By expressing your interest or placing a preorder or signing up for our pmv newsletter, we will automatically let you know when EaS-E will be in your area for a test drive. You will be notified when the PMV Car will be available for test drive soon.
EaS-E can be charged from a regular household outlet of 220 V 15 A in less than 4 hours depending on the ambient temperature. Charging at a high or low temperature will affect the charging time and charge retention.
EaS-E will come with a range of 160 Kms on a single charge . This should be sufficient to cover the majority of the used cases for everyday intra-city travel requirements. And in case you still run out of charge, you can always charge it at one of the ubiquitous 15 A outlets found at a public place. Juice up enough for the journey back home.
EaS-E comes with an on board charger, so you can connect with any wall socket of 220V single phase supply. Each EaS-E will come with a charger, and the installation of the same is easy & can be easily managed by the local electrician. We will also have a set of authorised service providers to help with the installation of the charger at your residential parking spot. We will also have a tie up with public places like restaurants, QSR outlets, malls, theatres etc. which will allow you to charge from their premises at nominal fees while you enjoy a quick bite at their outlet.
EaS-E chassis is made of high tensile strength steel tubular structure, which uses a space frame design which is extremely rigid and protects the occupants. Also the EaS-E comes with a 3-point seat belt system, for added safety for the occupants. We will be following the safety guidelines laid down by the Govt. in order to ensure the safety of the passengers along with adherence to the law of the land.
We will have a door step service for servicing your EaS-E. No more waiting at the service station. And the same will be managed by authorised service centres of the company. The design of the EaS-E will make servicing a very simple process, and most replacement parts will be managed at a central location with next day delivery for the spare parts to enable quick resolution in case of breakdown. Additionally, we will provide nationwide 24-hour roadside assistance to EaS-E owners. More details will be provided as the service develops.
EaS-E is covered by a standard 3-year/50,000- Km warranty, whichever comes earlier.
Based on the cell manufacturers warranty, we anticipate that the cells will offer a lifetime of between 5-8 years depending on the usage of the vehicle. We are using LFP cells which offer a higher life cycle for the cells and are more stable in its operation. We are continuously testing our packs on the field to offer a better data point on the life of the cells.
The EaS-E can support charging at 7 Kw chargers, but if done regularly can significantly affect the life of the cells, so while it can charge at a fast rate of 0-80% charge in 60-90 mins, we do not recommend it be used regularly to keep the cells from deteriorating faster than usual.
The EaS-E has regenerative braking which allows the vehicle to capture energy back into the battery, by converting the kinetic energy of the vehicle at higher speeds into charge for the battery pack. As the vehicle slows down the battery pack gets charged momentarily, which adds to the overall range of the vehicle. There are different levels of regeneration that can be selected as per the drivers need. An aggressive regeneration allows for a higher charge on the pack, but will reduce the stopping distance. The hydraulic brake and Regenerative braking can be used together to more rapidly slow the vehicle. This also allows for less wear and tear on the braking system, thus allowing it to run for much longer compared to regular petrol/diesel vehicles.
The government regulations are in favour of the Electric vehicles, and the relevant tax incentives which are applicable to EaS-E will be offered at the time of delivery. Also the government regulations change with time, so the eligible incentives can only be offered at the time of delivery.
We plan to offer affordable financing options with leading financial institutions for making the purchase of EaS-E hassle free.
