EVs Startup of the week- Cell Propulsion
Cell Propulsion is a Bengaluru based EVs startup founded in 2017 by the former ISRO employees Nakul Kukar and Paras Kaushal who designs and develops electric power trains. The startup offers electric mobility solutions.
The mobility technology company converts the Internal combustion engines to electric, known as retrofitting. The company retrofits commercial vehicles. It develops the advanced technologies and vehicles which accelerates the transition to clean and sustainable mobility.
EVs Startup of the week
It works with a vision to provide next-generation mobility solutions to commercial vehicles such as Cargo vehicles and public passenger vehicles owners and operators. The company provides vehicle finance and insurance services, fleet tracking and management services and chargers & charging infra EPC.
The team of three along with the co-founders, Nakul Kukar and Paras Kaushal designs and develops the electric power trains and also have Supratim Naskar as their chief technology officer.
