This quirky jugaad impressed Anand Mahindra and he was quick to share this innovative video on his official Twitter account.

The video clearly shows a man employing his innovative trick for charging his electric car through a gasoline-powered generator. The car owner explained the entire process of the charging innovation that left another person in the video speechless. To his astonishment, he had never seen a fully-electric Tesla car being charged by a Honda gasoline-powered generator in his entire life.
Anand Mahindra in fact even called on to Dr. Pawan Goenka, MD, Mahindra and Mahesh Babu, CEO Mahindra Electric, to say that with such a generator, there would be no anxiety as far as the all electric range is concerned.
Hey @GoenkaPk @Maheshsbabu We may have an answer to 'Range Anxiety' until longer duration batteries are affordable! Except that we should ensure it's a @PowerolMahindra small generator...???? https://t.co/k1I4qOk5uH— anand mahindra (@anandmahindra) August 9, 2020
