A Kerala-based startup, Landi E-Horse, has launched its fast-charging electric bike and super scooter at the Huddle Global 2023, India’s largest beach startup festival, held in Kovalam, Trivandrum from November 16 to 18. The company claims that its products can be fully charged in 5-15 minutes and have a long-lasting Lithium Titanate battery that can last for 10 years.
The electric bike, named Landi E-Horse, and the super scooter, named Landi Eagle Jet, are designed to cater to the needs of urban commuters who want to switch to eco-friendly and cost-effective modes of transportation. The company says that its vehicles can run up to 100 km on a single charge and have a top speed of 80 kmph.
The commercial launch of the products was inaugurated by Transport Secretary Biju Prabhakar at the Huddle Global 2023, which is a platform for startups to showcase their products and interact with technology and industry leaders. The event is organized by the Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) and the Kerala University of Digital Sciences, Innovation and Technology (KUDSIT).
Landi E-Horse is one of the 78-odd players in the EV charging infrastructure sector in India, which is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. The company has partnered with major restaurants and shopping malls to install its charging stations, ensuring that EV users can easily charge their vehicles while enjoying their visit.
The company’s plan is to install 1,000 EV super-fast charging stations across the country by the end of the year with a total investment of around Rs 320 crore. The company aims to strategically position the charging stations in state capitals, state highways, and national highways along with tier-2, and tier-3 cities and rural places in the country.
“Our mission at Landi E-Horse is to provide sustainable charging solutions that empower electric vehicle users and accelerate the transition to a greener future. A notable hurdle faced by electric vehicle owners is the absence of sufficient charging infrastructure, making long-distance travel a daunting task. Addressing this issue, Landi E-Horse, an environmentally conscious business, has embraced the mission of establishing charging stations across the entire nation,” P G Ramnath, CEO & executive director, Landi E-Horse, said.
The company has already made its presence felt in all 14 districts in Kerala and plans to set up 100 more facilities in the state. The company also hopes to expand its product portfolio and offer more models of electric bikes and scooters in the future.
