Revolta Motors is a Bangalore based startup that is working to introduce emission-free electric bikes and scooters with the unveil scheduled at the 2016 Auto Expo.
With the first real threat felt due to the disturbing pollution levels in Delhi, it is necessary that India starts looking into less alarming sources of fuel that are emission free to say the least. Given the opportunity present, the country could host local startups coming forward to develop electric vehicle technology. While they may be no Tesla, the effort is clearly appreciated at this point. Hence, keeping us excited is a new Indian manufacturer called ‘Revolta Motors’ that will be participating in the 2016 Auto Expo.
Located in startup centre Bangalore, Revolta Motors reveals itself as a company dedicated to developing clean, efficient, reliable and affordable urban transportation solutions. The company states that its range of bikes and scooters come with a top speed of 60 km/hr and are powered by an external charging point that charges the batteries to 80 percent in 2.5 hours. The electric bike maker promises an effective range of 80 kms on a complete charge, satisfying the need of urban commuters.
Revolta Motors will be showcasing its range of electric bikes at the Expo next February while sales are expected to commence in the latter part of 2016. A clear perspective on the brand’s strategy will be available at the time of unveil giving an insight on the company’s expansion plans and most importantly the products itself. The company claims it believes in 100 percent emission-free personal transport.
This is not the first attempt towards electric bikes in India. However, the market really did not seem interested and ready for products like these in the past. More so because of the puny battery life and weak build quality on a lot of the sub-standard components that went into the making of such scooters. At present, Hero MotoCorp with ‘Hero Electric’ is actively selling electric scooters in this space and Revolta will be locking horns with the auto giant when it arrives next year.
