The famous Kinetic Luna is coming back as electric mopeds.
Kinetic Engineering has commenced production of chassis and other assemblies for the E-Luna, which is to be launched soon by sister company Kinetic Green Energy & Power Solutions.
KEL has developed all the major subassemblies for the E-Luna including the main chassis, main stand, side-stand and swingarm and has set up a dedicated production line with an initial capacity of 5,000 sets a month.
Kinetic Green, which is headed by Sulajja Firodia Motwani, launched two electric two-wheelers in 2021.
In September this year, the company launched the Kinetic Zing High Speed Scooter, claimed to have a top speed of 60kph and range of 125km per charge.
It is priced at Rs 85,000 (ex-showroom, India) inclusive of the FAME-II subsidy.
A brand-new line of over 30 welding machines has been set up for welding these critical and other parts at the company’s Ahmednagar plant, which will also undertake full finishing and painting operations.
The parts for the E-Luna are expected to add significantly – estimated at Rs 30 crore annually – to KEL’s topline, beginning first quarter 2023.
