The company is working on emission-free mobility for over a decade now. They have a customer base of over 50,000 users along with more than 200 retail outlets across India.

Being electric, the scooter will be able to save tons of fuel. A recent data report shows that electric vehicles can save running costs by up to 85-90% compared to conventional petrol or diesel model.
The online booking facility for the scooter is currently available in Bengaluru, Chennai, Mumbai, Pune, and New Delhi. The most popular scooter by the brand is Apere Zeal. It is powered by a 1.2kWh brushless DC hub motor that is coupled to a portable 1.8kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
