Gravton, a Hyderabad-based startup EV brand, has launched its first all-new revolutionary electric bike “Quanta”. While the two-wheeler segment is experiencing a pivotal moment in the recent years and slew of manufacturers entered the EV segment, Gravton derived the EV vision back in 2016 and is poised to make a significant development with the ‘Made for India’ purpose-driven (designed) vehicle ‘Quanta’.
Derived on the principles of sustainability and ‘Atmanirbhar’ or a ‘self-reliant’ India, Quanta is designed from the ground up with indigenously designed and developed components, thus making Gravton one of the only few EV brands manufacturing with the highest number of parts in India. Quanta is a perfect blend of feature-rich and performance-driven vehicle, which is set to win the hearts of both Urban and Rural India.
Announcing the launch of the vehicle, Mr. Parshuram Paka, Founder & CEO – Gravton Motors said, “With the launch of our first electric bike Quanta today, my dream has come true. Quanta resonates the true essence of not just Made in India but also Made for India. While this product is largely meant for riders from across the segments, we also have one coming up in the sports category, primarily meant for action oriented passionate young bikers”
“We have architected and engineered every component in-house and appointed vendors who can create components as per our configuration. We are also delighted to see some of the top component manufacturers agreeing to manufacture components as per our design and specifications and this truly shows the credibility and believability of our products’ he further added.
The ideology of building an electric vehicle was primarily based on a thought to develop a sustainable mobility solution that is suited for the Indian roads. Quanta comes with World’s first Rib caged chassis designed to give agility and safety to the battery compartment from theft and accident. The chassis geometry and fine-tuned suspension help to maneuver the vehicle with ease and comfort in city traffic and even on unpaved road conditions, thus offering the rider a rejoicing experience and exhilarating performance of Quanta.
Quanta features a 3KW proprietary BLDC motor, an in-house manufactured motor that is engineered for reduced mechanical losses and increased efficiency. Besides achieving a top speed up to 70 kmph, the vehicle ensures the rider gets an instant 170 Nm of maximum torque at wheel in any situation and on any patchy road. Clubbed with the BLDC motor capabilities and the tuned suspension bolted to a chassis with bigger 17inch wheels and a low center of gravity, Quanta proves to be the perfect vehicle meant for the countryside and rougher terrain.
While developing the product, Gravton has set itself a goal of setting free the rider from the range anxiety. Gravton’s Quanta draws power from a 3 kWh Li-ion detachable battery and offers a commendable 150 km travel range, extendable up to 320 km, on a single charge. Additionally, Gravton’s SES (Swap Eco System) boosts the confidence of the rider and offers convenience with an intelligent Urban Mobility Solution. With SES Ecosystem, the rider can locate the nearest Gravton’s battery station, order an extra battery and easily summon and swap the battery at any given location.
