The deliveries of the Ultraviolette F77 will commence in the first quarter of the next year, and the company will continue with the same prices that they announced during the launch of the F77 back in 2019.
The Ultraviolette F77, the fastest all-electric motorcycle in India, will go on sale in March 2022. An official price announcement of the F77 was held in November 2019. Ultraviolette launched the F77 at a starting price of Rs 3 lakh (on-road), while the highest-spec model was launched for Rs 3.25 lakh (on-road). The official communications team of Ultraviolette has confirmed that the prices of the F77 will be similar to what was announced over a year ago.
The production of the F77 is set to begin in the first quarter of the next year. The TVS backed firm confirms that 15,000 units will be produced in the first year. Ultraviolette will start accepting pre-orders for the F77 towards the end of this year.
Ultraviolette has also announced its plans to set up a production and assembly facility. The firm has informed that the plant will be set up near Electronic City, Bengaluru. The production facility will initially have a capacity of rolling out 15,000 units annually, and Ultraviolette plans on increasing its annual production capacity to 1.2 lakh units. Ultraviolette says that this will generate employment for over 500 employees, who will be trained to specialise in EV production and assembly for over the next five years.
Narayan Subramaniam, the founder and CEO of Ultraviolette, said, 'This is an important milestone for us in our journey towards building a superior EV experience for India and international markets. We chose this location for its strategic proximity to our R&D facility in Bangalore, as well as a strong supply-chain ecosystem in and around the region.
'We have received an overwhelming response for the F77, and this facility will help us cater to that demand over the next few years. Most importantly, the F77 has been designed and built indigenously, and over 90% of the vehicle, including the battery packs, will be manufactured using locally sourced components,' added Subramaniam.
