The company will train over 500 employees on electric vehicle manufacturing over the next five years. In this first year of production, Ultraviolet will manufacture close to 15,000 units. The long term plan is to scale up the annual capacity up to 120,000 units.
Ultraviolette Plans For The Future
Established in 2016, with a vision of creating high-performance future-ready electric mobility, the company has received quite a positive response worldwide. The company aims to develop India’s first ecosystem of high-performance electric vehicles. To enhance the performance of its products, Ultraviolette will share principles used in the aviation industry. The company will also build all its products with a target of 90 per cent localisation. This includes battery packs, various vehicle components and more. The manufacturing facility’s location has been chosen, keeping in mind Bengaluru’s strong supply-chain ecosystem.
