Moreover, with an ARR of Rs.120 crores, we plan to invest more in our production and R&D capabilities, add world-class products, strengthen our retail & partner network, and work further to build an EV ecosystem in India.”

With its ARR looking good, BattRE looks to invest meaningfully towards business expansion.The Jaipur based auto manufacturer is watching growth in electric vehicle demand with eagle eyes. The move to a bigger factory helps meet this demand. With manufacturing capacity increasing to 4000 units per month, the company is looking as 300 percent increase overall.
Last year, revenue increased by 255 percent. For 2021, YTD, revenue growth is pegged at 900 percent+. In order to sustain demand and growth, Battre is ready to launch two new products in the next 3-4 months.
