Kinetic Group To Come Back Into The EV By Launching The Kinetic Luna Electric
Prior to this, the Kinetic Group entered the electric market with the Kinetic Green, which built the three-wheelers, e-rickshaws, etc. And now, the company will be returning to the market with the electric version of the Kinetic Luna. As of now, there is only one electric moped and it is the Gemopai Miso. There is news about the Techo Electra Saathi which is in the pipeline and might be launched soon.
As we all know, the original Luna came with no gears, a 50 cc engine, and pedals to help the bike move if required.
Sulajja Firodia Motwani, the CEO, and founder of Kinetic Green revealed that there arent any immediate plans of getting into the electric two wheeler space and the company is concentrating on building the EVs ground up such as electric rickshaws.
As per reports by Financial Express, Kinetic has sold off the shares in their Kinetic Motor Cycles Limited, which means that the company is free to launch their own two wheelers now.
Kinetic Luna: Specifications, Features, and Price
The revamped Kinetic Luna will be run electrically and will be powered by a 1 kilowatt motor. The battery on the moped will be a Li-ion battery considering the shift from lead acid units that are used by all leading electric vehicle manufacturers.
As per reports, the Kinetic Luna electric will run about 70-80 km with a top speed of 25 kmph. Due to this, the customers will not be required to register the bike as it comes under the slow-speed category.
The engine will probably imitate the one on the old models with some modifications required for the new era, such as a thumb starter, USB charging slot, LED DRL, etc.
As per reports, the price of the Kina Luna Electric will be less than Rs. 50,000 on-road.
