Mahindra Electric Mobility Limited 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. Treo is not only spacious but is also comfortable on rough roads.
The three-wheeler has been introduced in Nepal with 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 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 said, “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.”
