Written by Nizam Shaikh

Hyderabad-based Startup Pure EV has announced that the electric mobility solutions brand will be launching the ‘EPluto7G’ in the international market by October 2020. The brand’s first international market will be Nepal, as part of its expansion plan. Pure EV is partnering with White Lotus Motors (WLM) for distribution of its EV two-wheelers in Nepal. The brand has also announced that the EPluto7G has been designed and developed factoring the gradient requirements of Nepal. The battery pack and the powertrain has been optimised to deliver the capability required in the tough terrain in the country. The E-scooter’s powertrain has also been optimised to deliver enhanced efficiency, further improving the user experience.

The Pure EV EPluto7G comes with a 2.5 kWh portable battery that claims to return a range of 100 km on a single charge. Along with the long-range, the EPluto7G can also do a top speed of 60 kmph. The brand is also offering a battery warranty for 40,000 kilometres, giving the customers peace of mind in the long run. The Pure EV Epluto7G is powered by an in-house developed lithium-ion battery developed and manufactured by PurEnergy, the parent company of Pure EV. The battery pack has been designed to operate in a wide range of operating temperatures, especially keeping in mind the climatic conditions of India and Nepal. 

Pure EV is also working closely with White Lotus Motors (WLM) to establish workshops for after-sales service and spare parts availability. WLM will establish two outlets in the capital city of Kathmandu. Pure EV’s expansion into Nepal is part of a larger strategy to build the international market. Pure EV has also announced that the startup is looking for distribution partners for other markets as well. 

For Nepal, the brand plans to make an annual sales of 1,000 scooters and have wider coverage in the top five cities of the country within a year. Pure EV also plans to expand to other international markets, particularly South Asia, South East Asia and East African countries, over the course of next year.
