Glyde SX EV

The first batch of 460 Glyde EV are to be made at Earth Energy’s 20,000 sq. ft. greenfield facility in Maharashtra

Glyde SX and the Glyde SX+, the two variants of Mumbai-based automotive start-up Earth Energy EV’s commuter scooter are expected to be rolled out to the market place in January next year. Built using only indigenous components, Earth Energy has reiterated its commitment towards building the Indian EV infrastructure ecosystem with these two variants.

In the run up to the roll out, Earth Energy EV has appointed distributors across 10 Indian states, including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Orissa. The retail rollout is targeted for the 1st week of January 2022 with the first batch of 460 vehicles to be made at Earth Energy’s 20,000 sq. ft. greenfield manufacturing facility in Maharashtra.

Earth Energy has said that its vehicles are compliant with all public charging stations being set up by both government and private players. The achievement of 98% localization in manufacturing and spares considerably brings down the cost of maintenance as well as availability of spare parts. This makes Earth Energy an attractive proposition for the modern commuter.

Rushii Senghani, CEO and Founder of Earth Energy, said: “We are really happy with the way the Glyde SX & SX+ variants have performed. Our vehicles have been put through 7lakh testing kilometres and even today the bike has performed admirably, with it being put rigorously through its paces. The Glyde is a no fuss, reliable and efficient modern scooter that is made for the modern commuter.”

Since inception in 2017, Earth Energy has focused on the development of electric motorcycles, scooters, commercial vehicle and autonomous vehicle drivetrains with a strong focus on localization and high-quality offerings.
