Creatara Mobility has been deeply researching on making safer electric two-wheelers, which the company plans to roll out once their testing is complete.
This is an IIT Delhi incubated electric vehicle start-up.
“Anyone can glue together some plastic parts, call it EV and sell. But the real work is about making safer electric vehicles that can adapt to Indian driving conditions and be reliable,” said Vikas Gupta, who co-founded Creatara Mobility Pvt Ltd with Ringlarei Pamei in 2018.
Both are an alumnus of IIT-Delhi.
Creatara Mobility is making next-generation electric vehicles, which are safer and more reliable, the entrepreneur said. “Our goal is to make the world’s safest electric two-wheeler,” said Gupta, who is using IIT-Delhi’s facility called CART Lab to run tests on prototypes. The incubation facility, known as FITT, is also supported by the government’s Department of Science and Technology.
Gupta said Creatara Mobility provides multiple failsafe mechanisms, from cell to pack level. “Whatever cells we are using, we are testing them in-house. We have our standards for grading parameters and sorting, which we developed in-house,” he said.
Expected to be launched at the next Auto Expo, Creatara Mobility’s scooter is likely to enter the Automotive Research Association of India or ARAI, certification stage soon. “We plan to launch and sell the scooter in Delhi and the National Capital Region initially,” Gupta said.
His company won the Altair Start-up Challenge in April this year for its innovative work on structural components and major systems during the early product design and development phases.
Altair gave the award to Creatara Mobility in collaboration with ARAI, the Confederation of Indian Industry, and the government’s “Start-up India” program for being one of the most innovative and promising EV start-ups.
The Creatara Mobility team is now backed by two angel investors, Soonicorn and NK Securities, for an undisclosed amount
Creatara has also been awarded a grant of ₹ 64 lakh by automotive components and systems firm Sona Comstar under the SCIDIP, or Sona-Comstar-IIT Delhi Innovation Programme.
