SNIPPET:

Certainly EU citizens wanted access to less expensive electric bicycles, as the EU manufacturers average over US$5,200 for their products.

Secondary markets such as the USA had tended to receive EU regulation-compliant bikes historically as well for simplicity’s sake, but things are changing as markets grow.

The Portland University Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) did a late 2017 summary of electric and motorized bicycle regulation across all US states and Canadian provinces. Only 42 of the 63 jurisdictions had regulations for electric bicycles, with the rest grandfathering them under low-speed motorized bicycles, and they are all over the map after that. Most require pedals, but some don’t. Speeds vary from no limits to 19 mph / 31 kph to 31 mph / 50 kph. Power output maximums vary from no requirements to 500 Watts to 1,500 Watts compared to the 250 Watts in the EU.

Only California is big enough at 40 million citizens with enough electric bicycle penetration by itself to represent an attractive market for differentiated products from major manufacturers in China and Taiwan. Its 20 mph and 750 Watt limit tend to dominate in the USA where EU regulated products aren’t offered instead.

Full, VERY informative, article:

India’s Mahindra Doubles Down On Electric Vehicles With New Factory

   

Mahindra’s Electric Mobility group is taking a leap into electric vehicles with the inauguration of its first Electric Technology Manufacturing Hub in Karnataka, India. The new facility is a tangible step forward in support of Mahindra’s Future of Mobility vision of providing Clean, Connected & Convenient vehicles for customers.

Mahindra ⚡ Treo

The facility will produce Mahindra’s first electric 3-wheelers, the Treo and Treo Yaari, under Mahindra’s +ME (Mahindra Electric) brand. The new 3-wheelers will start at Rs. 1.36 lakhs, including FAME subsidy (Faster Adoption and Manufacture of (Hybrid and) Electric Vehicles). Mahindra will also manufacture battery packs, power electronics, and motor assemblies at the new factory, which will increase the total output from +ME to 25,000 units per year.

Mahindra built the new factory with support from the state Government of Karnataka, which came out in force for the inauguration of the new facility. The new facility represents a Rs. 100 crore | US$14 million investment by Mahindra and represents a step into electrification for the company.

“As the pioneers of electric mobility in India, Mahindra is poised to be at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution while spearheading the endeavor through its range of clean mobility solutions,” Dr. Pawan Goenka, Managing Director, Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd and Chairman Mahindra Electric said. “The manufacturing hub inaugurated today is the next step by Mahindra in the Electric Technology space to increase local value addition and bring affordable EV technology to redefine mobility in India.”

The new hub and factory is a sign that $19 billion Mahindra does see a future that is electric ⚡ for its vehicle division, and that in India, the revolution is being led by 2- and 3-wheel electric ⚡ vehicles. They are better suited for India’s crowded urban centers and their smaller size means they can be built for much more consumer-friendly prices.

“At Mahindra Electric, our aim is to bring about a monumental change in the way India moves by enabling more EV products on the road through our +ME technology solutions,” Mahesh Babu, CEO Mahindra Electric said. “Reiterating our strong faith in EVs we have now invested in technologies that are core to EVs and have set up manufacturing of battery packs, motors, power electronics etc. in our new facility at Bengaluru. The government of Karnataka has been extremely supportive of this initiative.”

Mahindra’s Treo 3-wheelers are built around a lithium-ion ⚡ battery pack that Mahindra says will require no maintenance while enabling 170 km per charge. The fully electric ⚡ Treo and the ⚡ Treo Yaari will feature smoother rides and no noxious tailpipe emissions compared to gas-burning 3-wheelers.

At launch, the vehicles will be available in a handful of select dealerships in Bengaluru (Bangalore), the capital of Karnataka state in India and Hyderabad. Mahindra has plans to expand the availability of the vehicles to other cites after the initial rush of the launch.
