Jupiter Wagons to roll out electric commercial vehicles

By the third quarter of the calendar year 2023, Jupiter Wagons Ltd (JWL), which recently showcased two light commercial electric cars through its subsidiary Jupiter Electric Mobility (JEM), hopes to launch the product commercially. JEM and the North American-based GreenPower Motor Corporation, which specialises in commercial electric cars for the passenger and freight transportation markets, have formed a strategic relationship.

The larger vehicle, with a capacity of 7 tonnes, would first be produced in its unit, according to Vivek Lohia, managing director of Jupiter Wagons. The smaller vehicle, with a capacity of 2.2 tonnes, would be manufactured at its facility in Indore. In order to expand into the after-sales requirements for a seamless customer experience, the company wants to undertake end-to-end production in India and develop service centres in important regions.

The last-mile delivery requirements will be mostly met by CEVs, which will initially target the major metropolises of Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Pune, and Bangalore. The 7 tonnes vehicle should be available by the end of this year, and we plan to begin deliveries of the 2.2 tonnes vehicle by August of this year. We can now create 5,000 automobiles at our factory, but we want to increase that number so that we can eventually make close to 50,000," Lohia told sources.
