Kinetic Luna to come back soon in an electric avatar, production begins

Remember Kinetic Luna, the moped that brought a mobility revolution to India 50 years ago? The two-wheeler is all set for a comeback, but silently, being powered by an all-electric powertrain. Kinetic Engineering Ltd. (KEL) announced that it has already commenced production of the chassis and other assemblies of the Kinetic Luna electric. The zero-emission two-wheeler will be launched soon, said the company. The EV would be sold by Kinetic Green Energy & Power Solutions, claimed the company in a regulatory filing.

The auto company has claimed that at its peak, internal combustion engine-powered Luna sold more than 2,000 units per day. KEL's Managing Director Ajinkya Firodia believes the electric Luna would perform very well, just like its ICE-powered version. "We expect this business to add over 30 crore annually over the next two-three years as the volumes of the E-Luna increase. This will also help KEL to boost its presence in the EV segment," he said.

The KEL has further said in its regulatory filing that with a growing electric vehicle market in India and a preference towards load-carrying vehicles, the E-Luna aims to check all the boxes with its offerings. Upon launch, the E-Luna would target the commuter segment in lower-tier markets and the load carrier category as an all-electric last-mile mobility medium. However, KEL has not revealed any details about the pricing, battery pack and specifications of the upcoming E-Luna. Also, the auto company has not revealed anything about the possible launch timeline for the EV.
