  • Know the state of charge in the battery of their car and how far they can travel with the available charge·
  • Remotely control its air-conditioning and set schedules to pre-heat or pre-cool the car before they use it · Lock or unlock the car doors · Find the nearest charging stations·
  •  Receive alerts on various events with the car such as a disruption in charging due to power cuts, safety related reminders such as a door being left unlocked or a parking brake not applied.
  • Get an emergency boost charge with a command on the smart phone to go an extra 8-10 kms.
  • Have the Mahindra Reva Tech Help Desk remotely do prognosis and diagnostics of the car.

The e2o uses Vodafone’s m2m services  Ltd, for this connectivity and provides a holistic and cutting edge experience including many other useful and innovative features,  specially tailored by Vodafone Business Services (VBS), the enterprise arm of Vodafone India.
