Irfan Khan, Founder & CEO of eBikeGo said, “We are extremely happy to have acquired the license of manufacturing ‘Muvi’, one of the leading electric vehicles from renowned international automotive company Torrot in India. Taking about facts, approx. 25 million two-wheelers are sold every year in India alone. Out of which, electric two-wheelers only constitute a small fragment (0.3 %). This fraction has been constantly observed throughout the last 6 years which heavily indicates the lack of market acceptance. Presently, the major issue is that customer-centric approach is lacking. We are certain that traditional vehicles, which are the sole cause of Carbon Emission, can be easily and effectively replaced by Muvi. This will greatly help us to broaden our horizons and to further become the front-runner of electric mobility adoption in the country. Muvi, being a technologically advanced vehicle and already operating in 12 countries, does not require any homologation to supply in these markets, opening ways for global presence.”
