Delhi-based startup company Hriman Motors will unveil India's first two-seater electric car with an infinite battery, which never needs to be replaced.
The new two-seater electric car has been named as RT90 and delivers a driving range of 200km on a single charge. It takes just ten minutes to charge the battery on a fast DC charger and 1-2 hours on AC charger.
Currently, the electric car is undergoing road tests and is expected to be unveiled by mid-2018. The electric car will come at a low running cost of just 50 paise per kilometre. The Total Cost of Ownership model will cost just Rs 6 to Rs 8 per kilometre with no other hidden costs.
The RT90 will be equipped with a 4G Connected IoT platform. Hriman Motors also states that the self-driving will soon become a reality as the car can be easily tracked and managed through a centralised control framework.
Apart from the RT90, Hriman Motors will also introduce two more products in the next two years. The Indian product portfolio of Hriman Motors will include a two-seater electric car, six-seater electric bus and a four-seater electric car.
The RT transporter electric bus will be offered in 5+1 seating configuration, and the running cost will be as low as just 50 paise per kilometre with AC. The electric bus will offer safety, comfort and convenience and will be a good alternative to the e-rickshaws.
The four-seater electric car is called as RT900, and it will be based on a high lift platform. The car will produce over 350Nm of torque with a driving range of 350km on a single charge. The electric vehicle will also sport Revolutionary Showcase Design and will feature a 10-inch infotainment system.
Founder of Hriman Motors, Captain Youvraj Kapoor said that the company's goal is to build a safe vehicle by utilising the best of technology available in the current market. Currently, Mahindra & Mahindra is the only automaker to retail electric cars in India. Now, Hriman Motors will soon join the bandwagon.
Hriman Motors is all set to unveil its two-seater electric car in the coming months. The Indian government is also working on setting up charging infrastructure to encourage the use of green vehicles. Several other automakers such as Tata Motors, Maruti Suzuki and Toyota are also working on developing electric vehicles for India.
