In a step towards recognizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Atma Nirbhar Bharat vision, mobility tech startup EVage announces India’s first home-built ‘Exoskeleton Structure’ that will deliver a common platform for the launch of SUVs, Vans, Delivery Vehicles, and Trucks.
The disruptive technology innovation, from which as many as seven diverse kinds of vehicles can be manufactured, has been put together by a special team comprising aeronautical engineers who have worked on manufacturing European supersonic planes and world-class missile propulsion systems apart.
The team came together five years ago with the aim of easing the agony of manufacturing electric vehicles and conveying them within the reach of the common man in India.
Inderveer Singh, Founder & CEO, EVage commented that, in the last five years of R&D, the company has redefined the way vehicles are built.They design their EVs as one would look at manufacturing aerospace structures, that was a key differentiator in their approach towards building a ‘new-age’ car company.
The company’s distinguished approach was a result of the kind of team they have built. Their team of highly specialized experts has proven the value of this first-of-its-kind ‘Exoskeleton Structure’ in India. They have built their first vehicle in the logistics sector – a four-wheel commercial van that has done a test run of over 100,000 km, added Singh.
Significant innovations achieved in the last five years of R&D:
Aerospace inspired structure / Focus on light-weighting
Innovation in the bio-friendly material – lighter and stronger than steel
Focused on modularity – assembly, and design, EVage can customize the product
Proprietary e-platform chassis
Integrated powertrain – motor controller, gearbox and battery made from scratch
