Mahindra GenZe 2.0

California city Mayor Libby Schaaf and Chairman of the Mahindra Group Anand Mahindra

Mahindra has just gone out and introduced its first electric scooter in the USA. Called the GenZe 2.0, the green scooter has solely been launched to grab a majority share in the now growing niche segment in the country. As a matter of fact, the GenZe 2.0 was not developed in India, but in Silicon Valley with production being carried out in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Launched in the city of Oakland, California in presence of honorary dignitaries including the city’s Mayor Libby Schaaf and Chairman of the Mahindra Group Anand Mahindra, the scooter is a well-engineered product that will make travelling easier and cost effective in congested city conditions. According to the Mayor, Oakland is the perfect place to combine electric scooters and electric bikes with solar power and mobility sharing. He also mentioned that Oakland is moving forward on the environmental aspect by launching Smart City initiatives including the likes of San Francisco’s Scoot Networks and Bike Solar Oakland.

Going into the details of the scooter itself, the Mahindra GenZe 2.0 is powered by a lithium-ion battery which can be removed and charged at any electrical port. This makes the scooter an easy to use and charge product. Other than this, the scooter has been designed in a way to offer a good amount of storage space so that most of the commuter’s belonging can be kept without any niggles whatsoever.

On the occasion, Anand Mahindra said that the creativity and determination of the Mahindra GenZe team can be seen through this remarkably distinctive product. An Indian launch cannot be contemplated as of now but we sincerely hope that Mahindra does bring the GenZe to our country soon because the electric scooter will definitely help in curbing the alarmingly high pollution levels in most Indian cities.
