Revolt founder Rahul Sharma said at the launch, “The RV400 is the first step towards providing sustainable, affordable mobility to every Indian home. The RV 400 challenges every convention that riders have pertaining to EVs — power, styling and aesthetics, range, battery charging infrastructure, security, sound, and service.”
He further added that Revolt is betting big on developing a connected ecosystem which will be an integral part of all its products.
In order to give customers options for charging, the Gurugram-headquartered firm will also set up “swapping stations,” initially across Delhi where riders can swap their batteries. The rider can ‘easily remove’ the portable battery to charge at home or office, the company said in a statement.
The AI-enabled motorcycle has an ARAI certified range of 156 km and is powered by the Revolt app, the company said, adding that the lithium-ion powered batteries of the RV 400 can be charged as well as swapped. Riders can charge the battery in less than four hours by plugging into any 15-ampere socket.
The company said, “The AI-enabled motorcycle is powered by the Revolt App which is available on both Android and iOS,” It comes with features such as bike locator, door-step battery delivery, mobile swap stations, anti-theft and sound selection.”
With the new venture, the company is eyeing a double-digit market share of the over 21 million two-wheeler market in India. Revolt has set up a manufacturing plant in Manesar that has a capacity of 1.2 lakh vehicles per annum in the first phase. The company is investing around ₹500 crore in the facility and equipment.
