Established in 2004 and founded by technopreneur Samrath Kochar, Trontek had started as a small trading company for electronic components for TV, radio, chargers, and other electronic gadgets. In 2007, Trontek began offering lead-acid batteries for stationary energy storage. Over the next year, it expanded its portfolio to 2W mobility. And, thus the foundation to the brand TRONTEK was laid.
It was in December 2012 when e-Rickshaws made their way into India that Trontek identified the untapped potential of electric vehicle batteries in the Indian market.
The company was amongst the first to launch e-rickshaw batteries to cater to the emerging demand. By 2014, Trontek had established itself as a major player in the e-rickshaw battery segment. It has also achieved the unique distinction of being the first company in India to introduce batteries for EVs in 2014, as well as to be the first company to introduce Li-ion batteries in 2017.
The brand based its business on the principle ‘‘build product around the lives of people’’ and developed value for money e-Rickshaw batteries that were designed to deliver maximum mileage per charge. Today, over 1 lakh e-Rickshaws are powered by Trontek batteries, as the company continues to increase its command on greater market share while offering excellent after-sales support all over the country.
Strengthening its brand offering down the electric mobility pathway, Trontek launched the lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicle series, which were specially launched in January 2017 to serve e-bike, e-tricycle, and e-Car segments as well as supplying to major original equipment manufacturers in the Indian mobility segment.
Today, Trontek holds the ‘Numero Uno’ position in the Indian EV battery market.
The first-mover advantage and technological innovations adopted in the Battery Management Systems developed by the R&D team have helped Trontek gain a strong foothold in the fast-growing EV battery space as the company established itself as one of the most credible brands offering world-class products in India.
With a strong focus on the electric two and three-wheelers that comprise a significant share in the auto OEM segment, it is working with most of the leading OEMs across the country. The company has sustainability as the foundation of its business. Being a responsible alternative energy solution provider, it makes eco-friendly batteries to power life and energizes the future.
