Automobile maker Mahindra Electric on Monday donated three battery-driven cars under its CSR initiative to an Non-Government Organisation (NGO) working for the physically challenged.

"NGO Wheels of Change will use our customised electric vehicles (eVeritos) as cabs under its initiative 'KickStart' to enable differently abled to ferry their passengers safely," Mahindra Electric said in a statement here.

The battery-powered cars have been modified to install a swivel out mechanism on the front co-passenger seat.

"The electric cars have been aligned to offer mobility for all, including the handicapped, under our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative," said Mahindra Electric Chief Executive Mahesh Babu.

The company handed over a fast charging unit for use on the cars.

Karnataka's Additional Transport Commissioner Hemantha Kumara gave the cars' keys to NGO trustee Ritheesh Shetty here.

The not-for-profit NGO said it works to make the world accessible to people with disabilities and promote inclusion of marginalised communities.

"We have worked as research and design partner for KickStart Services Ltd to promote transporting people with disability and senior citizens," Shetty said in the statement.

The customised electric cabs can also be hired by wheelchair users and crutch walkers to visit public places like parks, toilets and open grounds.

"The aim is to make public places accessible even to the handicapped than keep them in isolation," added Shetty.

As part of the $19-billion Mahindra group, the electric vehicle subsidiary makes e2o Plus hatch, eVerito sedan, eSupro minivan and electric rickshaw e-Alfa mini.
