Sustainable mobility startup Dandera Ventures said that it is gearing up to launch its first commercial Electric Vehicle (EV) in the Indian market in September 2022. The company said that it has successfully completed road tests for the EV and is currently in the process of setting up charging stations and finalizing service locations ahead of the launch.
The first EV from Dandera will be exclusively targeted for use by last-mile delivery companies and independent delivery operators. Dandera added that the EV will feature industry-leading performance and capacity benchmarks and will be priced competitively. The upcoming vehicle has been completely designed from the ground up as an EV. All parts and components, including the batteries will be fully manufactured in India, for both Indian and export markets.
