Dandera Ventures recently launched the OTUA, a cargo electric 3-wheeler. OTUA’s customer base comprises last-mile delivery businesses and independent delivery facilities. Kshitij Bajaj, Founder & CEO of Dandera Ventures, commented, “OTUA raises the bar for everything that last-mile delivery drivers and fleet owners have come to expect from a cargo EV. From world-class and industry-leading driver ergonomics and safety to outright performance in terms of range, volume, and capacity, OTUA is the first cargo EV to offer an uncompromising vision of transitioning to sustainable mobility for the global logistics and last-mile delivery industry.”
OTUA could be ruling the 3-wheeler EV industry in India for a while now. It boasts the highest volume and load-carrying capacity of any electric cargo 3-wheeler. OTUA can carry upto 900 kgs and run upto 165 km per charge. To widen its customer base, OTUA offers many variants ranging from Rs. 3.5 lakhs to Rs. 5.5 lakhs. It’s also working on a subscription-based model, which will soon be available for retail purchases. The most impressive thing is that OTUA is fully ‘Made in India’ from the parts to the batteries.
Kanav Manchanda, Founder & COO of Dandera Ventures, said, “Both OTUA, and Dandera, have been developed to set new standards in the EV industry. Where the OTUA is primed to be India’s most sophisticated EV, its rollout is also planned in a manner that enables efficient adaptability. The future is ours for the taking.”
In the financial year 2021 alone, commercial outlets sold 2,19,450 units of e-three-wheelers. According to the Vaahan database of the government of India, 47% of net 3-wheelers sold were electric. These statistics favor the growth of the commercial 3-wheeler EV industry in the coming years, and OTUA could be one of the top sellers in this category.
