Noida-based EV startup One Electric Motorcycles starts export to eight country
Noida-based electric vehicle startup One Electric Motorcycles has announced that it has started exporting its products to the eighth country along with its domestic operations. One Electric stated apart from five African countries, the United States and Nepal, it will now start trials in the Middle East region. The EV company also added that it is currently planning to achieve 20,000 unit sales per month across three continents by the end of 2022.
One Electric stated that while the requirements of the Indian and African markets are similar, the markets of the Middle East pose the toughest challenge. CEO of the company, Gaurav Uppal said, “In the Middle East market not only do we require a constant speed of 100 Kmph, but should be able to manage this at 50°C ambient temperature, with a cooling system."
The company, however, remains confident about the cooling system that its EVs feature. “Each region has its own specific requirements and challenges, and our design architecture enables for a quick adaptation to suit those specific requirements," Shah added.
