Mahindra REVA makes the connected car a reality with M2M connectivity from Vodafone
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.
Vodafone has helped Mahindra REVA make its vision a reality – providing secure managed connectivity between the cars via its Machine-to-Machine network.
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
