Revolt RV400 and RV300 bookings to reopen this week, e-motorcycles likely to get a price cut

RattanIndia-backed electric vehicle maker Revolt Motors has announced it will reopen bookings for its RV400 and RV300 e-bikes in six cities on 18 June. The Gurugram-based company in a statement also said it is advancing the delivery dates for the bookings made by customers, which were earlier slated to be delivered in the latter part of the current year. Revolt, is currently operational in Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad, had on 6 May suspended fresh bookings for these bikes to avoid a supply-demand mismatch in the wake of overwhelming customer response.

The company said it will be reopening fresh bookings after confirming delivery dates for all existing orders in hand. Revolt is also sticking to its promise of delivering more bikes to its customers and reducing the gap between booking date and delivery, it said, adding the company has been vigorously working towards increasing the production capacities to ensure that the customers do not have to wait for the motorcycles for long post the bookings.

Rahul Sharma, CEO & MD, Revolt Motors said, "We are delighted with the response we have received from our customers across these six cities so far. The demand has been phenomenal, and we are sure that the various incentives being provided around pricing schemes will help consumers make the shift to EVs with ease." The latest modification to the FAME II scheme with respect to the incentives is just going to fasten the adoption of electric vehicles in the country, he said, adding, "we're also working towards increasing the production capacity, and hence striving towards reducing the delivery gap between booking date and delivery.”

"With a huge demand for electric motorcycles in the market, we are confident that Revolt will fulfil the rapid shift towards EV mobility with an ecosystem which is environment friendly and sustainable in the country," said Rajiv Rattan, Chairman, Revolt and RattanIndia Enterprises.

Revolt has production lines in the Manesar auto hub in Haryana.
