E-trio Automobiles has become the first company in India to get Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) approval to launch retrofitted cars in India.
The Hyderabad-based electric-car firm is ready to sell kits and retrofitted cars in the market. The ARAI approval is for retrofitted car kits in Alto and Wagon R.
The start-up company has already set up an electric-car assembly unit on a six-acre site at Bolarum, which will have a capacity to roll out 1,500 cars a month.
The company gets retrofitted kits from China and Korea while they have developed controller themselves.
Etrio’s cars do not require gears. They come with a swift and smooth acceleration. The ARAI approved Alto and Wagon R can run up to 150 km per hour while the rest run at 210 km per hour after a charge.
According to company’s website the cars are safe and have maximum noise control riding capacity. These cars can be charged anywhere in little over 30 minutes.
