NEW DELHI, India – The Ultra Motor Company (UMC), committed to sustainable development, is working a large programme to get Indians on light electric vehicles. UMC delivers the electric vehicle (EV) technologies, designs and services.

Lord Sainsbury of Turville, British parliamentary under-secretary of state for science and innovation, says, “UK government has initiated low-carbon vehicle partnership for clean transport technologies. Environment-friendly legislation in India must also be enabled.”

A tie-up with an NGO to provide micro-credit for financing E-bikes for rural women is in place. “Every month over 1.6 million two-wheelers are sold in India. India will soon experience a revolution in the local EV industry because they are 90% cheaper to run and 40% cheaper to buy. We have tied up with Hero to launch E-bikes and E-scooters,” adds Paul Dyson, CEO, UMC.

The E-bicycle has a competive price, but it really shines in the running costs. For now, bicycle, moped and commercial variants are available. The maximum speed of the E-moped is fixed at 25 km to do away with the need to wear a helmet, get a driving licence or vehicle registration.
