Manufactured under the Make in India initiative, the new cargo and passenger variants of electric three-wheelers will be launched across the country, starting from Punjab, Gujarat, and NCR, the company added.
"With our new electric additions, we aim to be technology leaders and provide intelligent, data-driven last-mile connectivity. Our advanced processes and infrastructure are the backbone of our business and empower us to create and deliver world-class products," said Director Vijay Kedia.
"We understand the specific needs of Indian auto drivers and have designed Atul Mobili and Atul Energie in-house based on extensive customer feedback and environmental concerns. With a focus on improving the range and performance of three-wheelers on Indian roads, both variants are built to provide optimum value for customers and a competitive total cost of ownership," said Divya Chandra, Director at Atul GreenTech.
