Founded by Nikhil Gunda and Meher Sai in 2020, Gear Head Motors aims to bridge the gap between the global supply of electric bikes or cycles and its Indian customers and make electric vehicles mainstream in the country.
With its products completely made in India and sustainable, the brand has delivered more than 8,000 tricycles and over 5,000 e-bikes so far.
Speaking about Gear Head Motors, Nikhil Gunda, Founder of GearHead Motors, said,
“Currently, there has been a rise of electric vehicle penetration in the Indian market by foreign companies trying to sell their substandard products. Due to these products being imported, they often do not align with Indian conditions, and hence the demand for electric vehicles in the market is seen to be on a decline. We came up with the idea to build a product that is affordable and will lead to an increase in homegrown products. Aligning with the needs of an Indian customer, hence, has been an important part of building this brand. With this, we are creating a sustainable and healthy ecosystem.”
