Shaikh added, “We can do so by converting conventional petrol/diesel cars into zero-emission electric vehicles. We have converted hatchbacks and sedans. Our kit components are certified and we can retrofit many other models with the same kit to provide an acceptable range to the customer. We are overwhelmed with the response we got from our well-wishers.” The company revealed that it is eager to share its experience while creating a potential impact.

The two said the company is open to taking up pre-orders for the conversions. The company is also open to taking up customized conversion projects for vintage and classic cars.
