Revolt RV400 has a top speed of 85 kmph and has a range of 150 km on a full charge
With lockdown underway, and reinforcement of lockdown in regions where it has been lifted partially, business operations are being forced to be revised. When Revolt Intellicorp began business, they were going from city to city in a planned manner. Those plans too have had to be reassessed so as to function under current directives.
Under current circumstances, Revolt has delivered its first batch of electric bikes to buyers in Ahmadabad and Chennai. In Ahmedabad, the EV brand operates out of Revolt Hub Naroda and Revolt Hub Himalaya Mall. The same is true for Chennai where the company operates out of Revolt Hub Velachery and Revolt Hub Anna Nagar.
Revolt RV400 and RV300 delivery plans
As part of expansion, Revolt Intellicorp was set to enter four new markets by March 2020. Initially the bikes were made available in Pune and Delhi in August 2019. While the company was all set to began dispatches of RV400 and RV300 to other cities, the lockdown in March put plans on hold. As per an update back then, the company was set to start ops in Ahmadabad on February 29, Hyderabad on March 2, Chennai on March 5, and Mumbai by end of March.
At the time, the company had also spoken about reduction in RV400 waiting period from 5 months to just 90 days for orders taken in March. Of course, that estimate now stands revised with production having been hampered, and previous dispatches still being sorted.
With curiosity around electric vehicles, in recent years it’s electric scooters that have made some headway when it comes to acceptance as compared to electric cars. While the electric scooter space has multiple competitors, and is shaping up as a scooter subset industry, electric motorcycles are somewhat of a concept with hardly any manufacturers. That is Revolt Motor’s USP.
