PMV EaS-E Launched As India’s Most Affordable Electric Car

Personal Mobility Vehicles (PMV), a Mumbai-based startup, has launched its first electric vehicle, the EaS-E, at a starting price of Rs 4.79 lakh (ex-showroom), making it India’s most affordable electric car. Bookings for the EV have already been started for a token amount of Rs 2,000 and the pricing is introductory for the first 10,000 buyers. The company claims that it has already gathered 5,000 bookings.

Essentially, the PMV EaS-E can be viewed as more of a quadricycle than a regular car, measuring 2,915mm in length and 1157mm in Width. Surprisingly, it is 155mm narrower than the Bajaj Qute and can only accommodate up to two people, one in the front and one in the back. It does, however, have four doors for easy access from any side. It is interesting to note that the EaS-E has a monocoque structure with metal body panels.
