Convert Two Wheeler Into Hybrid
Bangalore-based Green Tiger Mobility is the World’s 1st company to convert two-wheeler vehicles to run on both petrol & electric modes (Dual Powertrain). It has received ARAI & RTO approval to convert all major brands of scooters up to 125cc.
Green Tiger retrofits existing scooters (and motorcycles) to Dual Powertrain vehicles. The converted vehicles have both (existing) ICE powertrain and electric kit inside them. The rider can choose between the Electric & Petrol modes. The electric mode has a range of up to 60 km and a top speed of 60kmph. So finally now you can Convert Two Wheeler Into a Dual Powertrain.
Green Tiger Hybrid Scooters
Vehicles converted by Green Tiger are different from typical Dual Powertrain 2-wheelers as the ICE and Electric engines are independent of each other. If the vehicle breaks down in any 1 mode, the rider can easily switch to the other mode and continue the journey.
The dual-mode function is very beneficial for people who ride a lot daily. Riding in electric mode with petrol as backup solves range anxiety which is a challenge with electric vehicles.
The electric kit inside consists of various components as seen in the below image, of which the major components include a removable battery that can be charged at home, an IP67 Rated Hub Motor which is water & dust proof, and a VCU device that includes IoT & Sim which makes the vehicle smart and secure.
The company is currently converting 7 major brands of scooters, namely Honda Activa & Dio, Hero Maestro & Pleasure, TVS Wego & Jupiter, and Suzuki Access registered on or after 2012. Motorcycle conversion is in the testing stage and will launch later this year.
The Dual Powertrain conversion is priced at ₹65,000 + tax which covers the cost of the electric kit, Battery, and the entire conversion process. The rider can save up to ₹65,000 every year on petrol costs if they run 35 km/day.
The converted vehicle can be tracked & managed remotely using a Mobile app, on both modes. Smart benefits include Theft-protection which locks the vehicle and triggers an alarm in case of theft and the Fall Alert which sends messages to emergency contacts in the event of accidents, among other benefits.
Green Tiger has launched its vehicle conversion in Bengaluru, and Karnataka, and will expand in the rest of India with time. Those interested in vehicle conversion can either visit GT’s experience center in JP Nagar, Bengaluru, visit their website, or simply fill in this inquiry form.
