State of Electric Vehicles Market in India
In India the market is barely ready for widespread adoption of EVs with total sales accounting for less than 1% of all vehicles sold.
But the company founded by Atulya Mittal, Harvard Business School alum, is quietly confident of his company’s prospects. They predict a market size growth for electric vehicles to 5% in the coming years.
Interested customers can place an order either at Nexzu Mobility dealerships or its official website. The company intends on increasing its accessibility with plans of launching its products on Amazon, Paytm and other online stores.
Earlier known as Avan Motors, its product lineup also includes two scooter models — Dextro and Dextro + — and three hybrid cycle models — Roadlark, Aello, and Rompus.
Satisfied customers appreciate what this EV has to offer against rising fuel prices and its heavily polluting petrol/diesel run counterparts.
Other talking points were its eco-friendliness and cost effectiveness.
The company has goals of becoming one that is entirely indigenous with production, manufacturing and other activities being 100% India-focused and oriented.
It could become the next big thing and it will be entirely an “Aatma Nirbhar”, Made in India company. It also exemplifies the qualities of a Swacch Bharat, the cleanliness factor being a clean, green fuel run vehicle.
The future is electric and Nexzu could soon become a potential leader in the burgeoning ecomobility market in India.
