Welectric - Hardware Technology Expert - Electric Two Wheeler (4-8 yrs)
Our Why :
The Future of Mobility in India is not Autonomous Cars or Flying Taxis but Electric Two Wheelers (E2Ws).
In the next 10 years, India will sell more two wheelers (2Ws) than any other country in the world. Over 80% of all vehicles sold in India are 2Ws. Therefore they cause majority of our air pollution and economic strain due to dependence on imported crude oil. Not to mention the significant recurring maintenance expenses that users have to bear. There has been substantial development in E2W technology (most critical being the move to detachable lithium batteries) and total cost of ownership is also lower than internal combustion 2Ws in most cases. However, less than 1% of new 2Ws sold are electric.
Welectric is an ambitious early stage start-up re-imagining an India with electric two wheelers, re-imagining the entire 2W ecosystem and working on solving problems impeding the adoption of E2Ws.
Who we are :
We are an early stage start-up that has made significant progress in the last few months in spite of the Pandemic. We are part of the NSRCEL Launchpad program and have also recently closed our angel investment round. We are being mentored by some of the most experienced professionals in the industry.
