Lohia Auto will also showcase its, and India's first, electric three-wheeler concepts, and will also launch a new range of passenger and cargo e-rickshaws and diesel three-wheelers during the 2016 Auto Expo.
Confirming the unveil, Mr. Ayush Lohia, CEO, Lohia Auto Industries, said, "We will unveil our new range of electric two and three wheelers at India's biggest auto show, Auto Expo and the introduction of our e-vehicles will give further momentum to the shift towards electric vehicles. We are confident that like our previous vehicles, these technologically advanced electric two-wheelers will also find a sizeable market, and generate measurable interest & demand across all prominent regions. E-vehicles are clearly the favoured mode of transport in the near future since there is a pressing need to bring down the emission of harmful gases that are hurting the world climate and causing wide spread disruption in weather patterns. It is important that people are made aware about the advantages of e-vehicles over traditional means of transport and encouraged to make a switch so that we make our planet healthy once again for future generations."
This lithium-ion attery powered two-wheeler will have a top speed of 25km/h, and will be available with four colour options.
