The Indian EV Pioneer | Altigreen Propulsion Labs
Nothing can stop an idea whose time has come!
We’ve all heard of this phrase, and it’s most applicable to the Electric Vehicles or EVs sector. We live in a world where the wealthiest man is the founder of an EV company - Tesla.
Pioneering the EV revolution in India is Altigreen Propulsion Labs, a market leader in last-mile transportation for commercial use.
Founder Amitabh Saran is a serial entrepreneur with almost 2 decades of experience. In his long career, he has worked with global companies like TCS, Philips, and HP. An ex-NASA engineer, Amitabh led the development of computational modeling systems for NASA scientists during his stint at the prestigious space organization.
Altigreen is an EV startup focused on the category of commercial three-wheeler vehicles, and it has raised almost 50 million dollars to date, with the Reliance group as one of its principal backers.
The company plans to create an EV ecosystem that is completely self-sustaining, from supplies to sales.
Amitabh spoke about his process of finding startup ideas and scaling them up. He also talked about the importance of building products in India that meet Indian needs instead of blindly copying the west.
