IIT-Hyderabad Start-up, An Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad (IIT-H) incubated start-up PuREenrgy has developed the pure Electric Two-wheeler which gives high performance and range and will launch in the financial year. 

IIT-Hyderabad Start-up Launches Electric Two-Wheelers

The Electric Two-wheeler by the start-up is specifically made to suit the Indian conditions. The EV is all set to launch commercially all over India.

IIT-Hyderabad Start-up will Launch 10,000 EVs by 2019-20

The company will launch the 10,000 EVs in four models-Egnite, Etrance, EPluto and ETron. It is aiming to complete its EVs targets by 2019-20.

Company Has Set 18,000-sq.ft. the state-of-the-art facility

It has set an 18,000-sq.ft. the state-of-the-art facility, co-located with the IIT-H for performing Research and Development and for production of large scale EVs and electric batteries.

Electric Two-Wheelers-Less Weight 

The electric two-wheelers have less weight and designed to work under the tough conditions, it will give high discharge currents for better and speed performance.
