Then this company was bought by Paytm in the year 2017.
Then the introduction of the curry oiler motor
By the year 2018, strict steps were taken by the government to promote e-vehicle in India rapidly. Then Sourav thought it appropriate to make an e-vehicle. And in 2018 the Oiler Motor was launched. By that time, many well-known companies had ventured into passenger EVs. But commercial EVs haven’t got off to a solid start. Because of this, Sourav started working towards a small commercial vehicle powered by battery.
