Mr. Mukesh Taneja, CO-Founder & CEO, GT-Force, affirmed that “People are having the misconception that EVs might not be able to meet long-distance travel requirements, or maybe they are inconvenient. All this is just because they have not tried the product yet. Therefore, we are working hard towards making the product available in every nook and corner of the country. The team has put in lots of efforts towards widening the distributors’ network connecting with a larger audience.”

Commenting on the unveiling, Mr. Rajesh Saitya- CO-Founder & COO, GT-Force, said, “India is gradually moving towards EV from ICE. We are playing our role by offering quality products that are also affordable to the users. The idea is to join the larger national ambition. The end-user must get familiar with the EV technology. We are expanding our product line to address the travel challenges of people one by one. Our slow speed products can easily cater to short-distance daily travel of children, women and families. Once the EVs become accessible, people will start opting for them. It is only after getting familiar and comfortable with the technology that they will be able to make the informed decision of ICE to EV switch.”

Additionally, the brand has also unveiled the prototype of its first electric motorcycle to the audience at the expo. The motorbike is expected to be launched in the market in the second half of 2022.
