Detel, a homegrown electric 2-wheeler brand, announces its plans to expand its dealership to 150 sales partners by the end of this year. Currently, it has a stronghold in the states of Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu. The company mentions that its main area of focus will be the northern region of India. Detel also plans to add an assembly plant in Gurugram with a manufacturing capacity of 1,00,000 low-speed electric vehicles per year. The company aims to achieve 100% localisation which will resonate with the Indian Government’s ideology of ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’.
Current Products On Sale
With the influx of various electric vehicle companies in India, Detel is marketing themselves with the USP of being the world’s most economical electric 2-wheeler brand. Currently, there are a total of 3 products on sale, Easy Plus, Easy Loader and Easy. The newly launched Easy Plus and East Loader will play a significant role in the B2C and B2B segments especially in tier 2 and tier 3 markets. Both the electric scooters come with a 350-watt motor coupled to a 24AH battery. The company claims that the scooter can go up to a top speed of 25 kmph and has a range of 60 km per charge. The body is a powder-coated metal alloy. The tyres included are tubeless armed with drum brakes both at the front and rear. The included 5 Ah charger takes about 7-8 hours to charge the batteries to their full capacity. The main difference between Easy Plus and Easy Loader is the load capacity which is 150 kg and 250 kg respectively.
Future Of Electric Vehicles In India
As the world moves towards digitalization, the automotive sector is also catching on and going all-electric. Most of the European countries like Norway, which sold almost 50% of all new cars as electric are transitioning to e-mobility at a nice pace. Even in India, the trend is catching up slowly and in about 10 years from now, we can expect electric vehicles to give tough competition to their fuel-powered counterparts in terms of sales figures. Detel is one such brand that aims to disrupt the two-wheeler eclectic vehicle segment with its economical offerings.
