GoZero, a UK-based electric mobility and lifestyle brand, has announced that it is set to enter India soon. But while the company had announced that it will launch two new e-bikes - the One and Mile - by March, we expect the bikes to roll out of the company's showrooms in April. GoZero has tied up with Kolkata-based Kirti Solar to manufacture the e-bikes in India. The latter has also invested around $250,000 (around Rs 1.7 crore) in GoZero Mobility.
The Mile, which is positioned as an entry-level e-bike, is powered by a 300Wh battery and has a claimed range of 45km. The One, on the other hand, is powered by a bigger 400Wh battery and offers a claimed range of 60km.
Features on the Mile include a USB port, LCD display, three riding modes (throttle mode, pedal assist mode and walk mode) and disc brakes at the front. The One gets some additional bells and whistles such as an extra riding mode (cruise mode), 5-level pedal assist, disc brakes at both ends and a backlit display. The company is yet to announced the prices of the e-bikes. So stay tuned for more updates.
