Commenting on the announcement Mr. Nikhil Gunda, Founder, of GearHead Motors said, “Currently there has been a rise of Electric Vehicle penetration in the Indian Market by foreign companies trying to sell their substandard products. Due to these products being imported, they often do not align with Indian conditions, and hence the demand for Electric Vehicles in the market is seen to be on a decline. We came up with the idea to build a product that is affordable and will lead to an increase in homegrown products. With the help of the Make in India initiative, we have been able to accomplish our aim of creating a sustainable future not just for the nation but for the planet”, he said. The Hyderabad-based startup is also building an ecosystem that is set to support sustainable mobility in the future. The E-Bike market size is increasing and is projected to reach USD 80.6 billion by 2027.
