Kabira Mobility is a Panjim-based electric 2-Wheeler startup that provides a smart, connected and affordable mobility experience. The startup will launch pro trims of KM3000 and KM4000 electric bikes and also introduce KM 5000, an electric cruiser later this year.
Speaking about the development, Jaibir Siwach, CEO of Kabira Mobility, said,
“The company could increase the production capacity of its Dharwad plant to 60,000 units per month and is also considering establishing a new manufacturing facility in Uttar Pradesh’s Jewar, with a production capacity of 1.25 lakh units a month.”
Kabira Mobility is focusing primarily on the electric bike segment and is looking to garner a 30 per cent market share in the vertical over the next two years. Currently, Kabira Mobility has a production capacity of 40,000 units per month at its plant in Dharwad, Karnataka. The startup stated that the production capacity of the Dharwad plant could be enhanced to 60,000 units a month.
The Panjim-based electric two-wheeler maker aims to add around 70 dealerships this year to take the total number of outlets to over 100 mark.
Manoj George, Al-Abdulla Group CEO, stated that India holds immense potential, and the country is expected to become the global manufacturing hub for the electric two-wheeler segment.
Commenting on the development, Manoj said,
“Our investment in Kabira Mobility is aligned with Al-Abdulla group’s vision of investing in the renewable energy sector and supporting sustainable mobility solutions on a global scale.”
