Bounce Infinity began the production of the E1 electric scooter from its manufacturing facility in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan. The EV maker has also commenced the roll-out of the E1s from the plant. The company had launched the E1 electric bike in December. The company claims that it is on track to fulfill its commitment to customer deliveries.
Commenting on this landmark occasion, Vivekananda Hallekere, Co-Founder and CEO, Bounce Infinity said, “With the roll-out of the Bounce Infinity E1 from our plant, we are thrilled that the first batch of our electric scooters will soon make its way to eagerly awaiting customers across the country. All of us are excited about the future of mobility in India, and are proud to play a part in it.”
The electric scooter is being manufactured at the Bhiwadi facility which is spread across three acres. The facility uses a mix of automation and human expertise. Bounce claims that over 200 people have been trained and deployed at the facility. In view of recent fire incidents, Bounce Infinity claims that they have put special emphasis on the safety and quality of batteries before they are shipped along with the scooters.
The plant currently has a capacity exceeding 200,000 scooters annually. It will be acting as the brand’s national manufacturing hub. Later this year, the company is also planning to put up another unit in South India with an annual capacity exceeding 500,000 scooters.
