Gravton Quanta has made its way into the Asia Book of record for clocking the Kanyakumari-to-Khardungla in 6.5 days – which is an industry-first feat.
Last year, the Hyderabad based startup, Gravton Motors launched the Quanta which is an electric motorcycle for the price of Rs 99,000 (ex-showroom). The company has now announced that Quanta electric motorcycle has made it into the Asia Book of Records for clocking the K2K ride in record time.
The Gravton Quanta made it from Kanyakumari to Khardungla in 164hours and 30 minutes (6.5 days). The Quanta did not stop for a recharge, instead, the manufacturers kept swapping the drained battery with a completely charged one. However, the team took an overnight break in Manali for acclimatisation.
The ride was flagged off on September 13, 2021, and the Quanta cover a total distance of 4011.9 km by September 20, 2021.
Parshuram Paka, Founder & CEO Gravton Motors, said ‘Over the last one year, the EV industry was grappled in both upswing and downswing in matters concerning the performance of the EV vehicles launched in the market. To counter the uncertainty and also to instill a strong belief that, we are competent enough to design and develop EV vehicles that can outperform petrol-powered vehicles, we took this unconventional route and set the Quanta ride this impeccable K2K drive’
