LML Electric plans to launch three EVs in India in September this year, all of which will go on sale in our market next year.
Lohia Machinery Ltd (LML) is planning a return to the Indian two-wheeler market, and the manufacturer’s next inning will be with electric vehicles. The brand will work in partnership with Detail, another EV manufacturer called LML Electric. Both companies will operate under the same parent company – SG Corporate Mobility (SGCM).
Recently, some interesting details about LML Electric’s plans for the Indian market have been published online. The manufacturer is currently in talks with various state governments to set up a new manufacturing facility. An announcement on the same subject will be made later this year and the new plant will be fully operational by 2024.
Currently, SGCM will use the former Harley-Davidson plant at Bawale in Haryana. The plant has an annual production capacity of about 20,000 units. While Detel will mainly focus on low-speed EVs for Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, LML will focus on electric urban mobility and premium models.
LML Electric has partnered with eROCKIT, an electric two-wheeler manufacturer based in Germany. The latter will provide a platform and technology for the former to produce EVs in India. According to LML, they will not only rebase and launch vehicles, but they will also customize existing products or develop India-specific products to suit Indian demand.
29 September 2022, which is 50M On the anniversary of the LML brand, the manufacturer will unveil three products for the Indian market. It will include an electric scooter, an electric motorcycle and an ‘e-hyperbike’. The LML E-Hyperbike is expected to be based on the Erokit EV (pictured here), but will have a variety of technical features.
Motorcycles and ‘e-hyperbikes’ are expected to go on sale in January 2023, when the scooter will arrive later, in August 2023. In 2024, the manufacturer plans to launch a performance-oriented electric motorcycle, which is exciting news for enthusiasts. .
LML has aggressive EV plans for India, and aims to become one of the top three electric two-wheeler brands in our market by 2025. Also, the manufacturer will adopt battery-switching technology for its EVs, which will help make these vehicles more practical.
