"Our cells are designed from the ground-up in India, for India; to suit Indian operating conditions, climate, and customers, and are hence going to play a crucial role in making India self-reliant while helping the nation realize its ambitious electric mobility vision," said Akshay Singhal, Cofounder & CEO of Log9 Materials.

So far, the company has deployed almost 3,000 batteries in EVs which have covered around 5.5 million kilometers, he added.

The start-up currently has a presence in more than 20 cities across the country, including Delhi, Bengaluru, Chennai, and others.

Further, the firm also launched its academic engagement program named "Log9 Rise" focused on supporting talent pool creation in battery technologies in the country.
