“This new electric two-wheeler offers unparalleled affordability with an ex-showroom price starting at INR 49,999,” said Pritesh Talwar, Electric Vehicle Business Head, Lectrix EV. Consumers get a high-speed electric car at the expense of a low-speed car. “This disruptive pricing strategy eliminates the need to rely heavily on government support, ensuring a sustainable and economically viable solution for both OEMs and customers.”

“The concept is simple yet transformative: by delinking the battery from the vehicle and offering it as a service, the electric vehicle experience becomes easier and more affordable for customers. When you compare our Battery on Subscription model to ICE vehicles, the benefits of the former are incomparable. The initial cost of purchasing an ICE vehicle amounts to INR 1 lakh, which is double the cost of our offer. Moreover, the monthly investment in petrol is increasing, and this, combined with the maintenance cost of an ICE vehicle, makes our subscription plan more economical. He added, “The major challenges for EV adoption have been "High prices and uncertainty around the battery, with this launch we have solved both these challenges."
