EV Startup GT-Force unveils e-scooters, electric motorcycle prototype
At the EV India Expo 2021 held at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, GT-Force unveiled E3W products for the domestic market, including two production-ready e-scooters and a prototype of an all-electric motorbike. The Haryana-based startup is strategizing its product stable with high-end E2Ws featuring quirky style and advanced technology.
Commenting on the unveiling, Mr. Rajesh Saitya- CO-Founder and COO, said " India is gradually moving towards EV from ICE. We are playing our role by offering quality products that are also affordable to the users. The idea is to join the larger national ambition, and to do that the end-user must get familiar with the EV technology."
"We are expanding our product line in a way that it addresses the travel challenges of people one by one. Our slow-speed products can easily cater to short-distance daily travel of children, women, and families. Once the EVs become accessible, people will start opting for them. It is only after getting familiar and comfortable with the technology that they will be able to make the informed decision of ICE to EV switch", he added.
The launched e-scooters are GT Drive and GT Drive Pro. The GT Drive is a high-speed scooter with a maximum speed of 60 kmph and a riding range of 150 kms on a single charge. It features Lithium-ion batteries, three drive modes, and a cruise control system.
The GT Drive Pro, on the other hand, is a low-speed variant offering a 75 kms range and 25 kmph of max speed. It is available with Li-ion and LEAD acid battery options for buyers to choose from.
Speaking on the development, Mr. Mukesh Taneja, CO-Founder & CEO, GT-Force affirmed that " People are having the misconception that EVs might not be able to meet long-distance travel requirements, or maybe they are inconvenient. All this is just because they have not tried the products yet. Therefore, we are working hard towards making the product available in every nook and corner of the country. The team has put in all the efforts towards widening the network of distributors to connect with a larger audience."
GT-Force's prototype of its first electric motorcycle, showcased at the expo, is expected to become market-ready in the second half of 2022.
