June 2023 : Zen Mobility, an emerging Indian Electric Vehicle OEM, situated at Manesar, Gurgaon (Haryana), has recently introduced the Zen Micro Pod, a purpose-built cargo 3-wheeler LEV (Light Electric Vehicle), as part of its goal to create inspirational designs and engineering innovations in electric vehicles.
The Zen Micro Pod will be available in two variants - the R5x and R10x. With a maximum payload of 150 kilograms, the Zen Micro Pod surpasses conventional 2 wheelers’ load carrying capacity by 2.5 times. The vehicle operates at a minimal running cost, consuming only 4 units of electricity with a charging time of approx. 1.5 - 2 hrs. The lightweight technology used in the Zen Micro Pod requires less motor power to generate the same output, saving on battery costs and reducing cost-per-delivery. Its compact, ergonomic design provides comfort and convenience for riders, making it easy to navigate through busy urban streets while delivering a smooth riding experience. The vehicle's braking system has been designed with rider safety in mind, ensuring smooth and effective braking in all situations.
Speaking on the announcement, Namit Jain, Founder and CEO, Zen Mobility said that “We are excited to announce the launch of our latest product, the Zen Micro Pod, a 1st ever purpose-built three-wheeler Light Electric Vehicle in India. This innovative and compact design is set to revolutionize the last-mile delivery space with its efficient performance. We have also collaborated with renowned leasing and rental companies, as well as fleet and third-party logistics (3PL) providers to ensure seamless deployment of the Zen Micro Pod, which can be leased or rented monthly, with fees of up to INR 9,999 determined by factors such as lease type, tenure, and other considerations. As an organisation, we are committed to creating a positive impact on urban mobility by offering responsible mobility solutions that cater to the needs of society and enhance productivity while minimizing carbon footprint and overall cost of ownership. Our ultimate goal is to bridge the supply and demand gap of EVs in last-mile delivery and provide effective fleet management solutions that we feel will excite the E-commerce and fleet companies. The Zen Micro Pod is a significant step towards achieving this objective.”
