Mahindra aims to take the 50,000-plus thrust Grand e-Cargo on Indian roads. According to the information, Mahindra’s new Jor Grand cargo vehicles have been built on the NEMO Connected Vehicle Platform. Mahindra claims that this platform provides the vehicle with the best operating efficiency.
Talking about the Jor Grand e-Cargo, it uses a 12 kW Lithium Ion battery, which gives it a range of 100 km on a single charge. It uses advanced lithium-ion battery technology that fully charges the battery in just 4 hours.
The electric motor fitted in this e-cargo is capable of generating torque of 50 Nm. According to Mahindra, this e-cargo is completely silent and it is quite easy to drive due to the absence of gears. Mahindra claims that the structure of the Jor Grand is made of good quality steel, while its design is capable of withstanding all kinds of weather. Mahindra Electric claims that the company will provide e-cargo service at over 800 customer contact centers and workshops.
