OTUA Electric Three Wheeler
The last couple of years has seen the last mile delivery and logistics industry go from strength to strength. It is also set to grow to a $5 billion market in the years ahead with several auto makers keen to grab a slice of this pie. The auto industry as a whole is slowly but surely moving ahead in the electric vehicle arena in a bid to conserve energy and save the environment.
Otua is Auto spelt backwards – a word play for the traditional AUTO. Otua made its first appearance in the reality show Shark Tank and a deal was signed by Kshitij Bajaj, Founder and CEO of Dandera Ventures with Ashneer Grover, co-founder and former Managing Director of BharatPe.
Otua is said to come in designed especially for the logistics and last mile delivery segment catering to both B2B and B2C logistics.

It has a large driver cabin with air conditioning and is a connected EV with a Driver Fleet Management App. Dandera OTUA is powered by a 15.8kWh battery pack along with a 12.8kW and 49Nm electric motor.
