In a era where going green is no longer a conscious statement, but a pressing need of the hour. Goreen E-mobility, a two-year old Delhi-based startup has inked a joint venture with China's Opain Electric christened Gemopai, for manufacturing electric scooter in India. The company announced that it has launched its first removable lithium-ion battery electric scooter the Gemopai Ryder.
The startup said it is aiming to be a leading provider for electric mobility throughout India, and will bank on the over 15 years of experience through its joint partners, who have sold more than 15 million electric two-wheelers worldwide. Additionally, Goreen E-Mobility and Opai have signed MoU for joint venture technology transfer and cooperation agreements for further developing electric two wheeler models for the Indian market. The company said all the models of Gemopai electric scooters will be manufactured in India at its new manufacturing facility in Greater Noida. Gemopai said it is also in talks with leading technical institutes in India for conducting R&D for Battery Management System (BMW) and smart scooter applications.
Amit Raj Singh, co-founder and managing director, said: "We believe that the future will be driven by electric mobility, and we want to be at the forefront right here in India, where millions of people, every single day, have little access to technologically advanced clean energy vehicles."
According to the company the Gemopai Ryder can be ridden for 70km per charge, and will be available in five colours, and comes with various accessories options for the Indian market. The company also plans to launch two more high speed electric scooters within the next three-six months.
The company says the Ryder is equipped with hydraulic suspensions, disk brakes, digital speedometer, LED headlight, keyless entry, anti-theft alarm and mobile USB charging with little to no service requirement.
"Drawing on the expertise from Goreen E-Mobility and Opai Electric, we are a team of industry veterans, making the world of electric mobility more affordable and accessible to people everyday," said Singh. "Starting with our technologically advanced lithium-ion battery scooter, we are going to show India what is possible when a commitment is made to electric mobility."
The company says it has already opened few dealerships in the country and plans to to expand its network throughout India.
