Creatara launches EV concepts VS4 and VM4
Creatara, a company that makes electric cars, started by Vikas Gupta and Ringlarei Pamei from IIT Delhi, showed off their new car designs called VS4 and VM4 at IIT Delhi’s Research & Innovation Park. This is a big step in making electric cars better for city travel because Creatara focuses on safety, letting you customize your car, and using really advanced technology.
With an annual growth rate exceeding 20%, the Indian market for electric vehicles is expanding at a rapid pace. The Economic Survey 2023 projects an impressive 49% CAGR between 2022 and 2030 in India’s domestic EV market, predicting 10 million annual sales by that time. The market for electric scooters and motorcycles was valued at USD 893 million in 2022 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 27.30% to USD 6,161 million by 2030.
With the goal of electrifying 30% of India’s vehicle fleet by 2030, Creatara joins a burgeoning market driven by rising fuel prices, environmental concerns, and government initiatives such as the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of (Hybrid &) Electric Vehicles (FAME) scheme. The industry was valued at over USD 1.18 billion in 2023 and is expected to grow to USD 2.92 billion by 2032.
In response to market concerns about safety, Creatara distinguishes itself with features like safe-start technology, which prevents unintentional or unauthorized acceleration by requiring a minimum rider weight to start the vehicle, and efficient passive battery pack cooling, which lowers the risk of overheating. The company stated in a release that having features like these gives riders peace of mind.
Modern sensors and GPS monitoring improve rider safety and awareness, seamlessly merging with the riding experience, while Creatara’s India-centric design is adapted for the numerous terrains and usage scenarios seen in India, the business claimed.
One important component of the e-bike’s design is its modular vehicle platform, which can be customized to suit a variety of use cases. This is demonstrated by the latest Moto-Cross variant, the VM4, which has features like longer suspension travel, high ground clearance, specially designed panels, etc. for navigating difficult terrain and hills.
“Our aim is to revolutionize personal mobility for the next generation. Our tailor-made electric two-wheelers are not just vehicles; they’re a statement of innovation, sustainability, and personalized freedom, designed to resonate with the dynamic lifestyle of today’s consumers.” Creatara’s indigenous designs are built from the ground-up and exemplify the integration of form and function.”Vikas Gupta, Co-Founder and CEO – Creatara stated.
“The e-bike offers customisation options that are unmatched in the industry, allowing levels of customization and enhancement which are first of its kind in the automotive industry. This modularity, coupled with unmatched customisation options, reflects Creatara’s commitment to meet the unique preferences of every rider,”he added.
With a top speed of 100 kmph and acceleration times of less than 3.7 seconds, Creatara defies the popular belief that EV performance is compromised. Other impressive performance features include a 100 km range on a single charge and a charging time of 4-5 hours. The company stated that all of these features are kept together by their robust proprietary Vehicle Control Unit (VCU) for stability and long-term durability.
