“Yesterday I got my new @MahindraElctrc Treo electric auto. This one is a serious upgrade – capable of 55 km/hour speed and a range of 125 km on a full charge. That makes it a practical commute vehicle and I love driving it around! I have some suggestions @anandmahindra.”

“This electric auto form factor and the price point (take-home price under ₹3.5 lakhs) is a very affordable family vehicle. With volumes, prices can come down. Design can make this a really cool vehicle. When I drive my auto on rural roads, people ask me where to get one.”

Vembu continued in his third tweet – suggesting more design and colour variants, family and kid-friendly options. And advised Mahindra to come up with a cool marketing campaign to popularize the vehicle.

“Please offer a variety of designs and colours on the electric auto line. Offer family and kid-friendly options. Come up with a cool marketing campaign to popularize these low-cost electric vehicles. I see great potential for them. I love driving one!”
