Even though Atom has very compact divisions, the high roofline can help to generate a good room for the interior. Furthermore, the Atom will have a glass area and massive windscreen for the airy feel. However, since the wheels can look shorter as compared to the tall vehicle, but it also makes the Atom look plain and boxy.
Mahindra has also claimed that apart from providing the safety of four-wheeler, Atom will have a safe enclosure for its occupants. The CEO of Mahindra Electric, Mahesh Basu said that the vehicle is designed in order to cater to various needs of passengers by giving a blend of both comfort and convenience.
