Ahmedabad-based Trio Elevators has ventured into electric vehicle segment with an indigenous e-motorcycle that can travel a maximum of 180 km on a single charge. The electric motorcycles are being manufactured at a newly-built unit at Kadi-Thol road, located about 10 km from the manufacturing unit of Trio Elevators.
The brand launched currently offers one variant in four colours. The company, which is outsourcing a 72 V 70Ah Lithium-ion battery from a local manufacturer, is offering a three-year warranty and an additional three-year extended warranty for the battery, motor and controller. The cost of the battery makes up for 45 per cent of the cost of the motorcycle. The battery will take 6 hours and 35 minutes to attain full charge.
The motorcycle has been certified by the Automobile Research Association of India and can touch a maximum speed of 85 km per hour. If a customer drives at a higher speed, the range of the motorcycle will reduce. So, the maximum range of 180 km can be achieved at a speed of 45 km per hour. The company can currently manufacture 750 units per month.
