eBikeGo has collaborated with Log9 Materials for introducing InstaCharge (superfast charging technology) for Velocipedo, an electric trike that will be launched soon.
eBikeGo hopes to disrupt the Indian EV market as well as the global one with this partnership. Log9 Materials will also adapt its InstaCharge tech to allow Velocipedo to be charged in a matter of 10 minutes.
Velocipedo is an electric trike that was designed in Europe. It has 2 front wheels and 1 back wheel. There are two seats for the two passengers. According to the start-up, the unique design of a three-wheeled electric, the networked vehicle with three wheels will revolutionize urban mobility. It combines safety and comfort with the speed of a motorbike. The electric three-wheeler can be used for many purposes, including personal mobility, ride-hailing, and cargo transport for businesses. Production will start in 2023.
Dr Irfan Khan, founder and CEO, eBikeGo said, “We at eBikeGo are very happy to announce a collaboration with Log9 Materials with the objective to integrate the Velocipedo fleets with superfast charging technology, which in turn will improve charge-time, optimising delivery cycles and offering power, performance and peace-of-mind to the end-users. This strategic partnership with Log9 Materials will also help us strengthen our expansion and enable us to scale across India and the world.”
Kartik Hajela, co-founder and COO, Log9 Materials said, “We are thrilled to be working with eBikeGo to further our foray into overseas markets. We are optimistic that with our cutting-edge battery technologies that provide an unprecedented 10+ years of life and InstaCharging capabilities, together with eBikeGo’s forward-thinking advanced vehicle platforms, we will be able to carve out a dominant position for ourselves in the future. Our partnership will provide the finest in terms of value and lifestyle for our audience, and we look forward to increasing the bar for urban mobility.”
