Singapore-based SHADO Group has become the latest entrant into the fast-expanding last-mile electric vehicles (EVs) segment, with the company unveiling a new electric-powered three-wheeler called ERICK this week.
According to company executives, the product is a high-performance instantly-charged electric three-wheeler with a maximum range of 70 km and capable of operating at high ambient temperatures, a must for the Indian market.
