The company’s entry into electric two-wheeler production comes in the backdrop of the government revising its FAME II policy, providing higher incentives for such vehicles – from a uniform subsidy of Rs 10,000 per kWh to Rs 15,000 per kWh for electric two-wheeler from June 2022 this year.
Keeping this in mind, many electric vehicle makers are either going to launch their EV two-wheeler or will soon launch their EV in the two-wheeler segment which will give them a stronghold in the market.
The Company like Omega Seiki Mobility analyzed such opportunities and launch their new advanced electric two-wheelers which are FIARE and ZORO. The FIARE will be a public-use electric scooter that could be used for travel and general purpose. Zoro will be a commercial single-seater electric two-wheeler with a covered carrier at the rear which one can use for delivery and transportation.
What we know so far:
These electric two-wheelers can have a detachable electric lithium-ion battery weighing around 12 kg and can be equipped with two such batteries. This feature allows you to take the battery out of the vehicle, charge it at home, without battery theft to some extent, and it won’t be a problem to charge an EV if you live on the floor.
The EV will come with a slew of features, mainly a digital advanced display, alloy tubeless wheels, and a reverse gear option with a BLDC hub motor the company plans to make it easy to access the EV for all age groups who can ride. and make it legal. They kept their EV with a top speed of 45 km/h and a range of 85 km on a single charge.
The company also wants their EVs to be used for commercial purposes, so they are partnering with home delivery ventures like Zomato and Swiggy across the country to see a huge commercial ground.
