Automobile Pvt Ltd had set up its first manufacturing facility in Hyderabad in 2020.
“The current petrol two-wheeler market is around 1.50 crore per annum. Considering the growing e-two-wheeler market, we are enhancing our annual production capacity to nearly three lakh vehicles with the opening of this second plant,” said Vamsi Gaddam, Founder- Managing Director Atumobile Pvt Ltd.
The latest facility is the manufacturing unit powered by ATUM Solar Roof.
Atum 1.0, which is priced at Rs 54,999 (exclusive of taxes), offers a top speed of 25 km/hour and comes with a 48V 250W motor, a 3-pin portable battery and 14-litre boot space, among others, as per the company.
“As the demand for high-speed variants is high, we will also be launching Atum 1.1 with a top speed of 50 km speed and Atum 2.0 with a top speed of 70 km in the next few months,” he said, adding that the company is looking to garner around 5 per cent of market share in 2022, with its upcoming models.
Amid the push from the central government for faster adoption of electric vehicles in India, the EV two-wheeler market is expected to replace around 50 per cent of petrol vehicles with EVs by 2030, the company said.
