Manufactured at the company’s Chakan plant in Pune, with an annual production capacity of 30,000 units, this compact 2-door, 2-seater electric vehicle promises to revolutionize the Indian EV market. Setting itself apart from existing offerings, the car boasts features such as a moonroof, ample boot space, in-cabin driver assistance technology, AI-driven cloud analytics, and a uniquely intuitive user experience.

With plans to introduce the electric car into the BluSmart fleet, an electric ride-hailing company co-founded by Jaggi, GEVPL aims to address the evolving needs of urban mobility. Jaggi envisions the compact electric car as an ideal solution for single-passenger rides, reducing congestion and offering competitive pricing compared to traditional cabs.

As GEVPL gears up for the official launch of its compact electric car, the company remains focused on expanding its footprint in the EV market while driving sustainable transportation solutions for India's future.
