Terra Motors, the Japanese manufacturer of electric two- and three-wheelers, has taken the covers off the ‘R6’, which it plans to sell in India early next year.

According to Toru Tokushige, CEO and founder, Terra Motors, “India is one of the most important countries for our company. Currently, there are so many e-rickshaws from China without homologation. We design the vehicle for safety and durability. The R6 is now being tested by a certificated agency. We aim for 10,000 units of sales for electric three-wheelers within 2015. We are now developing 2 to 3 types of electric three-wheelers including the e-rickshaw segment with a competitive price”

He added, “Terra Motors is set to deliver electric vehicles of high quality and services. We have done the market research for two years and decided to develop the powertrain including battery, motors, controllers and chargers. With the expertise and a strong research and technology background for electric vehicles, we strongly believe that our products will exceed market expectations. Along with product superiority, we also will create service support.”

Terra Motors claims with full charge, the R6 can go as far as 100km and that the vehicle has been tested in India for durability.
