Omega Seiki Mobility (OSM) and Log9, a Bengaluru-based advanced battery technology business, have announced a collaboration to deploy 10,000 three-wheeled electric vehicles in Tier II and III cities by 2024.
The Log9 InstaCharge battery packs will be used in the Rage+ three-wheeled EVs that will be deployed in all these cities.
In comparison to other existing solutions, Log9 asserts that these Instacharge battery packs offer nine times faster charging, performance, and energy life.
Log9 further boasts that its battery packs can work in temperatures ranging from -30° to 60° C and have a 15,000+ cycle operational life, ensuring a flawless experience for last-mile logistics.
The Rage+ will be able to use Log9’s InstaCharging stations, which promise to charge three-wheelers with the company’s battery packs in 35 minutes, compared to up to three hours for three-wheelers with traditional batteries.
Omega Seiki Mobility is a born electric OEM that seeks to empower electric mobility in India in its purest meaning, said Uday Narang, Founder & Chairman, Omega Seiki Mobility, on the cooperation with Log9.
Because two-thirds of India’s population lives in tier II, III, and smaller towns, switching to electric vehicles (EVs) in these places has become a must to tackle environmental problems related to vehicular emissions.
Because of their operating and maintenance expenses and zero tail-pipe emissions, E-3Ws are an economically and ecologically friendly solution for commercial use in these cities.
They firmly believe that India’s vision of becoming a completely EV-led country by 2030 cannot be fulfilled except if the Tier II and III cities and towns join the cause and add further fuel to the country’s e-mobility and green energy transition, Akshay Singhal, Founder & CEO, Log9 Materials, said of his company’s alliance with Omega Seiki Mobility.
They are optimistic that such an initiative by Log9 and OSM would give additional momentum to EV adoption in the Tier II and III markets, wherein B2B last mile deliveries are still evolving but accelerating in a large way.
