The drivetrain has a 3 kWh battery pack that is AIS 156 certified and gets smart BMS (Battery Management System) and Bluetooth connectivity. The electric motor has a capacity of 3 kW. There is CAN based charger, controller and instrument cluster. This enables the motorcycle to get firmware upgrades in the future.
Mr. Rohit Vadera, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, PURE EV Startup, said, “Over the last two months, we deployed demo vehicles across our 100+ dealerships PAN India for test drives and received phenomenal response from the consumers. The bookings are now open for ecoDryft across all of our dealerships and delivery of the first batch of vehicles to customers will begin from the 1st week of March. As 65 per cent of country’s 2W sales are coming from commute motorcycles, we believe ecoDryft’s launch can become the catalyst in pushing large-scale EV adoption''.
Apart from ecoDryft, Pure EV is also selling electric scooters in the Indian market. They have Entrance Neo, EPluto 7G and Etry ST 350 in their line-up.
