Personal transportation has become more important since Covid-19 has attacked us. The interest in personal use of light electric vehicles is booming and all over the world there is a demand for light and affordable (electric) vehicles. In the past 17 years, Blacksmith Electric has built several prototypes and tested them so that the final product(s) for the customer will be completely safe, comfortable and performant. “Now is the right time to launch these light electric vehicles on the Indian market”, says Ar Karthigeyan.

Besides that, continues Ar: “We also have a patented battery exchange technology system. Swappable batteries are a good solution for commuters. In a few minutes you can change the battery, and you are back on the road, fully charged and heading to your next destination.”

“If we can replace most of the combustion engine vehicles in our country, we could achieve a massive impact in urban areas.”

Electric scooter B4

Blacksmith Electric launches an important update of their electric scooter variety: the B4 is now ready for personal use (ideal for families) but this scooter is also an interesting solution for logistic companies (couriers, last-mile solutions, food delivery …). The technical specifications are almost the same as the B3-model but the design has been given a slightly different look than the previous model. We don’t call it a redesign but you discover more straight lines in the B4 version.
