emissions and desirable qualities, the Treo will set new benchmarks for performance as well as affordability in Nepal.
