Bengaluru-based start-up Log9 Materials has announced signing of a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Nashik, Maharashtra-headquartered EV manufacturer Jitendra New EV Tech Pvt. Ltd.
This MOU will pave the way for a long-term collaboration between Log9 and Jitendra New EV Tech, that would mainly encompass rolling out an e-scooter named ‘JMT 1000HS Rapid’ InstaCharged by Log9’s cutting-edge InstaCharge technology.
The JMT 1000 HS e-scooters, manufactured by Jitendra New EV Tech and InstaCharged by Log9’s RapidX batteries, have been designed and introduced to transform the last-mile logistics and delivery segment in India by bringing to the market superior technology and features that deliver superior profitability for the fleet operators of our country.
Powered by Log9 batteries, these scooters not only ensure full charge in 15 minutes, but also a long life of 10+ years, best-in-class safety and proven reliability throughout the complete life of the vehicle. The scooter offers a maximum range of upto 82 km and upto 150 kg. payload capacity.
Giving further impetus to Log9’s Responsible Delivery Movement, these scooters will eventually go a long way in making deliveries greener and in reducing the carbon footprint of the last-mile logistics sector. Against typical electric scooters that may take upto 2.5 hours to charge — which technically leads to the delivery partner (end-user) losing out on an average of 3 to 4 deliveries per hour — the JMT scooters will ensure that the delivery partners can stay on-the-go for the maximum amount of time thereby increasing their opportunity for revenues and profitability enhancement while also enabling them to contribute towards sustainability and fighting climate change.
Speaking about the collaboration, Kartik Hajela, Co-Founder & COO, Log9 Materials says, “We are pleased to partner with Jitendra New EV Tech for the integration of Log9’s battery packs and InstaCharge technology into the Rapid EV 2Ws manufactured by them. As a Responsible Energy pioneer, we are confident that our InstaCharge batteries on JMT scooters will provide the much-needed Power, Performance and Peace of Mind for the B2B last-mile delivery sector and shall further help the cause of reducing operational costs as well as lowering emissions footprint for the delivery and logistics sector. This also provides a great value addition opportunity in the commercial EV space due to long life, superfast charging and superlative performance of the electric scooters, which can help delivery partners to make more money per shift while making sustainable deliveries seamlessly.”
CA Samkit Jitendra Shah, Co-Founder, Jitendra New EV Tech says, “We are very enthusiastic about and looking forward to this alliance with Log9. Today when India has entered the electrification era, the biggest challenge is ensuring optimal EV Charging. To this end, Log9’s technology will give the market huge impetus especially for the B2B segment, and will further endorse 24×7 last-mile deliveries with electric scooters. We are further happy to note that this technology will raise the bar of last-mile delivery on wheels. We strongly believe that the association between Log9 and Jitendra New EV Tech will have a multiplier effect on our sales figures, which in turn will make our associate partner Log9 as well as our customers, dealers and us as manufacturers to be happy and profitable.”
