Omega Seiki Mobility (OSM) and Bangalore-based advanced battery technology company Log9 have announced a partnership that will see them deploy 10,000 three-wheeled EVs in Tier-II and III cities by the financial year 2024.
The Rage+ three-wheeled EVs deployed in these cities will use Log9's InstaCharge battery packs. Log9 claims that these Instacharge battery packs provide 9 times faster charging, performance and battery life compared to other available options. Log9 also claims that its battery packs can operate in temperatures across -30° to 60° C and come with an operational life of 15,000+ cycles, thereby providing a seamless experience for the last mile logistics sector.
Supporting the Rage+ will be Log9's state-of-the-art InstaCharging stations that promise to charge a three-wheeler equipped with the company's battery packs completely within 35 minutes, compared to the up to 3.5 hours taken by three-wheelers powered by conventional batteries.
Speaking about the partnership with Log9, Uday Narang, Founder & Chairman, Omega Seiki Mobility said, "Omega Seiki Mobility is born electric OEM which aims to 'empower electric mobility in India' in its truest sense. Currently, the last-mile delivery ecosystem growing leaps and bounds, switching to EVs in Tier II and III becomes a must to counter environmental concerns due to vehicular emissions as Two-Third of India resides in Tier II, III and smaller towns. E-3Ws, owing to their low operating and maintenance costs along with zero tail-pipe emissions, make an economically viable and environmentally friendly option for commercial use for these cities. Our collaboration with Log9 is a major step in this direction. The company has a strong background of its modern technology and EV charging solution to ensure optimum range and enhanced productivity, will play a pivotal role in making OSM Rage+ Rapid EV India's most loved electric three-wheeler."
Vivek Dhawan, Director-Marketing, Sales, and Service at Omega Seiki Mobility added, "We are pleased to extend our partnership with Log9 which has been a consistent performer in the Electric Vehicle Technology market. We are looking toward developing a cohesive ecosystem for the sector and EV users across the country. We are going hyperlocal with the presence of public rapid charging infrastructure, thereby democratizing the instant availability of these chargers eliminating range anxiety."
Speaking about his company's partnership with Omega Seiki Mobility, Akshay Singhal, Founder & CEO, Log9 Materials stated, "We firmly believe that India's vision to turn into a fully EV-led nation by 2030 cannot be met unless the Tier II and III cities and towns join the movement and add further fuel to the nation's e-mobility and clean energy transition. With B2B last mile deliveries still evolving yet accelerating in a major way in the Tier II and III markets, we are confident that this initiative by Log9 and OSM will give further impetus to EV adoption in these areas. Plus, adopting EVs will also in the long run prove to be more profitable compared to the ICE vehicles. Thus, with guaranteed Power, Performance and Peace of Mind for the end-users and other stakeholders, Log9 and OSM are committed to bring about the EV revolution in Bharat."
Omega Seiki Mobility claims to be the first EV OEM to have 2, 3 and 4 wheelers in its product portfolio and has set up large scale manufacturing facilities in Delhi NCR and is now looking to expand into Pune. The company also claims to be a leading last-mile service provider in the country with its brand "UNOXpress". OSM is currently running its fleet of electric vehicles in 20 cities across the country with its EVs registering over 10 lakh kilometres a month.
Thoughts On the Partnership between OSM & Log9
Log9 & OSM's partnership will see a massive number of electric three-wheelers hit the roads in the next 2 years. With the help of Log9's extremely quick charging tech, these EVs will help increase the number of last-mile deliveries in Tier II & III cities done by green vehicles which should increase the visibility of these vehicles across the country.
