Delhi-based start-up Green Evolve Private Ltd (Grevol), a zero-emission automotive technology organisation, is partnering with Chinese li-ion battery giant Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. Ltd. (CATL) for long-term cell procurement.

Grevol has also announced the launch of their cutting-edge lithium battery packs which have been created for their upcoming 3-wheeler (L5N category) light commercial vehicles. The company will be using CATL cells for their cargo 3-wheeler (L5N) vehicles and will be launching them in the Delhi-NCR market.

Jayant Gupta, Founder and CEO, Grevol, said, “Using these high-grade cells we can reduce the charging time to less than 2 hours by providing fast charging option to achieve 200 Km range/day and a life of 200,000 Km or up to 8 years by our estimates,”

Based on trials and customer feedback, Grevol claims that its upcoming L5N category vehicle can deliver a longer range with a higher payload capacity in comparison to other EVs in the three-wheeler segment.

“We had to insist the E-commerce delivery partners take our vehicles for longer routes as they were not confident with electric vehicle capabilities based on earlier experience with other electric 3 wheelers they have used so far. The delivery partners were pleasantly surprised to note that Grevol vehicles provide a much superior range with heavier payloads,” informed Jayant.

Grevol’s CTO, Sanjay Aggarwal, said, “We conducted comprehensive lab and on-road tests to identify and resolve the challenges associated with the adaptability of lithium-ion batteries in the warmer climatic and tough road conditions prevalent in India.”

The company manufactures zero-emission IoT-enabled vehicles and advanced lithium-ion battery packs to meet the requirements of last mile mobility. Grevol has conducted pilot runs with Flipkart, Big Basket, Porter, E-comm Express and others.
