India is witnessing a tectonic shift in its automobile sector. With government backing and the private sector chipping in, it is becoming a perfect ground for the formation of the ecosystem. And this rising ecosystem is inviting more players to come up with their own offerings.

Recently India witnessed an outstanding number of bookings of the new Ola Scooter. At the same time, there was another player, who was also brewing a silent revolution. Rugged, which is an offering from E-Scooter renting platform eBikeGo. The company has made massive strides in recent months.

 “It is India’s most environmentally friendly, intelligent, and durable electric moto-scooter, which will change the direction of e-mobility in the country and push the frontiers of innovation in the electric bike category,” said Irfan Khan, Founder & CEO at eBikeGo.

The company is targeting 50,000 bookings in the upcoming months. For the festive season of Diwali, Rugged has also been launched in four new color options – Red, Blue, Black, and Rugged Special Edition.
