GenZe Debuts the First Connected Electric Mobility Platform at #CES2015

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jan 8, 2015) - CES 2015 -- Mahindra GenZe, the leader in no-hassle, all-electric two-wheel transportation alternatives, announced today at CES the industry's first cloud-based connected scooter and mobile rider application designed to make getting around American cities and campuses faster, easier, safer and much more fun. The GenZe Cruise-Connect System™ provides the ability to monitor data through a cloud-based system and the ability to govern settings from a mobile phone.

Available in just a few months, the system is part of the connected GenZe 2.0, a breakthrough two-wheel vehicle designed from the ground up for urban and campus commuters. GenZe is exhibiting the GenZe 2.0 and its full line of electric bikes at its CES booth at the Sands Hotel Eureka conference facility, booth #75331.

"Increasing traffic congestion -- along with energy, pollution, parking, maintenance and other hassles -- are demanding new smart two-wheel solutions for city and campus life," said Vish Palekar, CEO of Silicon Valley-based Mahindra GenZe. "GenZe is refining urban mobility by delivering a whole new hassle-free, eco-friendly commuter experience. With the launch of the GenZe Cruise-Connect System™, GenZe is now the smartest two-wheel vehicle on the road."

GenZe Cruise-Connect™ monitors and reports on more than 100 different information points, delivering them through a cloud-based system to the rider's smartphone. The system also connects to experts at Mahindra GenZe and, where relevant, fleet operators to create a seamless solution for vehicle diagnostics, tracking, security and safety, including:

  • Remote diagnostics and prognostics
  • Vehicle usage patterns and driving summaries
  • Route mapping
  • Stolen vehicle tracking
  • Battery life and charge status

The GenZe 2.0 also has a removable lithium-ion battery that can be recharged at any standard electrical outlet, giving riders optimal freedom and ease of use. Its smart, utilitarian design offers ample rear storage space so people can get where they want and take all of their stuff with them. It allows for device recharging in a compartment under the drivers seat. The connected GenZe platform redefines mobility for a new generation of commuters.
