The Prana has 3 variants with varying ranges. The variants are named Class, Grand and Elite. The mid variant - Grand is priced at Rs 2.25 lakh. The 'Class', which is an entry level variant and more performance oriented 'Elite' variant are work in progress.
Srivaru Motors' founder and CEO, Mohan Ramasamy said that they wanted to build performance as a key differentiator.
"Our goal is to have our vehicles the best in safety, performance, comfort, and automobile design. Our vision is to have our automobiles number one in futuristic design as well as in customer satisfaction. Our vehicle will be built on renewable sources, making it better for the Earth while creating new jobs in green technology".
Srivaru Motors has an experience center in Coimbatore and will be expanding its footprint in India to other places such as Chennai, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Kerala. They have signed an MoU with the Tamil Nadu government and will be building a factory in that state.
Anyway back to Prana, this south Indian company has created a pretty compelling product for motorcycle enthusiasts. Although the hub motor used in the rear wheel is still a question mark, especially when the company wants to build for performance. The battery size of 4.32 kWh larger compared to Revolt RV400's 3.2 kWh. 100 km should not be a problem. Such a large battery will not be removable and the user will need to arrange for a plug to charge the batteries.
The company is expected to deliver to customers in March 2021 and we wish them the best of luck.
