This Startup Has Made India’s 1st All-Electric 60-tonne Truck: 100% Make In India!

India has got its own first all-electric heavy-duty truck by a Gurugram based fleet service provider, Infraprime Logistics Technologies(IPLT). The company is planning to launch its first commercial vehicle in the next 1.5 months.


According to IPLT, India’s first all-electric truck is fully designed, developed and manufactured in India. Siddharth Das, IPLT COO & CO founder while giving more information about this truck said that it uses four computer systems which are motor control, transmission, battery management, and battery charging system.

This truck also becomes the first electric vehicle that has an automatic transmission for a two-speed operation in India.

Subodh Yadav, the CEO & co-founder IPLT, informed that they needed a simulation tool when they started designing the transmission, so they approached a drivetrain design company in Canada. Since they didn’t have a simulation tool for transmission required for 60-tonne truck so IPTL designed its own simulation tool for the same.

The 60-tonne truck is powered by a 276 kWH battery and a top speed of 90 kmph. According to IPTL, It should be able to cover 400 Km without load and 200 Km with load. It is already in the pilot phase and can be seen running on Delhi-Kotputli road.

The company has planned to set up its own charging stations, which is supposed to be designed by the team currently working on this project.
They have also informed that a 30 member team has created two samples of 160 kWh fast chargers, it can charge the electric truck in 90 minutes.
