In the two months after its launch, this Made-in-India e-bike has received one lakh bookings.
The Rugged e-bike has a projected range of 160 kilometres and an intriguing design that is not traditional.
The rugged e-bike comes with an LCD cluster, a USB charging port, and the ability to lock and unlock it using a smartphone.
Electric Bike: eBikeGo announced on Monday that its Rugged electric bike, which was released in India two months ago, had received over one lakh orders. eBikeGo claims that the paid bookings total roughly Rs 1,000 crore, indicating that the electric vehicle revolution in India is still on two wheels.
Although eBikeGo touts Rugged as the "most powerful electric bike ever created," the company is also seeking to expand its reach across the country. It has announced the closure of Rugged master franchises in three states: Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Maharashtra. It has also opened 22 dealerships around the country.
eBikeGo anticipates the pace of bookings to stay high in the future, especially given the current holiday season. "It is India's most environmentally friendly, intelligent, and durable electric moto-scooter," said Irfan Khan, Founder and CEO of eBikeGo. "It will change the direction of e-mobility in the country and push the frontiers of innovation in the electric bike category."
According to the firm, it hopes to reach 50,000 bookings within the next few months. Rugged is now available in four additional colour options for Diwali: Red, Blue, Black, and Rugged Special Edition.
