Boom Motors, a new high-tech EV brand from Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu, on November 11 unveiled Corbett, which it claimed to be “India’s most durable and long-lasting bike.”
The bike features a 2.3 kWh battery – which can optionally be doubled to 4.6 kWh – giving the vehicle a best-in-class range of up to 200 km, said a press release. The batteries are swappable and they come with a portable charger that can plug into any household socket thereby removing the requirement for charging infrastructure.
The vehicle, said the release, can hit a top speed of 75 kmph with the two-battery option, can support 200 kg loading, and can climb the steepest gradients in cities.
Mr Anirudh Ravi Narayanan, CEO, Boom Motors, said, “In order to fuel the transition to EVs, Boom Motors believes that vehicles should offer value, convenience and peace of mind to the customer – only then they will switch en masse. To demonstrate our best-in-class value, Boom Motors is the first EV company to offer customers to purchase our vehicles for five-year EMI.”
Boom Corbett, he said, “is unlike any other bike in the world. It is beauty, beast, and brains combined. It’s an absolute stunner.”
