Hyderabad Startup's High-Speed Electric Scooter Refuels For Just Rs 17!
While most original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in the electric vehicle space are resorting to either acquiring their batteries from a third party at home or importing from abroad, PURE EV, the IIT-Hyderabad incubated startup, is designing and manufacturing both its vehicles and batteries.

Last Sunday, the Hyderabad based startup launched its high speed electric scooter EPluto 7G, which has an International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT)-certified range of 116 km on a single charge and comes with a patented battery technology.

With an ex-showroom price of Rs 79,9999, the vehicle can attain a top speed of 60 kmph and reach 0-40 kmph in less than 5 seconds. Powered by a 2.5 KWH lithium battery pack, it takes nearly four hours for the vehicle to charge completely. Consuming just 2.5 units of electricity, the cost of refueling stands at a measly Rs 15-17 per charge. Both the battery and the vehicle have been designed and developed factoring in Indian terrain and weather conditions.

At present, it has a manufacturing capacity of 2000 units per month and the startup aims to deploy over 10,000 electric vehicles on the road during the current calendar year.
