The CEO of GoGreen BOV said the following,
"When we started 4 years back, there used to be virtually no market for electric bikes in India. A lot of players in the industry could not sustain themselves mainly because their product was not made for Indian conditions and mindset. We were able to gain a foothold in the market by designing India's first e-bike with a range of 120 Km per charge. Since inception we have sold over about 14000 vehicles."
The four new scooters launched will be available in shades of orange, red, green, purple and grey. Currently GoGreen BOV has presence in four states across India and plans to expand to other states and city in the near future.
Battery For Electric Vehicles
The company sources the battery for its vehicles from South Korea and both the firms have planned to setup a manufacturing plant on the outskirts of Bangalore. For this purpose they are planning to invest INR 59 crore, which GoGreen BOV claims is the highest investment for any electric vehicle in India.
