Speaking at the inauguration of the new facility, Suhas Rajkumar, Founder & CEO - Simple Energy, said, “We started this journey four years ago and have reached a stage just one step away from production and deliveries. The inauguration of Simple’s first manufacturing unit in Shoolagiri, Tamil Nadu is a stepping stone for future expansion plans. Having the right and experienced talent has shown us the right path to churning out the best strategies in R&D and setting up a well-equipped plant that will commence the production of Simple One electric scooter."

The Simple One electric scooter is a rival to the Ather 450X, Ola S1 Pro, and the likes. Pre-bookings for the offering commenced in August 2021 while the production-spec version was unveiled last year. That said, the company says delays related to safety pushed the launch date for the One e-scooter.
