Mahindra REVA makes the connected car a reality with M2M connectivity from Vodafone

Business Need

Bangalore-based Mahindra REVA is a pioneer of electric vehicle technologies and one of the most experienced electric vehicle manufacturers in the world. After coming up with the concept for a new breed of ‘connected’ car – enabling owners and service teams to remotely access various features and functions of their vehicle – it needed to find a reliable way to deliver data connectivity to vehicles across India and around the world.

The solution

Vodafone has helped Mahindra REVA make its vision a reality – providing secure managed connectivity between the cars via its Machine-to-Machine network.

Business Benefits

  • Reliable M2M connectivity enables drivers to access various features of their vehicle remotely using a smartphone app or a dedicated webpage
  • Owners can check the state of charge in the battery of their car, control its air-conditioning, lock or unlock doors, find the nearest charging station and use many other innovative features
  • Mahindra REVA’s connected car – the e2o - also automatically provides SMS alerts when a door is left unlocked, a parking brake is not applied or a charging point fault
  • In addition Mahindra REVA service teams use the M2M platform to monitor a vehicle’s condition and proactively warn drivers when issues are likely to arise
  • Overall the partnership has helped Mahindra REVA to move one step ahead of its competition, while Vodafone’s global footprint will provide support for international expansion plans
Overall it was a great example of collaborative working between two companies with a similar vision of global innovation.

Our Code of Conduct

Reporting concerns

All employees and contractors have a duty to report any breaches of our Code of Conduct, which is known as our "Speak Up" policy. We have launched a global external reporting scheme which allows employees and contractors to report through a third party. This new process enables us to consolidate existing whistle blowing practice in local markets, increases visibility and ensures consistency of approach in responding to concerns raised from across the organisation. Concerns may be reported anonymously and the protection of innocent people is our priority at all times. People can identify themselves to our external partner using a PIN and receive feedback. Vodafone has a non-retaliation policy and will not take any action against anyone reporting a genuine concern, even if this is proven not to result in a breach of compliance.
